To each generation its poets. For that sliver of a generation sandwiched between baby boomers and Generation X'ers - outside of the luxuriant lyricism of Dylan and Springsteen and the brutal provocations of punk and rap - there's Mark Eitzel and the American Music Club. Looking like low-budget extras in Reservoir Dogs, the San Francisco band played the 23 East Cabaret in Ardmore on Thursday night. And with a rich tapestry of sound that wove mournful pedal-steel and acoustic guitars with surging electric rock, it delivered a set that was nothing less than spellbinding.

NEW YORK - Mary Fickett, who played compassionate nurse Ruth Martin on ABC's "All My Children," has died at age 83. The veteran daytime drama star died Thursday at her home in Virginia, the network said. Fickett was an original cast member of "All My Children," which premiered in 1970, and for decades she appeared alongside Ray MacDonnell, who played her on-screen husband, Dr. Joe Martin, in the fictional town of Pine Valley, Pa. She retired from the show in 2000. In 1973, she became the first performer to receive an Emmy for work on a daytime soap opera.

THE WALKING DEAD. 10 p.m. tomorrow, AMC. AMC has become the TV home for tales of a lone man in the midst of personal turmoil, from "Mad Men"'s crisis-challenged Don Draper to "Breaking Bad's" cancer-stricken meth dealer Walter White to "Rubicon's" perma-paranoid Will Travers. But none of these guys battle zombies. AMC's newest foray into original programming is "The Walking Dead," based on the Image comic created by Robert Kirkman and Tony Moore. And viewers beware: This is a new breed of horror television.

AMC's Rubicon : Lots of puzzles wrapped in who-knows-what-enigmas, with sparing doses of mayhem, suspense, and character. The once-blessed AMC cable channel adds to its stable of two stunning series ( Mad Men and Breaking Bad ) with a giant conspiracy show that will dilute the brand. But that was pretty much inevitable. MM and BB may be grand-slam home runs, but even Ty Cobb struck out occasionally. Rubicon , premiering Sunday with two episodes from 8 to 10 p.m., is no strikeout.

One of the vastly underrated joys of cable TV is a programming service that offers no news, no sports, no original movies, no music videos, only one old TV series, the occasional documentary and, best of all, no ads. For the bulk of its 104 1/2-hour broadcast week, American Movie Classics is just what the name suggests - all movies, all oldies, all the time. Not that movies are all that difficult to find on TV, especially if your budget permits the luxury of premium services like HBO, Cinemax, Showtime, Disney, Bravo or the Movie Channel.

* THE WALKING DEAD. 9 p.m. Sunday, AMC. * COMIC BOOK MEN. 10 p.m. Sunday, AMC. IN THE AGE of the DVR, caring about audience flow is supposed to be, well, so 2007. We record what we want, we watch when we can. AMC must not have gotten the memo, because starting Sunday it's following the return of "The Walking Dead" with the premiere of Kevin Smith's "Comic Book Men. " It might look like a match made in geek heaven, but it's more than the pairing of a show based on a comic book series with one about the people who buy, sell and obsess about comics.

Township and school district officials have confirmed that representatives from American Multi-Cinema Inc. are interested in building a movie theater complex on property owned by the district. "There's been a contact made with the school district at this point," said district solicitor Charles Potash. "There would appear to be something in the nature of a proposal. " Township commissioner Eric Kretschman confirmed that AMC is considering building a 24-screen movie theater on Morrison Tract, 20 acres behind Abington High School at Easton Road and Charles Street.

SO MUCH television, so little time: Even if zombies didn't already make me nervous - when you're a TV critic, you don't need anything else nibbling away at your brain - the ratings for Sunday's premiere of AMC's "The Walking Dead" would probably have caused a slight shudder. I don't begrudge AMC a single one of the 5.3 million viewers who tuned in for Frank Durabont's smart but grisly adaptation of the Robert Kirkman comic-book series, which really begins to get interesting (for me, at least)

The Bryn Mawr Theater, which has served Main Line moviegoers for 70 years, will shut down for at least two weeks while a new organization takes over operations. The AMC chain, which has run the theater since 1987, will not renew its lease at the end of the month. Several industry sources say United Artists Theater Circuit, which runs the Wynnewood and Ardmore Theaters, intends to take over the Bryn Mawr. UA has announced plans for a six-screen theater complex in Manayunk, just across the Schuylkill from the Main Line.

AMC is pairing the final seven episodes of its drama about the transcontinental railroad with an event series from Robert Redford about such Western figures as Jesse James, Wyatt Earp, and Billy the Kid. * THE 70TH ANNUAL TONY AWARDS. 8 p.m. Sunday, CBS3.

Among Hamilton's 16 nominations is one for Philly's Leslie Odom Jr. (pictured)

It's probably good that restaurant workers' hours often don't pair well with prime-time viewing. Because budding food-service entrepreneurs have enough nightmares without imagining Gordon Ramsay rampaging through their kitchens, telling the world, one bleeped expletive at a time, that their signature dish is straight out of the freezer. Not that anything like that would happen on Feed the Beast . A different flavor of cautionary tale altogether, AMC's new drama premieres Sunday after Preacher , before moving to 10 p.m. Tuesdays two days later.

James Franco gets a shave and a haircut and sets out to save John F. Kennedy from an assassin's bullet in Stephen King's time-travel drama 11.22.63 , starting Monday on Hulu. Yes, Hulu. Maybe someday a TV network will green-light a show in which one of its suits goes back in time to strangle streaming technology in its cradle, but until then a certain amount of confusion reigns. The online service owned by Disney-ABC, Fox, and Comcast's NBCUniversal continues to ramp up production on original series meant to help it compete with Netflix and Amazon, two other services that first bought TV reruns and out-of-the-theater movies and now compete with their sellers by making their own. CBS, meanwhile, has hired Bryan Fuller ( Hannibal , Pushing Daisies )

AMC seems gripped by spin-off fever. Six months after it presented the Breaking Bad spin-off Better Call Saul , the cabler is back with a new take on one of its biggest hits, The Walking Dead .

The first of six episodes premieres with an extended episode at 9 p.m. Sunday. The show has already been renewed for a 15-episode second season.

I think we can all agree that Siri, the iPhone's voice-activated helper, doesn't count as a person, even though it sometimes tells a joke. (Ask it to marry you.) What about Pepper, the humanoid robot that sold out within a minute Saturday in Japan? It's designed to read your face and voice and react to your various emotional states. But is it worthy of the same respect as your neighbors? Or your dog? These are some of the questions AMC's Humans will no doubt inspire. A charming, exciting, and impeccably written sci-fi drama for grown-ups co-produced by AMC and Britain's Channel 4, it premieres at 9 p.m. Sunday.

* HUMANS. 9 p.m. Sunday, AMC. ROBOTS are such a sci-fi staple that it might seem as if there's nothing left to say on the subject, at least until Roomba comes out with a vacuum cleaner that looks like a supermodel and wants to talk about its feelings. Yet, there has to be a reason we keep making - and watching - movies and TV shows about robots, and AMC's new "Humans" has a few ideas about that that go beyond Stephen Hawking's fear that artificial intelligence may eventually decide to destroy us. An eight-episode British-American remake of a Swedish show, "Humans," which premieres Sunday, takes place in what the network refers to as a "parallel present.
