It's no surprise that self-proclaimed TV nerd Chris Hardwick says The Walking Dead is his favorite show right now.
"Yes, Walking Dead [is] one of my favorite shows," Harwick says. "I host a show after it [Talking Dead] and I know you're probably like, 'You're just saying that because you host a show after that!' Maybe, or maybe not, [but] I wouldn't have hosted that show if Walking Dead wasn't one of my favorites."

Will Rick (Andrew Lincoln) be able to gather his wits about him and lead the group safely through the impending battle? Or will his questionable sanity ultimately be their downfall?
It's a good time to be Seth MacFarlane, with a hit movie (Ted) under his belt, a gig as Oscar host in his future, and a mini-empire on the Fox network, whose Sunday "Animation Domination" lineup is overrun with his shows, most notably and memorably Family Guy. Not many shows that got canceled early in its run (after several seasons of incredibly incompetent scheduling), only to be resurrected on the strength of DVD sales and a cult cable following, manage to live on to mark a 200th-episode milestone.
