A mere two nights after The Walking Dead finale shattered cable ratings records, and more than a few nerves, with its zombie shooting gallery at Hershel's now-abandoned farm, two more dynamic series signed off for the season Tuesday night — hopefully not for good (though one seems a likely goner) — giving us some fun and tense times. Sometimes both at once.
Bent, David Walton and Amanda Peet
Blink and you might miss Bent, NBC's new romantic comedy, which premieres Wednesday at 9/8c. Although the series will only be on for three weeks of back-to-back new episodes, Bent actually deserves a closer look. The comedy, from Scrubs writer Tad Quill, follows a newly divorced, high-strung single mother (Amanda Peet) and the lackadaisical ladies' man she hires to re-do her kitchen (David Walton).
So what makes this half-hour comedy worth the investment? Here are five reasons to check out Bent:

NBC Entertainment chief Angela Bromstad recently told BusinessWeek that the network plans to order a 21st season of the legal drama, making it the longest-running prime-time drama in TV history.
"I'm a Law & Order junkie," Bromstad said. "I wouldn't want to be responsible for not having Law & Order break the record."
While Bromstad plans to honor the old, she's also keenly focused on the new. Bromstad said NBC will produce 18 pilots this spring, the most since 2003 and a marked increase over last year's 11...
