CBS is trying something a little different with its new drama Hostages.
When CBS introduced it in May, executives called the show — a thriller about Ellen Sanders (Toni Collette), a surgeon who, on the night before she's set to operate on the president, is taken hostage with her family by an FBI agent-turned-terrorist named Duncan Carlisle (Dylan McDermott) who wants the POTUS dead — a "limited series."

Despite the number of terrible things Walter White has done over the course of five seasons on Breaking Bad, the formerly meek high school chemistry teacher-turned-meth kingpin still has viewers who cheer him on in his disastrous journey.
