When "Weeds" premiered on Showtime, it seemed the quintessential suburban satire: Widowed stay-at-home mom accidentally becomes pot dealer and finds her inner gangsta amid the manicured lawns and granite-countered hypocrisy of a Southern California planned community.

After last year's season finale of "The Killing" generated howls of indignation, the show's blindsided creative team began worriedly plotting to win back their audience. What if the show's central mystery was answered — something implicitly promised in its first season promotional campaign "Who killed Rosie Larsen?" — in the opening episode of the new season, which begins April 1? After lengthy discussions, executives at AMC and the show's production company, Fox Television Studios, ultimately decided against the highly unusual step, according to a person familiar with those talks who was not authorized to speak about them publicly.

Hang on to your deerstalker cap: Sherlock Holmes is not dead. This news may come as a shock to some, not least to John Watson, the doctor played by Martin Freeman in "Sherlock," the BBC's contemporary adaptation of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's famous detective stories. The critically acclaimed show, with Benedict Cumberbatch as the title detective, returns to PBS on Sunday. The new season picks up two years after the last one left off, with Holmes having faked his own death by supposedly leaping from St. Bartholomew's Hospital.

For the third year in a row, the producers of "The Walking Dead" have gotten a jump on the new season with a short series of webisodes telling short tales from other parts of the "Walking Dead" world. If you need some kind of transition between the emotional high of the "Breaking Bad" finale and the return to the grim and gory world of "The Walking Dead" (as if "Breaking Bad" wasn't grim and gory enough), then these webisodes serve as the perfect way to ease back in. PHOTOS: Behind the scenes of 'The Walking Dead' This year's three-webisode series is called "The Oath" and it follows the efforts of survivors Paul (Wyatt Russell)

The best "show" of the new season is the California raisin commercial. My only criticism--it's too short! Michele Byer, Los Angeles

There will, indeed, be a new governor in town on the set of "The Walking Dead. " AMC finally confirmed Wednesday that Scott M. Gimple will take over as showrunner and executive producer for the series' fourth season. Reports had circulated as early as December that a change of management was coming to the AMC ratings workhorse. Gimple, who has been on the show's writing staff since the second season, replaces Glen Mazzara -- and marks the show's third showrunner in its four-season run. (Mazzara had replaced Frank Darabont after he left early in the second season.)
