TV THIS WEEK: Negan comes to town on The Walking Dead, plus new Supergirl, Westworld and Arrow

Welcome to TV This Week! Your one-stop shop for all the cool sci-fi and fantasy stuff you should be watching over the next seven days!

This season’s hit cable dramas are really hitting their strides, and we have new episodes of The Walking Dead and Westworld to reward us this weekend. But there’s a lot to see before we get there.

With the election hitting on Tuesday night, The CW’s Flash is taking the week off — but we’ll still have new episodes from Supergirl, Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow to enjoy. There’s also new Lucifer, Supernatural and a boatload of fresh Syfy shows (led by the hit scare-fest Channel Zero: Candle Cove). If you're looking for something a bit more on the quirky side, try Dirk Gently or People of Earth. You won't be disappointed.

Check out all our recommendations below and set your DVR accordingly:
