CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- So, I had some good columns prepared for this week and next. I was going to evaluate the season's new dramas this week and the comedies next week.Yes, I had all my insights ready to share with you.And then my computer died.It's toast, and thus, so is everything I wrote.I've got plans that prevent me from rewriting everything right now, so that will have to wait. (Although I will get to it soon.) However, there are several noteworthy listings that I wanted to share. I hear from a lot of people that the listings part of my column is a big help, and there's some good stuff to be found in it this week -- like the season premieres of "The Walking Dead" on Sunday and "Suburgatory" on Wednesday.
