TV Picks: What We’re Watching This Week

FILE - In these Sept 27, 2012, file photos Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, left, arrives to campaign in Springfield, Va., and President Barack Obama arrives back at the White House after campaigning in Virginia Beach, Va. Fierce and determined competitors, Obama and Romney each have a specific mission for the string of three debates that starts Wednesday night, Oct. 3, 2012. Obama, no longer the fresh face of 2008, must convince skeptical Americans that he can do in a second term what he couldn't in his first: restore the U.S. economy to full health. Romney, anxious to keep the race from slipping away, needs to instill confidence that he is a credible and trusted alternative to the president, with a better plan for strengthening the fragile economy.
