With more than 530 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 17 premieres (including a revival of Tyler Perry’s House of Payne, the Canadian medical drama Transplant and the Peacock-bound A.P. Bio), 13 finales (including Wynonna Earp‘s summer closer) and myriad specials (including a Real Housewives reunion and the MTV Video Music Awards).
