This week on television, there's a full hour of Futurama, including one episode where the Planet Express crew star in a nature documentary. Summer Glau is once again kicking ass and building cool robots. Breaking Bad features Walt making a really questionable decision.


But the big news on TV this week is probably return of a certain eccentric time traveler from another planet. Full details, including tons of vids, below!


Adventure Time (7:30 PM, Cartoon Network):
The insanity just doesn't stop. This time, in "You Made Me":

When a creepy sleep-peeping Lemongrab upsets Princess Bubblegum with his creepy ways, Finn and Jake need to tend to some issues in the Outer Realm.

Here's a clip! Followed, as usual, by Regular Show and Annoying Orange.

Alphas (8 PM, Syfy):
It's "Alphaville!" In which our heroes discover they're big in Japan? Or maybe they hang out with Summer Glau again.

Warehouse 13 (9 PM, Syfy):
Lindsay Wagner is back as Artie's slow-boil love interest, Dr. Vanessa Calder. Plus: "An artifact from a previous case, Lewis Carroll's mirror, turns up missing from storage and the team set out to recover it. The murderous spirit of Alice Liddell escapes from the mirror."

Grimm (10 PM, NBC):
The creepiest man on television, Supernatural's Lucifer, is coming to Grimm!

NICK AND HANK FIND THEMSELVES IN THE MIDDLE OF A DISTURBING FAMILY REUNION WHEN HANK'S OLD FRIEND SEEKS HIS HELP TO FIND HIS MISSING DAUGHTER — MADDIE HASSON, JOHN PYPER-FERGUSON AND MARK PELLEGRINO GUEST-STAR - As Hank (Russell Hornsby) continues to seek help to cope with the inexplicable siting he had, an old friend, Jarold Kempfer (guest star Mark Pellegrino), needs his help when his daughter (guest star Maddie Hasson) goes missing. Nick's (David Giuntoli) expertise as a Grimm comes in to play as he investigates the disturbing motives linked to the disappearance.


There's basically nothing on tonight, due to some kind of political convention thing. Sorry about that!

Transformers Prime (7 PM, The Hub):
Cliffjumper is back! And Shockwave is making his debut in the series. According to Seibertron, the somewhat garbled-sounding synopsis of this episode goes:

Doctor Who (9 PM, BBC America):
How long has it been since a new Doctor Who episode? An unimaginably long time. Showrunner Steven Moffat is promising this will be the crackerjack episode that will remind you why the Daleks are so scary. Here's what to expect from "Asylum of the Daleks":

Kidnapped by his oldest foe, the Doctor is forced on an impossible mission - to a place even the Daleks are too terrified to enter... the Asylum. A planetary prison confining the most terrifying and insane of their kind, the Doctor and the Ponds must find an escape route. But with Amy and Rory's relationship in meltdown, and an army of mad Daleks closing in, it is up to the Doctor to save their lives, as well as the Pond's marriage.


Also on TV tonight: Another new episode of Saving Hope, in its new time slot of 9 PM Saturdays.

Man, I am so over the Ponds. Can they please go away, now?
