TV THIS WEEK: Haven S4 premieres, Under The Dome and more!


While the fall season officially starts next week, we do get the season premiere of Haven. And we'll see the penultimate episode of CBS's massive hit Under the Dome.

Also this week, REELZ offers up a sci-fi movie about a solar storm that threatens the Earth called Exploding Sun, the artists must incorporate Mother Nature in their latest looks on Face Off, the heroes head to Planet Comicon on Heroes of Cosplay, a couple are terrorized by a ghostly socialite on Paranormal Witness, Marco tries to save his son on The Bridge, and Syfy's movie-naming mashups continue with Robocroc.

Here's what we have to look forward to this week on sci-fi, fantasy and paranormal TV.
