This is it — your official excuse to bum around the house and not do anything important on Sunday, December 2! That night, starting at 9 p.m., AMC will air The Walking Dead Season 3 midseason finale, Episode 8, "Made to Suffer." As usual, an encore episode airs right afterward, and then the unmissable Talking Dead airs from 11 to 11:30 p.m.

AMC is giving fans a chance to catch up on all the action to date in a handy Season 3 marathon, starting Sunday at 2 p.m., featuring the seven previous episodes back-to-back. So you get to re-watch Lori and T-Dog die, feel sorry for crazy Rick on the phone, and cringe as Andrea falls under The Governor's spell with her Michonne, who? routine.

Don't forget: After the December 2 episode, TWD is going on a break until February. Yes, two months of no Sunday night carnage, until the final eight episodes air in the late winter of 2013. They didn't name the midseason finale "Made to Suffer" for nothing!

Will you be watching the marathon, or do you feel like you're already caught up?
