Gene Page/AMC

‘The Walking Dead’
DRAMA. When you see zombies on Sunday, don’t be alarmed — no, you haven’t missed Halloween. It’s just the second season premiere of AMC’s brilliant (and brilliantly terrifying) drama about a band of humans fighting for their lives post-zombie apocalypse. A new season brings a new plan, as the survivors head toward Fort Benning — and directly into the path of a bunch of hungry walkers.
Season premiere, Sunday, 9 p.m., AMC

‘Our America with Lisa Ling’
REALITY. For the Season 2 opener, Lisa Ling’s revealing documentary series turns its lens onto the amateur porn industry — to investigate, not, um, participate.
Season premiere, Sunday, 9 p.m., OWN

‘Don’t Tell the Bride’
REALITY. Oh, you know no good is going to come out of a show with that title, particularly when you learn the premise of this British import involves the groom planning the entire wedding.
Series premiere, Saturday, 10 p.m., OWN

‘Why Am I Still Single?!’
REALITY. Because you search for love on a reality show? Desperate singles seek the advice of New York matchmaker Siggy Flicker in this new series.
Series premiere, 9 p.m., VH1

‘Million Dollar Contractor’
REALITY. The big-budget projects of “Contractor to the Stars” Stephen Fanuka (his clients include Beyonce and Tony Bennett) give viewers a sneak-peek inside some of Manhattan’s high-end luxury homes, but his renovation tips work on any DIY budget.
Series premiere, Sunday, 10 p.m., DIY
