It's not all serious business with Breaking Bad, even though the last episode descended to tragic depths. Jimmy Fallon finally aired his long awaited parody of of the series last week, called Joking Bad, with Fallon playing a Walter White version of himself.

Sunday's upcoming Breaking Bad episode is entitled Ozymandias... Last July, Vince Gilligan told an audience at the TimesCenter in New York that it "may be the best episode we've ever done". Given the track record of the series, that's something to look forward to..

There are a slew of new vampire shows upcoming (CW's The Originals, for one) to match the success of series like True Blood. So, no surprise that TNT is coming out with a period gangster drama a la Boardwalk Empire, called Mob City, later this year...

Apparently, the Miley Cyrus performance at the recent  MTV Video Music Awards has travelled far – reaching the 23rd century and the Starship Enterprise... it seems to have had a similar effect on Captain Kirk and the crew as it did on the rest of us...

Think about the company you're in when your next pitch falls flat... Here's Seth Rogen, Adam Scott, and Breaking Bad's crooked lawyer, Bob Odenkirk, screen testing in 2003 for The Office. They didn't get hired.

Youtube is the 21st centrury electronic equivalent of the Kinetoscope, with millions of viewers clicking on talking dogs, or in this case, a cat in a shark outfit riding a Roomba being chased by a duckling...
 
 
 
  
 
 
 
 
 

Good news, TVWW readers: David’s new book from Doubleday, The Platinum Age of Television: From I Love Lucy to The Walking Dead, How TV Became Terrific is available on Amazon for $20.

Doubleday says: “Darwin had his theory of evolution, and David Bianculli has his. Bianculli's theory has to do with the concept of quality television: what it is and, crucially, how it got that way."

"The Platinum Age of Television is an effusive guidebook that plots the path from the 1950s’ Golden Age to today’s era of quality TV. For instance, animation evolved from Rocky and His Friends to South Park; variety shows moved from The Ed Sullivan Show to Saturday Night Live; and family sitcoms grew from I Love Lucy to Modern Family. A high point is the author’s interviews with Carl Reiner, Mel Brooks, Norman Lear, Bob Newhart, Matt Groening, Larry David, Amy Schumer and many others...Bianculli has written a highly readable history." —The Washington Post
