The Walking Dead
The Walking Dead's first season ended with a number of unanswered questions, but as the zombie drama lumbers toward its Season 2 premiere (Sunday, 9/8c, AMC), there's really only one question to be answered: Can the show live on after the exit of executive producer Frank Darabont?
Darabont, who spent years developing Robert Kirkman's graphic novel series for the small screen, was suddenly relieved of his showrunner duties in the middle of production on Season 2 and replaced by his No. 2, Glen Mazzara (The Shield). Even more confounding, the change came days after Darabont appeared at Comic-Con to promote the show. But just like the survivors of the zombie apocalypse, the show's cast and crew keep moving.

Dylan McDermott and Connie Britton play a couple whose marriage is already in trouble when they move into a house with a history of mayhem and find themselves involved with sexually provocative ghosts (think rubber suits and French-maid outfits) and a basement decorated in wall-to-wall carnage. We talked with FX Network president John Landgraf about the challenge of bringing such a bold project to ad-supported TV.
TV Guide Magazine: You're breaking some new ground with this show in terms of graphic content. Are viewers ready for this?
Landgraf: I actually disagree with that
