This week on AMC Networks, the mid-season finale of "The Walking Dead" and all-new episodes of "Baroness Von Sketch Show" and "Blue Planet Now."

"Baroness Von Sketch Show" continues on IFC on Wednesday, November 20th at 12:00 am ET/PT. In new back-to-back episodes, "I Might Still Be Mad in A Week" and "There's a Special Place in Hell," the ladies talk about a vegan's last meal, a fierce manicure, back pain and how, after 40, you're gonna want to exclusively drink white wine.

Fast-paced and irreverent, IFC's "Baroness von Sketch Show" celebrates the absurd, mines the embarrassing and satirizes our daily lives. From marriage equality to screen addiction, Airbnbs to ultrasounds, this hilarious sketch show captures the banalities and absurdities of modern life.

"Blue Planet Now" continues on Wonderstruck on Saturday, November 23rd at 9:00 pm ET/PT. On Saturday's episode, "Wonders of the Reef," Steve, Chris and Liz join scientists to further understand the importance of migrations, long and short, and understand how human demands on the oceans have made an impact on these wild journeys. On the Great Barrier Reef, Liz takes to the water to get a closer look at the great ocean wanderer, the green sea turtle. In the Bahamas, Steve finds himself surrounded by stingrays as a team attempts to ultrasound pregnant females. And over in Mexico's Sea of Cortez, Chris takes to the sky to find the largest ocean migrant of them all, the blue whale.

"Blue Planet Now" is an all-new follow-up series to the critically-acclaimed "Blue Planet II," exploring the health of our oceans and marine life across the globe. "Blue Planet Now" follows hosts Chris Packham, Liz Bonnin and Steve Backshall as they travel to different locales around the globe where marine life is coping with increasing changes. The four-episode series is executive produced by Roger Webb with Vanessa Coates serving as series producer.

"The Walking Dead" continues on Sunday, November 24th at 9:00 p.m ET/PT. In the mid-season finale, "The World Before," a fight causes tensions in Oceanside. Meanwhile, the Alexandrians set out on a high-stakes mission.

"The Walking Dead" is a story that started 10 years ago with one man trying to find his family. That family grew and gradually communities took shape. They fought and survived, thrived and gave birth to a new generation. It is a tale of humankind and there are more stories to tell. It is now Spring, a few months after the end of Season Nine, when our group of survivors dared to cross into Whisperer territory during the harsh winter. The collected communities are still dealing with the after-effects of Alpha's horrific display of power, reluctantly respecting the new borderlines being imposed on them, all while organizing themselves into a militia-style fighting force, preparing for a battle that may be unavoidable. But the Whisperers are a threat unlike any they have ever faced. Backed by a massive horde of the dead it is seemingly a fight they cannot win. The question of what to do and the fear it breeds will infect the communities and give rise to paranoia, propaganda, secret agendas, and infighting that will test them as individuals and as a society. The very idea of whether civilization can survive in a world filled with the dead hangs in the balance.

Following "The Walking Dead," viewers can catch an all-new episode of "Talking Dead" hosted by Chris Hardwick at 10:20 p.m. ET/PT, featuring "Greenleaf" actress Deborah Joy Winans, "The Walking Dead" star Seth Gillam, and a special surprise cast member of "The Walking Dead."
