What to Watch Sunday: Walking Dead Returns, The Good Wife Faces a Scandal and More

On TV this Sunday: Say ZOMG (in this case, “Zombies – Oh My God!)  for The Walking Dead‘s Season 3 premiere, a Soprano doles out justice on The Good Wife, Dexter states his case and the National League Championship Series gets underway. As a supplement to TVLine’s original features (linked within), here are 10 programs to keep on your radar tonight.

8 pm National League Championship Series, Game 1 (Fox) | Tonight’s game between the Cardinals and Giants kicks off a best-of-seven series, the ultimate winner of which will represent the Senior Circuit in the World Series.

9 pm The Walking Dead (AMC) | Season 3 premiere: Rick finds a potentially safe haven for the survivors, but as these photos indicate, it might not be the Shangri-La it first appears. Also, Lori’s pregnancy is a constant reminder that change is coming. (See what the cast told TVLine about the new season and watch a video sneak preview of what’s ahead!)

9 pm Revenge (ABC) | Emily’s got her hands full with getting back into the Graysons’ lives and messing with keeping tabs on mom-to-be Amanda. So what’s she going to do about Aiden sticking around? (Check out photos featuring our own Meg Masters.)

  7. Liam says:

    Sunday is the best night for tv now: The Good Wife, Revenge, The Walking Dead, (back from the dead) Dexter, Homeland. All in my opinion the best series in their respective categories (I know they are all dramas but soap, guilty pleasure, action, etc.)

    And this week marks the beginning of AHS: Asylum. My tv week couldn’t be better!

  8. Sara says:

    Revenge, Good Wife, Amazing Race, Downton Abbey & most importantly HOMELAND after that awesome episode last week, can’t wait!!

  17. shuayb says:

    What happened to Once and 666 Park Avenue? Seriously?

    • Alan says:

      they are featuring different things this week, just like they do every week. they cant just put the same shows up every week, they would be accused of bias

    • G says:

      They highlight few different shows each week. But there are separate article links for both of Once and 666 in blue. When they have an entire article for a show, they link it instead of listing it.

  18. Alan says:

    man 9pm is loaded tonight, somebody is going to lose ratings because of this

  19. iMember says:
