This weekly function complements the daily TVLine lists “What to Watch” and the monthly guide to “What’s on Streaming”.

With more than 530 scripted shows now airing over broadcast, cable and streamingIt’s easy to forget that a favorite comedy is returning or that the new “prestige drama” you’ve been expecting is about to debut.
