With so much to watch on TV, it can be difficult to plan ahead. But we’re here to help! Here are the five shows you won’t want to miss this week.

Dancing With the Stars: Monday, Sept. 12, at 8 p.m. on ABC
The 23rd season of ABC’s enduring reality hit features a number of celebrity hoofers, from Amber Rose to Vanilla Ice. But let’s face it … all eyes will be on Olympian/bathroom brawler Ryan Lochte as he begins his Great Apology Tour with a little two-step.

Blindspot: Wednesday, Sept. 14, at 10 p.m. on NBC
One of the biggest hits of the 2015-2016 TV season enjoys a turbo-charged launch into its second year. Don’t mention the words “sophomore slump” around Jane Doe. She’ll punch you out.

High Maintenance: Friday, Sept. 16, at 11 p.m. on HBO
The pot-themed Web series goes legit, joining HBO’s late-night lineup with freshly rolled episodes.

The Beatles: Eight Days a Week: Saturday, Sept. 17, on Hulu
To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Fab Four’s final live concert (not counting this impromptu rooftop jam session in ‘69), Ron Howard revisits their four-year stint on the road from 1962 to 1966, when they left a trail of screaming girls and boys in their wake.

The 68th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards: Sunday, Sept. 18, at 8 p.m. on ABC
Never mind that “It’s an honor just to be nominated” jazz. In the game of Emmys, you win … or you get nominated again next year. Let’s see if returning champ Game of Thrones can fend off freshman challenger The Americans.
