We've come to the end of 2015 and a number of shows are either on fall hiatus or headed in that direction. And then there are shows like “American Horror Story: Hotel” that are wrapping up in wild and strange ways. Here to talk about "AHS: Hotel," "Empire" "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend" and a few other shows with host Mekeisha Madden Toby -- including some 2016 midseason offerings -- is fellow TV critic Stacy Roberts, the founder and editor of the web site Seriously? OMG! WTF (which can be found at seriouslyomg.com)

For at least two seasons now some of us – including host Mekeisha Madden Toby  – have been hoping and praying the writers would make Michonne and Rick a couple but that dream is dead for the most part now that Rick is all booed up with Jessie. (Boo!) But that doesn't mean Michonne isn't arguably one of the strongest female characters on TV and one of the most complex African-American characters, made all the more so because of the brilliant woman playing her, Danai Gurira.

Recently, Gurira penned the powerful play “Eclipsed,” which stars Oscar winning actress Lupita Nyong’o and heads to Broadway in February. Meanwhile, the sixth and current season of “The Walking Dead,” which Mekeisha listed as the second best show of 2015 on HitFix’s annual critics’ poll, also returns in February.

In this interview from the "TV Madness" 2012 archives, Mekeisha and another reporter talked to Gurira just as she was joining the cast in season three. Here she talks about the show, Michonne’s deadly katana and more.

Morris Chestnut is the truth. He's talented enough, he's handsome enough and doggone it, people like him. This fall he's costarring in the number one movie in America -- "The Perfect Guy" -- and he's helming the Fox drama "Rosewood." The procedural series feels like "Bones" and "Castle" and has potential. 

Chestnut plays Dr. Beaumont Rosewood Jr., a brilliant pathologist with a short time to live and long list of ways to smartly solve crimes and flirt with his beautiful partner Det. Villa (Jaina Lee Ortiz). 
Will you watch? "Rosewood" is paired with season two of "Empire" so that will make you tune in, right? Come on. Show MC some love. He's been in the biz nearly 25 years. "Rosewood" debuts Wednesday Sept. 23 at 8 p.m. ET on Fox.

Vincent Kartheiser is a gifted actor who made us hate and eventually love him on "Mad Men" for eight years. Although he never received an individual Emmy nomination or award, his performance as Peter Campbell made him an invaluable addition on the award-winning drama. Here, Kartheiser talks about being in an ensemble and how his character Pete changed over time just like he did in real life. "Mad Men" came to an end after seven seasons on AMC in May 2015.
