Don’t miss: “The Walking Dead” – Are you nervous? Of course you are. One of the most harrowing TV cliffhangers in recent memory finally gets resolved as the zombie mega-hit returns for its seventh season. When last seen, many of our intrepid survivors had just been captured by the ruthless villain Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan). Wielding a Louisville Slugger covered in barbed wire, he was poised to use one of them for batting practice. But who? We’re about to find out – while peering through our fingers. 8 p.m. Sunday, AMC.

Best bets:

Sunday: By now, it’s blatantly clear that “Westworld” isn’t exactly the happiest place on earth. Tonight, Dolores joins William and Logan on a potentially dangerous bounty hunt in the badlands. 8 p.m., HBO.

Sunday: The craziness continues on “The Last Man on Earth” as a post-apocalyptic road trip has everyone at war with each other. Along the way, Gail is pushed to her breaking point. 8:30 p.m., Fox.

Monday: “Friends” alum Matt LeBlanc returns to network television in the new sitcom “Man With a Plan.” He plays a contractor who starts spending more time with his three kids when his wife (Liza Snyder) goes back to work. We sense trouble – for him and the show. 7:30 p.m., CBS.

Tuesday: Break out the peanuts and Cracker Jacks, it’s World Series time again. Major League Baseball’s Fall Classic gets underway in the home of the American League champ. Fox.

Wednesday: “Rectify,” one of television’s best dramas, kicks off its farewell season. Former death-row inmate Daniel Holden (Aden Young) is technically a free man, but that doesn’t mean his new life in Nashville is without complications. 9 p.m., Sundance TV.

Wednesday: “Jon Glaser Loves Gear” is a new “hybrid” comedy series that follows Glaser (“Parks and Recreation”) as he tries to make a reality series about his love of various gadgets. Of course, things repeatedly go wrong. 9 p.m., truTV.

Thursday: Joel McHale has a new show. In “The Great Outdoors,” he plays a famous adventure reporter for an outdoor magazine who must adapt to the times when he becomes a desk-bound boss to a bunch of millennials. God help him. 7:30 p.m., CBS.

Thursday: “Pure Genius” is a mildly interesting new medical series about a Silicon Valley billionaire (Augustus Prew) who recruits an exceptional surgeon (Dermot Mulroney) to run his state-of-the-art hospital. There, they take on highly challenging cases and argue a lot. 9 p.m., CBS.

Friday: In “Tracey Ullman’s Show,” the hilarious chameleon-like performer returns for more sketch comedy in which she lampoons people like Judi Dench, Maggie Smith and Angela Merkel. We dare you not to laugh. 10 p.m., HBO.

Saturday: In the new TV film “The Night Before Halloween,” a fright-night prank that goes wrong unleashes a creature that is intent on hunting down and killing each of the participants. Our advice: Watch with the lights on. 8 p.m. Syfy.
