The bodies keep coming on "The Walking Dead" -- and so do the ratings. Sunday's bloody midseason finale of the zombie smash -- complete with the death of two significant characters -- ate up 12.1 million viewers, according to Nielsen. That was higher than any broadcast drama on Sunday (ABC's "Once Upon a Time" scored just 6.6 million), but it didn't come close to the 16.1 million record that "Walking Dead" set with its season premiere in October. Even so, "Walking Dead" remains the top show on all TV in the key demographic of 18-to-49-year-olds and is the highest-rated series in the history of cable.

Well, it looks like “Revenge” isn't so sweet after all. ABC announced its upcoming midseason premiere dates for new and returning shows - and from the looks of it, its taste for “Revenge” has soured a bit. Beginning March 9, the sudsy drama will vacate its 9 p.m. slot on Sundays and head over to 10 p.m. The move comes as the third-season drama, once a solid performer for the network, has experienced dips in its ratings. The shift opens the plum 9 p.m. Sunday slot for freshman drama “Resurrection,” which had been slated for the 10 p.m. period.

After six weeks of high school football, the Internet recruiting experts are scrambling for quick makeovers. Some of their four-star recruits are playing like one stars. Others who seemingly didn't exist are suddenly on the rise. Here's a look at some of the surprise standouts at midseason: Lavan Alston, Ventura St. Bonaventure, Jr.: Former Coach Todd Therrien warned me about Alston more than a year ago, predicting he'd be a star. And sure enough, thanks to his blazing speed, he has become one of the best big-play weapons in Southern California as a receiver and punt returner.
