WASHINGTON, December 2, 2012 - Sunday night is a great night for television, and an even better night for the DVR. Most of the Sunday night TV audience tunes in for Sunday Night Football. That means missing The Walking Dead, Homeland, and Dexter, all shows worth watching.
The good news is all these shows have multiple showings throughout the week. The bad news is not watching them when they originally air means spoiler alerts abound at work on Monday.
Since both teams playing Sunday night have losing seasons, tuning in for the mid-season season finale of The Walking Dead is a no-brainer, at least for me. I will be getting one last fix until the season picks back up in February with eight episodes. Tune in and see why The Walking Dead is one of the most watched shows on TV.
