Watch this: Now that the Winter Olympics are over, the rest of the broadcast networks return with new episodes for fan favorites like This Is UsYoung SheldonGrey’s Anatomy, and more. Meanwhile, over in the streaming space, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel drops episodes three and four, while Netflix unveils their big budget historical drama, Vikings: Valhalla.

But if you have yet to catch up on Inventing Anna, now is your time to do it. Because believe it or not, we’re in a bit of a quiet period before plenty of new releases in March.

With that said, here’s everything to watch the week of February 20, and I’ll see you back here next Sunday when awards season officially kicks off with the Screen Actors Guild Awards.

Monday, February 21

The Bachelor (ABC): Just when the drama with Shanae is over (well, at least until Women Tell All), now we have Mara vs. Sarah. Also, word of advice to Mara: 32 is young, too. I have no reason to be this invested, and yet here I am. 8/7 p.m. C.T. and streaming the next day on Hulu

The Endgame (NBC): If you’re already mourning the loss of Killing Eve when it wraps up its run later this spring, then give The Endgame a shot. The heist drama features a similar cat and mouse game between Elena Federova (Gotham‘s Morena Baccarin), a recently captured international arms dealer and criminal mastermind, and Val Turner (First Wives Club‘s Ryan Michelle Bathé), an FBI agent who will stop at nothing to trap Federova. Also, why do TV villains get the coolest names (Villanelle, Federova—just saying)? 10/9 p.m. C.T.

Tuesday, February 22

This Is Us (NBC): As of tonight, we are a third of our way through the final season, and it’s just another reminder to savor each episode. “Our Little Island Girl: Part Two” focuses on Beth (Susan Kelechi Watson) as she prepares her students for their first big dance recital and confronts a familiar face from her past. Kevin and Kate also have a very powerful storyline, in what is a terrific episode penned by Kelechi Watson and writer Eboni Freeman. 9/8 p.m. C.T. and streaming on Hulu the next day

Jeopardy! National College Championship Season Finale (ABC): After two weeks of competition, a winner is crowned tonight. 8/7 p.m. C.T.

Abbott Elementary (ABC): A welcome success story in broadcast television, Abbott Elementary keeps increasing in viewership each week. (Read what creator and star Quinta Brunson has to say about that in this great Vanity Fair profile.) Per ABC, in tonight’s episode, titled “Step Class,” Janine is thrilled when Ava asks to help her teach the after-school step class, but the two don’t see eye to eye on how to run the program. Later, when Barbara, Melissa and Jacob plan an “eat-off” to decide who makes the best pizza in Philadelphia, Gregory is forced to reveal a secret. 9/8 p.m. C.T.

Wednesday, February 23

The Wonder Years (ABC): I’ll be honest, after spending an hour chatting with The Wonder Year‘s costume designer, Ceci, I have more respect than ever for what the icon is bringing to life on our screens each week. And knowing that she wakes up at 2:30 A.M. every day for fittings and last looks, I say you owe it to her to tune in. In this week’s episode, titled “Country Dean,” the Williams family spends spring break with Lillian’s parents in the countryside, where Dean lies to his cousins about city life in Montgomery in order to impress them. 8:30/7:30 p.m. C.T.

Young Sheldon (CBS): Ming-Na Wen guest stars as Dr. Lee, a new scientist in the lab, and naturally, Sheldon doesn’t see eye-to-eye with her. Young Sheldon co-creator and EP Steve Molaro tells Glamour that “not only are we thrilled to have the amazing Ming-Na join our universe, but this episode has one of the most fun cold opens we have ever shot.” If that’s not the best tease, I don’t know what is. Meanwhile, Mary is given a lotto ticket, but I have a feeling that even if she wins big, that money is going right to Sheldon’s education and the church. 8/7 p.m. C.T. on CBS, and available to stream live and on demand on Paramount+.

United States of Al (CBS): The comedy series about a Marine combat veteran and his Afghani interpreter continues to dive into tough conversations about life post-war, and this week is no different when Riley finally realizes how hard it was on Vanessa to be home while he was deployed. 8:31/7:31 p.m. C.T. and available to stream life and on demand on Paramount+.

Ghosts (CBS): Like Abbott ElementaryGhosts continues to defy expectations by rising in the ratings each week. In tonight’s episode, appropriately titled “Ghostwriter,” Sasappis offers to help Sam complete the B&B website so they can start taking reservations, but that doesn’t quite go according to plan. Simultaneously, Pete bonds with Jay over basketball until Jay makes a new living friend, and Flower attempts to be Pete’s new basketball buddy. 9:01/8:01 p.m. C.T. and available to stream live and on demand on Paramount+.

Station 19 and Grey’s Anatomy cross-over event (ABC): A new chief starts at Station 19, while the crew responds to a young girl seeking help and a call about an SUV flown over a cliff. Over at Grey’s, the good docs grapple with the aftermath that involved some of their own, while Meredith works to save Dr. Hamilton’s life. On the relationship front, Link confronts Amelia after witnessing her move on with someone new. 8/7 p.m. C.T., two-hour event

Law & Order (NBC): After being abruptly canceled in 2010, the OG Law & Order is back with Sam Waterston and Anthony Anderson reprising their roles, along with Jeffrey Donovan, Camryn Manheim, Hugh Dancy and Odelya Halevi. Welcome back! 8/7 p.m. C.T.

Friday, February 25

Blue Bloods (CBS): Our favorite baseball player turned housekeeper (that’s a Who’s the Boss? reference for anyone not old enough to remember the iconic ’80s sitcom) Tony Danza guest stars as police lieutenant Raymond Moretti. Meanwhile, Erin (Bridget Moynahan) and Anthony (Steve Schirripa) team up with Erin’s nephew, officer Joe Hill (Will Hochman), to course-correct a trial after Joe becomes aware of witness tampering. 10/9 p.m. C.T. and available to stream live and on demand on Paramount+.

Cyrano (theaters everywhere): In this re-imagining of Cyrano—the timeless tale of a heartbreaking love triangle—Peter Dinklage plays Cyrano de Bergerac opposite Haley Bennett as Roxanne. The Joe Wright-directed musical made the festival rounds last fall, in which Vanity Fair praised Dinklage’s “deft comedic timing and dramatic skill.”

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, episodes three and four (Prime Video): Has there ever been a better breakdown scene over milk? Granted, it wasn’t really about the milk in the fourth season’s second episode, but it was just reason 3,210,603 why Rachel Brosnahan continues to impress, and why our lives are so much better now that Midge is back. What’s in store for her next? A future as a showgirl? And will Joel and Mei finally go public with their romance? Episodes three and four drop tonight. Streaming.

Saturday, February 26

Welcome to Mama’s (Hallmark Channel): A Hallmark movie that takes place in an Italian restaurant with lots of pasta and a gorgeous chef? Count me in. Melanie Scrofano, Daniel di Tomasso and Lorraine Bracco star. 8/7 p.m. C.T.
