If you're looking for a clever spooky project to provide a few scares this summer, The CW is trying to fill that void this week. We also have some summer show finales as we slowly start to move toward the fall season.

The CW's new anthology horror series Two Sentence Horror Stories makes its debut this week, bringing the viral concept to primetime. The network is also wrapping up the sixth season of the post-apocalyptic sci-fi series The 100, and CBS is dropping the finale of its action-packed thriller Blood & Treasure (already renewed for a second season). Digging a bit deeper, AMC has new episodes of Fear the Walking Dead and Preacher this week, as well as a preview of the tenth season of The Walking Dead.

Beyond that, there's a new Legion on FX, a new Krypton on SYFY, a new The InBetween on NBC, a new Killjoys on SYFY, and plenty of ghost-hunting and investigation shows across the dial.

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