The TVLine-Up: What's New, Returning and Leaving the Week of Dec. 6

The Grinch - Matthew Morrison

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 22 premieres (including Shameless‘ swan song, the Stateside debut of Canada’s Nurses and the midseason return of Power Book II: Ghost), 14 finales (including I Can See Your Voice and the very final episodes of Netflix sitcoms Ashley Garcia and The Big Show Show), and myriad holiday specials (including Dolly Parton’s Holly Dolly Christmas and NBC’s Matthew Morrison-led Grinch musical).
