Week in TV: 12/4 Fall Finales, Specials, & MythBusting

By Alyssa & DRWHO42

As we enter into December the holiday season specials and story lines being to ramp up. There is plenty to choose from this week ranging including tree lightings, fashion shows, live musical productions, and holiday themed episodes for some of our favorite series.

The new series stand out this week is Netflix’s, White Rabbit Project. If you like the the MythBuster assistants – Grant Imahara, Tory Belleci and Kari Byron – this is the show to watch. I for one am looking forward to a little more edgy show, fingers crossed.  Amazon’s Mozart In The Jungle returns for Season 3. In addition, Hulu takes a comedic look at the underground world of Los Angeles storefront psychics, Shut Eye.

Westworld & Dirk Gently wrap up their first seasons. Both have offered very unique viewing experiences in their first seasons and we look forward to what’s in store for next season.

There are just a few fall finales this week, Marvel Agents of Shield, Once Upon a Time, & Conviction. In addition, The CW is putting a bow on their fall season as well with The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, Arrow, &  Supernatural.

With the fall season wrapping up there is time over the next few weeks to catch up on the DVR backlog or streaming offerings. We’ll be announcing all the winter & spring season premieres every Sunday so stay tune to our weekly posts for more details and picks.
