The Walking Dead
If it's the end of the world as we know it, TV feels fine. Led by shows including AMC's The Walking Dead, TNT's Falling Skies and NBC's Revolution, postapocalyptic TV is blowing up — and a lot more of it is on the way.

Starring Justin Theroux, Liv Tyler, Christopher Eccleston and Amy Brenneman, The Leftovers picks up three years after the big departure and follows the lives of those struggling to get by. With the time jump, Lindelof hopes...

Just like the youthful demo it is targeting, The CW is still growing.
"The parent companies have been very happy with how The CW has performed," network president Mark Pedowitz said at the Television Critics Association's fall previews on Tuesday. He added that online viewership has grown by 20 percent, and the on-air ratings and household numbers continue to increase.
