Welcome to This Week in TV, a weekly feature in which we spotlight the series debuting or returning to air. Set your DVRs and alarms: below are the highlights for the next seven days. 

Monday, March 28

SPECIAL

Supergirl/The Flash crossover episode (CBS, 8 p.m.)

It’s a match made in Greg Berlanti-verse heaven: Grant Gustin’s sunny Barry Allen speeds into Melissa Benoist’s sunny Supergirl’s sunny National City in a crossover that’s bound to include a race between the two. (Hey, that’s what Smallville did with their versions of Superman and The Flash.)

Tuesday, March 29

SEASON PREMIERE

Deadliest Catch (Discovery, 9 p.m.)

Season 12 serves up the fishing docuseries’ youngest captain — as well as its youngest fish! Just kidding. No one knows the fishes’ ages. 

SPECIAL

The Late Late Show Carpool Karaoke Primetime Special (CBS, 10 p.m.)

Multitalented late show host, Justin Bieber career savior, and recent EW cover star James Corden sings in cars with stars (hey there, J. Lo!) for an hour-long event that’ll be on a lot earlier than his regular show.

Wednesday, March 30

SERIES PREMIERES

The Path (Hulu)

Aaron Paul cries, Hugh Dancy creeps, and Michelle Monaghan preaches in this moody, engrossing drama from Parenthood producer Jessica Goldberg about a cult-like, tight-knit religion.

Lopez (TV Land, 10 p.m.)

No, your eyes are not deceiving you: George Lopez indeed has another show, and this one covers the comedian’s problems with life as a wealthy celebrity (think: drama with talent agents, fellow celebs, and the like). The only thing missing is a laugh track, which you’re expected to provide, of course!

MIDSEASON PREMIERE

Empire (Fox, 9 p.m.)

It’s back! Expect showdowns, meltdowns, and lots ‘n lots of Cookie.

Thursday, March 31

SERIES PREMIERE

Rush Hour (CBS, 10 p.m.)

Don’t rush to watch this one live: Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker don’t star in this series based on the popular film franchise, and repackaging the story for the small-screen meant predictable procedural elements instead of goofy-but-addictive action. Maybe there’s a blooper reel at the end of each episode?

SEASON PREMIERE

Archer (FX, 10 p.m.)

If these reviews of every Bond film are any indication, this season of the animated series will be just as funny as ever.

Friday, April 1

SERIES PREMIERES

The Ranch (Netflix)

It’s like That ’70s Show, but only with Ashton Kutcher and Danny Masterson! And only on a ranch! Also, Sam Elliott?!

Wynonna Earp (Syfy, 10 p.m.)

Who’s Wynonna Earp, you ask? (Or rather, what is a Wynonna Earp?) She’s the gun-toting great-great-grand-daughter of a demon-killing deputy. Think Supernatural, but with shades of Justified and with a female lead. 

SEASON PREMIERES

Banshee (Cinemax, 10 p.m.)

The fourth and final season of this violent, bloody series about a violent, bloody town brings more violence and blood to the screen. (Yeah, I’m glad Banshee, Pennsylvania, doesn’t actually exist.)

Motive (USA, 10 p.m.)

On this procedural, a detective investigates why killers kill. Ooooh, so that’s why this show is called “Motive”!

Saturday, April 2

SERIES PREMIERE

Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries (Ovation, 8 p.m.)

The Aussie drama based on Kerry Greenwood’s novels follows a female 1920s private investigator who’s sassy, sexy, and works high Melbourne society just as effectively as she works her cases.

Sunday, April 3

SERIES PREMIERE

The Story of God With Morgan Freeman (National Geographic, 9 p.m.)

They really should have just named this docuseries The Story of Morgan Freeman. Keep up, National Geographic!

SEASON PREMIERE

Call the Midwife (PBS, 8 p.m.)

It’s the fifth season of this heartwarming period drama, but these midwives still deliver! (Sorry.)

SPECIALS

The 51st Annual Academy of Country Music Awards (CBS, 8 p.m.)

For country music fans, obviously.

The 2016 iHeartRadio Music Awards (TBS, TNT, TruTV, 8 p.m.)

For radio music fans … obviously.
