We're just days away from Halloween, and this year it falls on the weekend, which means many of you will have made very non-TV-centric plans. Still, the week is full of events, from the premiere of Supergirl tonight to the premiere of Ash vs. Evil Dead on Saturday.

Check out the week in TV below. What's on your watchlist?


Supergirl (CBS) Monday, 8:30 PM - "Pilot"

Series premiere! - At last, we've arrived at one of the most anticipated new series of the fall, and it's aiming to give us a superhero show unlike anything else on TV right now. We heavily scrutinize every comic-book show out there, sure, but something about Supergirl seems to have prompted a kind of extra wave of speculation. We've nitpicked the costumes, endlessly debated the tone of the trailers, and wondered over and over again if this show would bring us the super-powered woman we really want, or sidestep all the stuff we were hoping to see. Now we finally get to find out. Check out a preview below.


Bones (FOX) Thursday, 8 PM - "The Resurrection in the Remains"  and Sleepy Hollow (FOX) Thursday, 9 PM - "Dead Men Tell No Tales"

Crossover Alert! - Bones is one of FOX's veteran shows at this point, a fun procedural that solves murders in often unconventional ways, while Sleepy Hollow is a relatively young show still trying to find the right format that'll keep it alive for years to come. Bones traffics heavily in science and reason, while Sleepy Hollow is bursting with fantasy, occult lore and truly bonkers plotting. So, for Halloween Week, FOX decided nothing could be more fun than crossing the shows over, and this week we get that in a two-hour event. Check out a preview below.


Grimm (NBC) Friday, 9 PM - "The Grimm Identity"

Season premiere! - Over the past few years, we've watched several NBC genre series -- including DraculaHannibal and Constantine -- try and fail to maintain an audience on Friday nights. It's notoriously hard for many series, because it's not exactly a stay-home night for many viewers, but Grimm has managed to hold on. Thanks to a solid live viewership and a significant boost from DVR viewers, the fairy-tale-inspired fantasy series just keeps churning. Now we get to see if it can earn another season once again.


Ash vs. Evil Dead (Starz) Saturday, 9 PM - "El Jefe"

Series premiere! - Halloween falls on a Saturday this year, which means many people will be out with their families or attending parties in elaborate costumes. Then there are those of us who will be on the couch, eagerly awaiting the premiere of Ash vs. Evil Dead, the long-awaited return of Bruce Campbell to the Evil Dead universe. This time around, Ash's life has been Deadite-free for a while, but a moment of stupidity brings all manner of evil monsters back into his world. The trailers have been wicked fun, and the addition of Lucy Lawless doesn't hurt, so what's stopping you from watching this? Check out a preview below.


The Librarians (TNT) Sunday, 8 PM - "And the Drowned Book" and "And the Broken Staff"

Season premiere! - Last year, TNT successfully transmuted its success with Noah Wyle's The Librarian TV movies into a successful adventure series, and this season we'll get to see if the show can sustain that success. Things will start off with a bang with a huge storm over Manhattan that will bring all the Librarians together. Check out a preview below.
