Set Your DVR: Here's What's New (and Leaving) the Week of May 20


This weekly feature is in addition to TVLine’s daily What to Watch listings.

With nearly 500 scripted shows now airing across broadcast, cable, streaming and whatever “go90” is, it’s easy to forget that a favorite comedy is returning, or that the new “prestige drama” you anticipated is about to debut. So consider this our reminder to Set Your DVR.

This week, we’re also going ahead and listing every major season (and series) finale from the seven days ahead. Those include Fox’s last-ever episode of Brooklyn Nine-Nine (which was cancelled, then resurrected by NBC), and the actual last episode of ABC’s The Middle.
