You'd think Easter weekend might be a quiet time for TV. You'd be wrong. Easter Sunday turns out to be one of the most overstuffed nights since February's sweeps-stakes, capped by a face-off between the season finale of cable's hottest horror show and the premiere of pay cable's most deluxe epic fantasy.
AMC did not make the third-season finish of The Walking Dead (Sunday, 9/8c) available for preview, but we're already fearing the worst as the climactic showdown approaches between the Governor's troops and TV's most heroic prison gang, while failed peacekeeper Andrea swelters in the torture dungeon back in Woodbury. It's nothing new to wonder who'll live or die in this bleak post-apocalypse. But until this riveting and wrenching season, we were mostly worried about the zombie "walkers," who've taken a back seat lately to the human monsters battling for power and revenge.
Crows, mummers, bastards — who can keep up with everything (and everyone) in the fantastical land of Westeros? It's hard to imagine that when Game of Thronesreturns for its third season Sunday at 9/8c on HBO, viewers will be introduced to even more mythology, characters and betrayals.

Get ready for more blood, sweat and fears. Turns out, the brutal first two seasons of HBO's Game of Thrones were just a warm-up. The beheading of Ned Stark? Like stretching your jousting arm. The high-body-count Battle of Blackwater Bay that nearly killed Tyrion Lannister? A quick jog around the tourney grounds.

"There's almost another full episode's worth of...
You can thank the premature death of Luck for the quick renewals — and returns of Girls and Enlightened. (Both will return in January 2013.) "When we made the decision to pull the plug on Luck while they were in production on the second season, we did not have a backup plan," Michael Lombardo, HBO's president of programming, told reporters at Television Critics Association fall TV previews on Wednesday. "We have new shows coming up next year, but we did not have anything ready for that period." Both series will air their 10-episode second seasons with originals running through March.
HBO also came loaded with plenty of other announcements, including a film starring Larry David, a Rolling Stones documentary and the future of True Blood and Game of Thrones. Check it out:
