The TVLine-Up: What's New, Returning and Leaving the Week of Sept. 27

The Comey Rule on Showtime

This weekly feature is in addition to TVLine’s daily What to Watch listings and monthly guide to What’s on Streaming.

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 27 premieres (including The Comey Rule, a Weakest Link reboot and new seasons of Fargo, The Simpsons and Saturday Night Live), seven finales (including The 100‘s last episode ever) and myriad specials (including the first presidential debate between former Vice President Joe Biden and incumbent POTUS Donald Trump).
