Here’s what’s happening in the world of television for Sunday, March 4. All times are Eastern. 


Top pick

90th Academy Awards (ABC, 8 p.m.): It’s going to be hard to top last year’s insane Oscars climax—one of the craziest things we’ve ever seen on television—when La La Land incorrectly got called out as Best Picture, and Moonlight was swiftly announced as the correct winner. At the A.V. Club offices, there was a lot of swears of disbelief. The gang is getting back together this year, as our film editor A.A. Dowd; news editor Katie Rife; Great, Job Internet editor Clayton Purdom; and others will be on hand to see how swiftly Jimmy Kimmel’s monologue references 2017’s fiasco, and then help walk you through all the winners.


Regular coverage 

The Walking Dead (AMC, 9 p.m.)
Here And Now (HBO, 9 p.m.)
Homeland (Showtime, 9 p.m.)
Ash Vs. Evil Dead (Starz, 9 p.m.)
The Chi (Showtime, 10 p.m.)
Divorce (HBO, 10 p.m.): Second season finale


Wild card

The Good Fight (CBS All Access, 3 a.m.): The online CBS series returns, as Christine Baranski heads up a stellar cast that continues to explore the goings-on of an extremely eventful law firm in Chicago. Just in the preview trailer, Baranski’s Diane hooks up with Tim Matheson, hugs her ex Gary Cole, and faces off against judges Rob Reiner and Jerry Adler, the latter of whom plays her old Lockhart And Gardner colleague Howard Lyman. And that’s not even counting Audra McDonald, Delroy Lindo, Carrie Preston, Cush Jumbo—lots of good people on this show, and it might be worth catching up on season one online and diving into this tension-filled new season. Kayla Kumari Upadhyaya is way ahead of you, as usual.
