Sci Fi TV Listings for the Week of September 12th: Premieres for American Horror Story and Z Nation, Finales for Mr. Robot, Beauty and the Beast, and Dark Matter




Weekly roundup of science fiction and fantasy shows (as well as movies/specials of note) on the Prime Time TV schedule, also including programs that may be of interest to genre fans. Air dates and times subject to change without notice.

american-horror-story-s6This week is pretty much the changing of the guard from Summer to Fall. Almost all of the Summer entries will have wrapped up by the end of the week with the finales for Mr. Robot (USA), Beauty and the Beast (CW), and Dark Matter (Syfy), leaving only Fear the Walking Dead among the Summer shows still on the schedule (I count The Strain as an early Fall entry this year). And then we have two more early Fall premieres with American Horror Story kicking off on Wednesday for FX and Z Nation having a two hour debut on Syfy on Friday. This week also has what I believe is the lowest number of shows with a new episode we have seen all year and it is your last chance to get caught up on your DVR queue. Because next week is the official start of the Fall season and things will kick into high gear very quickly with ten premieres (you can get a glimpse of that in the highlights section below). You can see the full Fall schedule at this link, and get yourself buckled in because currently over 40 (!) sci fi & fantasy shows are scheduled to debut between now and November. Be sure to keep up with the weekly listings at this site and to follow Cancelled Sci Fi for the latest ratings results as well as any renewal or cancellation announcements.
