Premiering Tonight:

The Walking Dead: Season 4

AMC’s runaway hit series about a group of people trying to survive after the world has become overrun by zombies is back for a fourth season, and the critics are already liking what they see. In the season premiere, Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and the gang are adjusting to life with more survivors inside the prison.

New Episodes Tonight:

Betrayal: Season 1

Plagued by a predictable story, lackluster writing, and uninspired acting, critics say Betrayal is far less compelling — even as a guilty pleasure — than it ought to be. Tonight, Drew (Chris J. Johnson) has a confrontation with Jack (Stuart Townsend) in the courtroom.

Boardwalk Empire: Season 4

The pundits say Boardwalk Empire continues to benefit from its meticulously realized period trappings, but what keeps the show watchable is its supremely talented ensemble players. Tonight, Nucky (Steve Buscemi) has a tense reunion with his estranged wife Margaret (Kelly Macdonald).

Drop Dead Diva: Season 5

On tonight’s episode of everyone’s favorite courtroom dramedy about a model trapped in the body of a lawyer, Jane (Brooke Elliott) goes on a blind date.

Eastbound & Down: Season 4

Wild-and-crazy relief pitcher Kenny Powers (Danny McBride) has settled down and become a suburban family man. But is this former hell-raiser getting a little stir crazy? Tonight, Kenny takes the family to a water park, and caps off the trip with a night of partying.

Hello Ladies: Season 1

Stephen Merchant is an intelligent performer, but Hello Ladies is largely a squirm-inducing comedy that lacks the empathy of his best work. On tonight’s episode, Stuart (Merchant) is a bit too controlling during his first date with a yoga instructor.

Homeland: Season 3

As the stakes get higher, Homeland remains a roller coaster ride of tension, and Claire Danes is riveting in what critics are calling one of the best written thrillers on television. Tonight, a mysterious man offers to assist Carrie (Claire Danes), though he wants something substantial in return.

Last Tango in Halifax: Season 1

Charming and sweet, Last Tango in Halifax is a moving comedy-drama that delights as it touches hearts of all ages, boasting marvelous performances by its leading actors, according to the critics. In tonight’s Season 1 finale, Celia finds it difficult to accept that Caroline is gay and mistreats her during a dinner party, causing Alan to rethink his relationship with her.

Masters of Sex: Season 1

The critics say Masters of Sex is seductive and nuanced, featuring smart performances, deft direction, and impeccable period decor. Tonight, Masters moves his study out of the brothel and back into the hospital when he gets skewed results, while Dr. Haas helps a woman pregnant with quadruplets.

The Mentalist: Season 6

In tonight’s new episode, Van Pelt and Rigsby celebrate their nuptials, while Jane takes the team to Napa to investigate a case, primarily so he can keep a closer eye on Sheriff McAllister.

Once Upon a Time: Season 3

Tonight, Neal hopes to reach Emma with one of Robin Hood’s treasured items, while Hook begins a search for Tinker Bell, who makes a tempting offer to Regina in fairy-tale land.

Revenge: Season 3

As the title indicates, Emily VanCamp (Emily Thorne) is still out for revenge. In tonight’s episode, Conrad contemplates his mortality and comes to some meaningful conclusions, while a confrontation erupts when Nolan receives a surprise guest at his housewarming party.

Witches of East End: Season 1

Although it’s ridiculously soapy, Witches of East End is often campy fun; it’s a supernatural spectacle that’s entertaining despite its silliness. On tonight’s episode, Ingrid (Rachel Boston) uses some recently unearthed family heirlooms to fend off Freya’s (Jenna Dewan-Tatum) malevolent ex from a previous lifetime.
