The TVLine-Up: What's Leaving, New and Returning the Week of May 12

For the People Cancelled

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 “Brat” 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, order a Season Pass, pop a fresh Memorex into the VCR… however it is you roll.

This week, you’ll find over 30 season — and series — finales (including The Big Bang Theory, For the People and Veep), 11 premieres (including George Clooney’s Catch-22) and so much more.
