Next Week in TV 2/3: Get Ready for Super Bowl LIII

By Mario Wario, DRWHO42, & Alyssa

Alright football fans today is Super Bowl Sunday, which means it is time to get ready to see the Los Angeles Rams go against the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LIII at 6 p.m. ET (CBS). Hopefully this contest turns out great, but let’s just hope the referees call a good game this time.

The rest of the week is rather light, but there are two heavy hitters celebrating major milestones this week on The CW. The 150th episode of Arrow airs this Monday night (8 p.m. ET), while the 300th episode of Supernatural airs this Friday (8 p.m.). Do not be surprised if Supernatural continues for another 15 seasons. Heck, this series could go on for 100 years.

Speaking of which, The CW renewed Supernatural last week as well as nine other shows: Legacies, Charmed, Black Lightning, Arrow, Dynasty, Legends of Tomorrow, Riverdale, Supergirl, and The Flash.

On Friday, Netflix drops even more content for all of us to enjoy, while HBO has a special documentary to watch called Won’t You Be My Neighbor? on Saturday (8 p.m. ET).

So, that is it for this week! The complete TV schedule is listed below and do let us know what you will be watching by posting on the FoCC forums. As always, happy viewing!
