TV THIS WEEK: Hawkeye shoots its shot; Masters of the Universe returns; Chucky; La Brea & more

Hit the bullseye (hey-o!) of geeky programming with us.

Hawkeye PRESS Still

After taking a break from live-action fare with the animated What If...? series, Marvel Studios is back at it on Disney+ with a brand new original live action project just in time for the holidays.

Disney+ leads this week with the series premiere of Hawkeye, a new original series loosely inspired by Matt Fraction's acclaimed comic run. Netflix is mining a bit more nostalgia this week, with the launch of Part 2 of Kevin Smith's He-Man revival Masters of the Universe: Revelation. SYFY has a batch of new episodes, led by a bloody new Chucky and a fresh Day of the Dead.

The CW has a new Flash, which is continuing on with the second installment of the big crossover event "Armageddon" (which, at least in its opening hour, is shaping up to be one of the coolest Arrowverse twists in years!), and NBC has a new episode of the sci-fi thriller La Brea (which is also picking up after a game-changing twist last week).

If you're looking for something a bit warmer and fuzzier, there are also plenty of holiday specials also rolling out for their annual network appearances this week, including Rudolph, Frosty and the Grinch. So if you're a fan of the classics, set your DVR accordingly.

Check out the full rundown below and let us know what you'll be watching.
