The Walking Dead (AMC; Sunday, 9 p.m.) – Half-season premiere. In a revealing interview with New York, showrunner Glenn Mazarra said he feels that the series “has been a little insular, a little incestuous, that it’s been a very small cast of characters on just a farm that appears to be very safe. I want to widen it. All of a sudden the outside world starts encroaching on our farm.” THANK GOD. It sounds like something is finally going to happen in the next six episodes, which I never thought I’d have to worry about in a zombie TV show. (Banner via)
Grimm (NBC; Friday, 9 p.m.) – It’s almost Valentine’s Day, so “Nick and Hank track a deadly heartbreaker.” I guarantee someone’s heart will literally break. Then we’ll rewind to see the exact second it happens.
The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret (IFC; Friday, 10:30 p.m.) – Series finale. Have you ever liked a comedy but rarely laughed while watching it? That’s how I feel about “Increasingly Poor Decisions”; it’s just fun seeing how convoluted the plot can be (in a good way), and I have no idea how David Cross plans to wrap up every loose end in only 30 minutes.
SNL (NBC; Saturday, 11:30 p.m.) – Some people think it’ll be:
While others think it’ll be:
Either way, people will have OPINIONS come Monday. More Preview below.
The 54th Annual Grammy Awards (CBS; Sunday, 8 p.m.) – Previous Album of the Year award winners include: River: The Joni Letters by Herbie Hancock (over Amy Winehouse and Kanye), Two Against Nature by Steely Dan (over Kid A), Falling into You by Celine Dion (over Smashing Pumpkins and Beck), and Toto IV by Toto (over everything else released that year). I know it’s trite and obvious, but: THE GRAMMYS ARE AWFUL. /cranky Hüsker Dü never won one
Worst Cooks in America (Food; Sunday, 9 p.m.) – Jeez. How many more shows does Guy Fieri need?
Comic Book Men (AMC, Sunday, 10 p.m.) – Series premiere, a reality show about a comic book store in New Jersey owned by Kevin Smith. I recently rewatched Chasing Amy (most ‘90s ‘90s movie ever), and remembered that the only good scenes in it are when someone’s talking about Star Wars. “They tryin’ to tell us that deep inside we all wants to be white!” “Well, isn’t that true?”
Have a good weekend, everyone.
