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.

The Americans: Tuesday, March 7, at 10 p.m. on FX
With Russia back in the headlines in a big way, there’s no better time to relive the final years of the (first?) Cold War with the return of FX’s ’80s spy serial. Expect this penultimate season to deliver more than a few body blows to Americanized Soviet spies Philip and Elizabeth Jennings.

Survivor: Wednesday, March 8, at 8 p.m. on CBS
17 years, 34 seasons, 500 episodes … one more survivor. The grandfather of all contemporary reality shows airs its latest iteration, which features an all-star cast of “game-changers” from the show’s lengthy history.

Nashville: Thursday, March 9, at 9 p.m. on CMT
The first half of Nashville‘s fifth season draws to a close, with Rayna James’s loved ones still reeling from her death. Look for some storylines to be wrapped up, as well as a tease of what a post-Rayna Nashville will look like when the series returns.

Love: Friday, March 10, on Netflix
Season 2 of the Judd Apatow-produced comedy picks up right where the first year left off, with central lovers Gus and Mickey (Paul Rust and Gillian Jacobs) locking lips despite the serious emotional turbulence they’ve been through. Don’t look for things to stabilize anytime soon, as new professional opportunities and personal misunderstandings take a serious toll on their off-again, on-again relationship.

Tangled: Before Ever After: Friday, March 10, at 8 p.m. on Disney
Disney’s popular retelling of the Rapunzel story gets a TV spinoff, with original stars Mandy Moore and Zachary Levi returning to provide the speaking and singing voices of the long-haired princess and her roguish BF, Flynn Rider, aka Eugene Fitzherbert.
