    Breaking Bad !
    Mid Finale
    gotta wait for next year ?

  2. Elf says:

    Breaking Bad all the way, but I do think it’s bs to put 10 months in the middle of the final season. It’s whack, yo.

  3. T.T says:

    Big Brother.

  4. D'Arcy says:

    The only thing getting me through the fact that Breaking Bad is off for ten months is that September brings back many of my favourite shows, and then in March Game of Thrones is back, and then Breaking Bad again. TV getting me through TV breaks. I think I should go outside.

  5. Templar says:

    OUAT then over to PBS for a Masterpiece Mystery Inspector Lewis that I missed the first time around.

  6. nick1372 says:

    I’ll be watching OUAT and ABC’s fall premiere peek, and then watching stuff on the DVR.

  7. Mark says:

    Bleh. Why have the people from the Chew do it? They have no business doing that. Should have had the ladies from the View doing it.

  8. Britta Unfiltered says:

    Breaking Bad for sure here. I agree that 10 months as a season break is BS, but maybe this will help Jon Hamm get his Emmy in 2013. I’ll also be watching Weeds and I might check out Into the West. I love pioneer stories. I’ll definitely watch Hell on Wheels though your tidbit about Catherine Hardwicke nearly scared me off of it. Sigh. She directed Thirteen. I’m focusing on that, that’s my happy place. I’m not sure about Small Town Security. The Soup’s description of it being “David Lynch does reality TV” was the kind of description that makes me want to run far, far away. Because unfortunately I still remember the trauma that is Mulholland Drive.
