The Olympics Are Taking Over NBC; What Other Shows Will Be Airing New Episodes?


While some shows are taking breaks during the next couple of weeks because of the Olympics, others will still be airing new episodes. If you’re not interested in the Olympics, or would like to have something else to watch while you take a break from the winter events, here’s a list of what will be new, broken down by network.

The CW

A new episode of “Hart of Dixie” airs on February 10 before the new series “Star-Crossed” premieres in its time slot on February 17. That premiere will be repeated February 18, and it’s worth watching it at least one of those two days. Also, there are new episodes of “Beauty and the Beast” airing February 10 and 17.


There will be new episodes of “Intelligence” on February 10 and 17 and “Criminal Minds” and “CSI” on February 19.


This is the network to watch for the most new programming, with new episodes of “Enlisted” and “Raising Hope” on February 7; “Almost Human” and “The Following” on February 10 and 17; “Dads,” “New Girl,” and “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” on February 11; “American Idol” on February 12, 13, 18, 19, and 20; and “Rake” on February 13 and 20.


There are new episodes of “Super Fun Night” on February 12 and 19 and “Castle” on February 17.


You can still check out new episodes of “Bitten,” “Being Human” and “Lost Girl” on Mondays and “Helix” on Fridays for your sci-fi needs.


There will still be new episodes of the very dark “Teen Wolf” season 3B.

ABC Family

There’s still plenty to come on “Pretty Little Liars” during these couple weeks, including an all black and white episode in the theme of 1940s Film Noir on February 11, plus “Twisted” returns with new episodes.


The Olympics can’t stop walkers, as “The Walking Dead” and “Talking Dead” return with new episodes on February 9. Aren’t you looking forward to what happens next now that they’ve left the prison behind?


There were new episodes of “Shameless,” “House of Lies” and “Episodes” the night of the Super Bowl, so it should be no surprise that these shows aren’t taking these weeks off.


“True Detective,” “Girls” and “Looking” may not have been new Super Bowl Sunday (the half-hour comedies aired Saturday instead), but they will be during the Olympics.

Will you be watching the Olympics for the next couple of weeks or some of these new episodes?
