We have both a big premiere and a big finale this week, but beyond that things are looking a bit thin on the small screen. That said, there's still more than enough to keep you busy.

CBS's asteroid-collision drama Salvation returns for its second season as the threat becomes public and things start to change. On SYFY, acclaimed space opera The Expanse wraps up its third season before jumping to Amazon Prime for Season 4 next year. Looking beyond those, we have a new block of 12 Monkeys episodes on SYFY; a new episode of The CW's post-apocalypse drama The 100; a new HUMANS on AMC; a new Reverie on NBC; and more.

If you're looking to streaming to fill in the gaps on the slow nights, the new season of Marvel's Luke Cage is also live and well worth a binge on Netflix.

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