As Hannibal fans this weekend (and billions of others before them) can attest, too long has the antiquated Nielsen ratings system given an incomplete picture of a show’s viewership, swaying networks to and fro of cancellation. We may finally have some progress however, as Nielsen will begin taking into account streaming data from the likes of Hulu, Netflix and beyond.

Hannibal may yet enjoy his last meal later on tonight with the airing of Season 3 finale “The Wrath of the Lamb” (or on Saturday for American viewers), and we may have a taste of the fourth season. Our beloved cannibal appears to be on the lam (heh) once more in a new trailer for the Season 3 finale.

‘Hannibal’ Gets Deliciously Vicious in ‘The Number of the Beast Is 666’

God, the devil, the dragon and the lamb — in Hannibal’s eyes they are not at all dissimilar, as most things remain slippery in his mind palace. Everything tends to bleed and blur together in his orbit, as evoked in the persistent motif of layering one character’s face over Hannibal’s own. Divided by the glass partition of his cell, it’s easier to blend Jack or Will or Alana’s faces with Hannibal’s, as they stare at each other from either side of the glass and Hannibal delivers his weekly sermons on the currency of evil.

The summer of 2015 has afforded far too many absurd and newsworthy sagas for SNL to sit out, and Season 41 is already exploding off the bench. Not only will Miley Cyrus host the October premiere, but SNL will follow up with Amy Schumer, and a momentous return for alumni Tracy Morgan.

I’ve stayed quiet about Hannibal since the Red Dragon arc began — this half of the season has been slowly simmering and less surreally theatric than the first half. It’s not that it hasn’t been interesting, but there’s been less meat on its bones to chew over. Not so with “…And the Beast From the Sea,” in which Hannibal Lecter essentially proves why you should never break up with him.

Heroes Reborn has plenty of backstory to fill in between the four-year gap of Heroes’ fourth season finale and our October premiere, but already one of the series’ biggest characters has fallen. Only a few past cast members will reprise their roles for Heroes Reborn, but which hero surprisingly bit the big one in the interim?

It seems NBC’s unusual attempt to get back into the comic business after Constantine was just the tip of the iceberg, and the latest will literally have you seeing red. Calling all retired geriatric super-spies: Red is officially coming to TV with a new hourlong drama from the star-studded films’ creators.

Five different DC dramas will air on the major networks by early 2016, another even resurrected for a surprise crossover, and now the comic company has its eye on a new angle. NBC has put into development Powerless, a — and we’re in no way joking here — workplace comedy set amid the backdrop of DC superheroes and their destructive battles.

The recent casting of Hannibal star Hugh Dancy in a new Hulu drama put yet another nail in the coffin of Bryan Fuller’s magnum opus, though we still have at least two more installments before the Red Dragon arc comes to an end. See for yourself, as Dr. Lecter finally get his iconic mask in the first photos of August 22 (series?) finale “The Wrath of the Lamb!”

We’ll admit that the first trailer for NBC’s Heroes Reborn made the series seem less laughable than a Heroes revival in principle alone, but the network has even more confidence in its superhero drama’s second round. Not only has the September premiere doubled in size, bumping The Blacklist, but we may yet get a second season.
