Weekend TV: Simpsons' 25th Treehouse of Horror, Foo Fighters' Sonic Highways, Finales of Knick and Manhattan

The Simpsons

Some milestones can't help but make a longtime TV viewer feel a bit long in the tooth. Such is the case this Sunday, as Fox's The Simpsons marks a full quarter-century of spooky satire with its 25th annual "Treehouse of Horror" Halloween trilogy (8/7c), which strikes a nostalgic chord from its opening fanfare, echoing the classic (and still-missed) theme from Johnny Carson's Tonight Show — with a macabre twist, naturally.

Manhattan

WGN America's critically acclaimed drama Manhattan, about the birth of the atomic bomb, presumably ends its freshman season this Sunday with at least a metaphorical bang.

WGN America Renews Manhattan For Season 2

Manhattan

Explosive news from WGN America: The cable network has just renewed Manhattan, its dramatic chronicle of the atomic bomb's birth, for a second season.

"Manhattan represents the kind of high-quality original series we aim to deliver at WGN America," says Matt Cherniss, president and general manager of WGN America and Tribune Studios.

Manhattan joins Salem as WGN America's second original series to score a renewal this year. Manhattan has struggled to find a wide audience, but earned a great deal of critical acclaim, including from TV Guide Magazine's Matt Roush, who calls the show a "surprise obsession."

Is WGN America's Manhattan a Blast? 4 Reasons to Watch the Atomic Drama

Manhattan

Up and atom! It's time to discuss WGN America's latest original series Manhattan. Set in 1943, Manhattan follows a sequestered group of physicists racing to develop the first atomic bombs during World War II. Right now, you're probably worried there isn't room on your DVR for another slow-paced historical drama, but don't let that cloud your judgment. Manhattan easily earns a series pass for the way it blends scientific and political suspense with the project's emotional fallout on the scientists and their nuclear families.

Weekend Review: I'll Take Manhattan

Manhattan

Remember when nostalgia used to signify a comforting escape into the past? It hasn't been the same since Mad Men took us beneath the surface glamour to expose the grim consequences of chasing and selling the American dream. WGN America's bold new period drama Manhattan (Sunday, 9/8c) goes even further, eschewing the romantic veneer altogether in a gritty story of scientific mavericks operating in extreme circumstances. Looking back at a bygone time (World War II) with a jaundiced eye, the ambitious Manhattan is far more serious in intent than the channel's more recent effort at historical-fiction original programming, the lurid Salem.

The Good Wife's Ben Rappaport on Carey's "Brotherly" Bond with Cary and Winning Over Alicia

The Good Wife

Is Lockhart/Gardner big enough for two Carys?

They may share the same name, but there was no confusing Cary Agos (Matt Czuchry) with Lockhart/Gardner fourth year Carey Zepps in the season premiere of The Good Wife. In his first appearance on the show, Carey-with-an-e not only gave Alicia (Julianna Margulies) a hard time about her history with Will, but also almost (accidentally) blew Florrick, Agos & Associates' cover with David Lee.

"Sometimes you got to start things with a bang," Ben Rappaport tells TVGuide.com. "If you're going to introduce someone new, you got... read more
