Basketball fans can bask in March Madness, but what’s out there for the rest of us? Here’s a look at some highlights. SUNDAY When we last left “The Walking Dead” (9 p.m., AMC), Andrea was facing an uncertain future and Rick was weighing a deal to turn Michonne over to the Governor.

Watch this (week of Nov. 11)

It’s not quite mid-season, all those bright and shiny new shows have debuted, some of your old favorites are getting ready to take a holiday break, and the election is finally over. So… what to watch now? This week, I’ve decided to take a look at a few shows that aren’t on the major networks.

Watch this (week of Oct. 14)

This was the week “Community” was supposed to return. NBC, however, decided to (once again) put it on the shelf, announcing it won’t return on Oct. 19 as planned.

For me, this week is more about counting down… only seven days until the premiere of “Game of Thrones” on HBO. I’ll be watching the usual new episodes of “New Girl,” “Community,” etc… But if you want something a little different: SUNDAY The critically acclaimed “Mad Men” returns to AMC tonight with a two-hour season premiere. (Actually, watch your DVRs on this one, since the debut is listed as being 128 minutes long.) This is one of those shows I… Read More »

What started strong, and what flopped?

By Heather Chavez WHAT I’M WATCHING THIS WEEK: Connie Britton and Dylan McDermott star in “American Horror Story,” premiering Wednesday on FX. Though Brad Falchuk and Ryan Murphy created “Glee,” don’t expect show tunes and slushies in the hallway. Britton and McDermott play a married couple who move with their daughter into a house with a dark history. I suspect this violent show will be one viewers either love or hate. As a huge fan of Britton and the risk-taking… Read More »
