Synopses come from CBS Press Express (Supergirl), CTV Television (Arrow, The Flash, Gotham, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) and The CW Press (iZombie).

Due to CTV Television discontinuing synopses for its non-original programming by January 2016, synopses for Arrow, The Flash, iZombie and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow come from The CW Press after December 2015. Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Marvel’s Agent Carter synopses come from Disney ABC Press after December 2015. Gotham and Lucifer synopses come from FoxFlash after December 2015.
