What's on your HDTV: 'Fear the Walking Dead', 'Punk'd' and 'Zombi'

This week a spinoff for AMC's popular The Walking Dead series is premiering, along with the very familiar Zombi game for PC, PS4 and Xbox One. Previously seen on the Wii U as Zombi U, it's (appropriately) making a return on new platforms, with some of the features developed for the Wii U's tablet now redesigned for conventional controllers. Keeping with the theme, our final blast from the past is Punk'd, returning for a 10th season, but now on BET featuring social media stars DeStorm Power and King Bach instead of Ashton Kucher. Need one more? Take a look at Starz on Saturday where Sir Patrick Stewart is headlining a new series Blunt Talk -- or just watch the first two episodes right now. Look after the break to check out each day's highlights, including trailers and let us know what you think (or what we missed).
