A few of the best shows of the past several years are coming to a close this week, and there's also a little annual sports ball event (and its line-up of A-list trailers and commercials) if you're so inclined.

The Super Bowl hits this week, and even if you're not into football, there will be plenty of movie sneak peeks and geeky commercials to check out during the big game. The biggest story, though, are the finales: The CW's Arrow has its final episode, along with NBC's The Good Place. Digging a bit deeper, we also have some buzzy season finales, including CBS's Evil (which has already been renewed for a second season) and ABC's Emergence.

There's also plenty of other new stuff to go around, like Riverdale, Manifest, Black Lightning, Doctor Who, Charmed, The Outsider and a whole lot more.

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