We’ve officially hit the December doldrums, which means there’s not a whole lot of new stuff this week. But, with a lot of your favorites (probably) on hiatus, it’s the perfect time to check out a few shows you might’ve missed.

We have new episodes from some network genre fare, including the surprisingly fun Timeless on NBC, as well as Fox’s freaky Exorcist series (which will be hitting its season and maybe series finale this week). There are also some new shows on Syfy (Corporate owner of Blastr -Ed), including the new near-future thriller Incorporated and the zombie-bashing Z Nation.

Let’s dig in, and be sure to set your DVR accordingly.
