It's season finale week, with The CW's full slate of remaining superhero shows saying goodbye for the summer.

We get Oliver's big face-off with Prometheus on Arrow, Supergirl's fight with Evil Teri Hatcher and Barry Allen fights his future self over on The Flash. If you dig The CW's brand of DC shows, it's one heck of a line-up this week. If that wasn't enough, we also get Arrow star Stephen Amell's appearance on American Ninja Warrior, where he gets to show off his real-life superhero skills on the course. It's the perfect farewell to the season.

We also have new Twin Peaks, Doctor Who, American Gods and a whole lot more.
