The Amazing Race
Amazing Race 17
The six remaining teams fly from Russia to Oman, where several surprises await them. But perhaps the biggest shock happens to Stephanie. During the leg, her boyfriend Chad proposes to her. As for the race itself, the pairs dangle from a rock mountain and try to avoid deadly mistakes like the one that proved "fatal" to father-son team Michael and Kevin Wu last week when they failed to correctly read a clue. — Tim Holland

The guest stars and events that the networks have planned for the second week of November sweeps:
Sunday, Nov. 7
The Simpsons (FOX)
Lisa Simpson has a crush on the sparkly new teen vampire in town (Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe); during Marge and Homer's second honeymoon at sea, they meet a castaway who sounds an awful lot like Dr. Gregory House (Hugh Laurie).
We know that Paul Young has been keeping secrets from Beth, and that Beth hasn't been entirely open with Paul. Their marital difficulties were Topic A last week, and there'll be more developments tonight. Meanwhile, Lynette's looking for a new nanny and Susan's looking for a new job. Expect a convergence. But Lynette gets a job offer as well — from old friend Renee. Here's a flash — a hot one — from the suddenly menopausal Bree. And is Carlos gay? Honestly, that's one of the story lines: Gaby's worried that he and Bob might become an item. — Paul Droesch
Read on for previews of Hannah Montana Forever, Undercover Boss, Sunday Night Football, The Simpsons, Great Migrations and Eastbound & Down.
The Walking Dead
The title characters, flesh-eating zombies, stalk the living (human and animal) in this chilling new series. It's a gory, ghoulish goulash of horror, action-adventure and drama, with a sprinkling of macabre humor. Andrew Lincoln stars as sheriff's deputy Rick Grimes, who awakens from a coma into a nightmarish, apocalyptic world overrun with these rapacious, stumbling, staggering "walkers." They are quite the scary bunch. Rick wants to find his wife and son, so he heads to Atlanta, which is rumored to be a safe haven. And the game is on. — Ray Stackhouse
Read on for previews of Ghost Hunters Halloween Live, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, Sunday Night Football, Boardwalk Empire, Desperate Housewives and Dexter.
Bored to Death
Bored to Death
It's been a tough season for George: blindsided by prostate cancer, he's also found his position at the magazine diminished by cost-cutting overlords. To top it off, his driving skills are increasingly impaired by his copious pot smoking. But things could be looking up, in their typically goofy, convoluted way, when Jonathan tries to help a limo driver who recently lost his job. Meanwhile, Ray's lucky streak continues when Kevin Bacon takes an interest in his Super Ray comic book. — Joe Friedrich
Read on for previews of Sunday Night Football, Secrets in the Walls, CSI: Miami, Masterpiece Mystery!, Sexy Beasts: Vamps, Wolves and Mutants and Brothers & Sisters.
Gaby might have bitten off more than she could easily chew last week when she gave Bob the OK to track down her real daughter. In any event, Carlos certainly thinks so, and you're likely to see if he's right tonight when you meet the Sanchez family. You can also look for the Bree-Renee smackdown over Keith (Brian Austin Green) to intensify; and you'll see Susan in her Va-Va-Broom get-up in places where she won't want anyone, especially Mike, to see her. Mike and Susan are also losing their tenants: Paul Young buys back the house he shared with his late first wife, Mary Alice. — Paul Droesch
Read on for previews of Mad Men, Rubicon, Sunday Night Football, Sonny with a Chance, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition and Luther.
The Amazing Race
Amazing Race 17
Brook and Claire will attempt to hold on to their lead as the teams continue to race in Ghana. Last week, home-shopping host Brook had no trouble selling sunglasses to locals, but tonight a deceptively simple quiz could cause problems. Also, the punishing Ghana heat proves too much for one racer, who requires medical attention due to the extreme temperatures. — Tim Holland
Read on for previews of Sunday Night Football, The Cleveland Show, Boardwalk Empire, Dexter, Mad Men and Brothers & Sisters.
