The Super bowl is over, the ads have aired, and now we’re trying to fill a football-sized hole in our TV schedules. Luckily there’s a few new shows airing that may help us get through the winter, unless of course we get more Glee clones that push us outdoors into the harsh, unforgiving elements. Look below for the highlights this week, followed after the break by our weekly listing of what to look out for in TV, Blu-ray and videogames.
The Walking Dead
AMC’s hit show is back for the second half of its second season Sunday night, and we’re… actually anticipating it? Stranger things have happened, and now that the little girl we never really got to know or care about is gone maybe they can leave the farm to go places where things happen. There’s a quick preview trailer embedded after the break.

It’s another show that’s a lot like Glee. These words have either filled you with dread or uncontrollable excitement. Schedule your DVR and plans for this evening accordingly.

We know, we said we were against the quirky reality TV shows (on a slightly related note, the second jousting reality show of the season also premieres this week — how has jousting become a thing?) but this one is crazy enough to pique our interest. Doomsday Preppers goes inside your neighbor’s underground vault to see just what he’s got stocked in there should the worst happen. Don’t wait for the air-raid sirens to go off to find out, just tune into National Geographic tomorrow night, or check out the trailer embedded after the break.
