'The Walking Dead'

AMC, Sundays Starting October 14th at 9 p.m.

Don't worry – there will be vomit. The Walking Dead remains the most gruesomely stomach-churning zombie show in the history of basic cable, unless you count the Kardashians. It's also the most watched; the second season scored blockbuster ratings. So it's not like they're going to start playing nice now – blood, guts and brains sweet brains will remain the currency of the zombie/human war economy. The new season gets a boost from two pivotal characters who loom large in the original comic books: the hooded female warrior Michonne, who memorably rescued Andrea in the second-season finale, and the malevolent Governor.
