Just try telling Carrie Watts that you can't go home again. This elderly Texan, determined to make her way back to a town that time and everyone but she has forgot, bristles with restless gumption, fueled by an indomitable spirit that erupts in hymns she can't stop humming — or singing, as in a memorable scene set in a deserted bus station after midnight.
On Broadway, where Cicely Tyson won a Tony Award last year for her luminous performance as Carrie in a revival of The Trip to Bountiful, audiences often joined in as she sang "Blessed Assurance" in the play's rapturous high point. And for a moment, in Lifetime's languid movie adaptation (Saturday, 8/7c), you might find your own living room transformed into a choir loft.
Neil deGrasse Tyson
Neil deGrasse Tyson is about to rock your world. Then he'll rock a few billion more worlds beyond that. The famed astrophysicist is host of Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey, a 13-week Fox docuseries about the vast magnificence of our universe and an eye-popping, state-of-the-art successor to Carl Sagan's great '80s series, Cosmos: A Personal Voyage.

Laurence Fishburne, Mads Mikkelsen
"I never feel guilty eating anything," purrs Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen) as he serves up another portion of some erotically charged exotic delicacy. NBC's Hannibal (Friday, 10/9c), in its second season, is a feast of macabre freakishness, going beyond the realm of guilty pleasure in a sustained nightmare of horrific yet elegantly hypnotic design.

Question: Where do you stand on the decision of Family Guy's writers to kill off Brian Griffin? When the Nov. 24 episode ended without him coming back to life, it hit me and many, many other viewers like a ton of bricks. I'd like to believe this isn't permanent, like the eventual retirement of Mrs. Krabappel ...
A lot of people weren't laughing at Sunday's Family Guy, which shockingly killed off the family's beloved dog Brian.
