I’m so conflicted about this show’s seventh season. Yes, the season opener – with Negan and his baseball bat – was one of the most brutal things I have ever seen on television, but I keep coming back for the characters and their humanity. The gruesome zombies and zombie attacks are almost beside the point. I want to see Rick Grimes, Michonne & Co. survive (and prevail) in this crazy, mixed-up world. The second half of season seven premieres Sunday, Feb. 12, at 9 p.m. on AMC.

Also: The Grammy Awards air live at 5 p.m. on CBS (hosted by James Corden), “The Missing” is back for season two on Starz, “Last Week Tonight with John Oliver” and “Girls” return to HBO, and for those who can’t wait for the Oscar ceremony (Feb. 26 on ABC), check out The British Academy of Film Awards at 8 p.m. on BBC America.

1tvhalloween_tzrLess is more in John Carpenter’s original, and back in 1978 this low-budget, horror/thriller came out of nowhere to scare the wits out of moviegoers (the first time I saw it, I was a high-schooler cowering in my seat at Seattle’s wonderful Cinerama). The story of Michael Myers returning home to terrorize several baby-sitters on All Hallows Eve launched Jamie Lee Curtis’ movie career and spawned way too many sequels, imitators and remakes, but remains a scary good time. 10 p.m. Monday, Oct. 31, on AMC.

1tvwalkingdeadIs it Glenn? Maggie? Abraham?, or — heaven help us — Daryl? This zombie drama’s legions of fans have been waiting, and speculating, for six months as to which of the popular characters will meet their end tonight at the hands of Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan). Star Andrew Lincoln said on a recent special that you probably shouldn’t watch the premiere alone. Season premiere, 9 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 23, on AMC.

fear-the-walking-dead-season-2b-madison-dickens-strand-domingo-935-1It took awhile for this “Walking Dead” spinoff to find its bearings, but as the show begins the second half of its second season, it seems to be finding its own pace and rhythm. The main group of human survivors (including Kim Dickens, Cliff Curtis, Ruben Blades and Colman Domingo) have escaped a conflagration and are now split up and headed in different directions. Midseason premiere, 9 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 21, on AMC.

PRE_100_LJ_0527_0707-RTDominic Cooper stars in this new series based on a cult comic-book series. He plays Jesse Custer, a West Texas preacher with an unusual power. You should be able to decide if you’re in for this particular ride after the opening scene, when a character explodes in front of his congregation. Series premiere, 10 p.m. Sunday, May 22, on AMC.

Night-ManagerThis new six-part miniseries looks irresistible. The story is based on John le Carré’s spy novel and follows a hotel manager (Tom Hiddleston), who is recruited by a British intelligence officer (Olivia Colman) to bring down an international arms dealer (Hugh Laurie). Series premiere, 10 p.m. Tuesday, April 19, on AMC.

fear-the-walking-dead-season-2-castCan zombies swim? That was the big question when this “Walking Dead” spinoff began its second season last week as the survivors boarded a yacht to escape the zombie hordes. The answer is not really (but they can kind of float and lurch, but are no match for a boat propeller). The new series is not yet as involving as its predecessor, but the cast is strong — especially Kim Dickens, Cliff Curtis and Ruben Blades — and the new locations keep things from becoming stale. 9 p.m. Sunday, April 17, on AMC.
