Breaking Bad's Final Showdown: It's Walt vs. Hank

Dean Norris, Bryan Cranston

When Breaking Bad returns for its final eight episodes Sunday, Walter White is surprisingly in a pretty good place.

Although the first half of Season 5 saw former high school chemistry teacher Walt (Bryan Cranston) at his most reprehensible— he murdered his partner Mike (Jonathan Banks) and a dozen other people who could identify Walt as Gus Fring's mastermind meth cook — he still managed to take his meth empire international, make a storage locker full of cash and promise his wife Skyler (Anna Gunn) that he was quitting the business. read more

The Newsroom Goes Back on the Air With Some Key Changes

Jeff Daniels, The Newsroom

When Aaron Sorkin's cable news drama The Newsroom returns for its second season Sunday, things will look a little different.

"We broke one of our own important rules," executive producer Alan Poul tells TVGuide.com. "In the first season, we said there are no fictional news stories. ... We did very well with the 'What's the breaking news story going to be this week?' template, but we had some concern that would get a little bit old. [But] if we had one story that could serve as the through-line on which we could still hang our current event stories, that would give this season an essentially different character."

Mad Men Finale: Is There Still More to the Bob Benson Mystery?

Vincent Kartheiser, Mad Men

One question has been asked more than any other on this season of Mad Men: Who is Bob Benson?

As soon as the talkative, eager-to-please Bob (James Wolk) turned up with two cups of coffee in his hands in the Season 6 premiere, fans began speculating about his importance. Was he a government agent infiltrating the firm? Was he the long-lost son of Don Draper (Jon Hamm) from his days in the whorehouse? Or was he the time-traveling spawn of Pete (Vincent Kartheiser) and Peggy (Elisabeth Moss) who had come back to 1968 to work alongside his parents?

The Killing: Just How Evil Is Peter Sarsgaard's Ray Seward?

Peter Sarsgaard, The Killing

The Season 3 premiere of The Killing introduced viewers to Ray Seward, an inmate who is 30 days from being executed for brutally murdering his wife. But did he actually do it?

The Killing: Does Season 3 show signs of life?

Like almost every element of the show, Seward (an incredibly creepy Peter Sarsgaard) remains a mystery. The enigma surrounding the character is initially based on a series of contradictions. After bashing a prison chaplain's face in on the premiere, Seward proudly takes credit for his wife's murder and recounts in graphic detail the strength it took to kill her. But throughout the episode, Detective Linden (Mireille Enos) finds proof that suggests that Seward's wife was possibly murdered by a serial killer who's racked up more than a dozen other victims while Seward was in prison. Similarly, Seward talks about his son to manipulate a prison guard, but flatly denies having a child when being questioned by Linden.

Is it all just a series of mind games? Yes and no. "In that atmosphere, if you are not built like Vin Diesel, you've got to find a way to make somebody who looks like Vin Diesel fear you," Sarsgaard tells TVGuide.com... read more

5 Things You Should Know About the NFL Draft

NFL Draft 2013

Are you ready for some football?

You're in luck. Because this is the big one. The NFL draft, my peoples!

The NFL draft storms onto the field, so to speak, April 25-27 at New York's Radio City Music Hall, and will be televised on both ESPN and the NFL Network. It marks the first time the draft has been simulcast in its 78-year history.

While this year's draft probably won't have the electricity of elite talent, it does have a couple of fun story lines. We knew the first two picks in 2012; this year is not as predictable. "What I'm hearing repeatedly from some team personnel men, as the draft gets closer and the honesty increases, is that this draft is subpar. Extremely subpar," sports columnist Michael Freeman writes on CBSSports.com. "Few team personnel want to say anything publicly about the paucity of talent out of fear of hearing from the NFL."

Feel the excitement!
