The Walking Dead (AMC, Sunday 9 p.m.) — SEASON FOUR PREMIERE. The premiere episode is called “30 Days Without an Accident,” and you don’t title an episode that unless the 31st day is a doozy. Before the premiere, get caught up and take a look at what we can expect from the season.
The Talking Dead (AMC, Sunday 10 p.m.) — You know, I like Chris Hardwick on the Nerdist podcast for the same reasons that I can’t stand him on these conversation shows: He’s so earnest and uncritical, that he allows his guests to relax and be their amusing selves, which is great when you’re talking to Tom Hanks. But when you’re talking about The Walking Dead, it’s annoying when you can’t bring up an inconsistency or a lapse in logic. That said, I would’ve loved to see him do a Talking Dexter show, just to see if he could kiss that show’s ass with a straight face.
Saturday Night Live (NBC, Saturday 11:30) — Bruce Willis hosts the show this week, but if the promos are any indication, Cecily Strong will steal it.
Boardwalk Empire (HBO, Sunday 9 p.m.) — After the best episode of the season so far, I can’t wait to see how they follow it up. I hope there’s a revenge killing involved, and I hope that Richard Harrow is hired to do it.
Homeland (Showtime, Sunday 9 p.m.) — Brody is back, which will hopefully spare us from more of television’s worst character right now.
Masters of Sex (Showtime, Sunday 10 p.m.) — The best thing on TV right this fall. Find it. Watch it. Love it.
Sunday Night Football (NBC, Sunday 8:20 p.m.) — The Washington Racist Names vs. the Dallas Cowboys. I’d suggest that Tony Romo will find a way to throw a heartbreaking fourth quarter interception to give the game to Washington, but not even Romo can fritter away a 30 point lead in the fourth quarter.
American League Championship Series (Fox, Sunday 8 p.m.) — Detroit vs. Boston. I mention this only so Bob’s Burgers fans can brace themselves for the disappointment of not having a new episode this week.
