For master illusionist David Blaine, the last five years have been a grueling adventure, traveling the world and filming performances for his latest ABC special, David Blaine: Real or Magic (Tuesday, Nov. 19, at 9:30/8:30c). "My whole team has been put through the grinder and back," says Blaine, 40. "We tried really hard to make it look different from any other special you've seen."
These are the guest stars and events that the networks have planned for the second week of November sweeps:

Breaking Bad's Bryan Cranston is back as Ted's reviled, pompous former boss.
This week, Anthony Hopkins discussed his Breaking Bad fan letter with Jay Leno, while Ted Danson played a game of "Cheers or CSI?" with Arsenio Hall. Jimmy Kimmel resurrected his annual Halloween candy prank video, and Aziz Ansari's new stand-up special premiered on Netflix.

Better Call Saul, the planned Breaking Bad spin-off about Bob Odenkirk's greasy lawyer Saul Goodman, may act as both a prequel and a sequel to its predecessor.
Though the project was originally described as telling the story of Saul before he became involved with Walter White (Bryan Cranston) and Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul), Odenkirk tells IGN it may also incorporate elements of what happened to Saul after the Breaking Bad finale.
A "funeral" was held for Breaking Bad protagonist Walter White (Bryan Cranston) in Albuquerque over the weekend, and raised thousands of dollars for a local organization that provides services to the homeless.
