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

With nearly 500 scripted shows now airing across broadcast, cable and streaming, 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 14 series return from winter break (including The Good Doctor, Supernatural and This Is Us), six season premieres (including grown-ish, The Magicians and Sex Education), a dozen debuts (including Stephen King adaptation The Outsider) and so much more.
