Breaking Bad

Breaking Bad
10/9c AMC
Chilling, jarring, charged, explosive. They all fit the description for this episode, which is jam-packed with one unforgettable scene after another. Hank gets his revenge for the bogus phone call about Marie being rushed to the hospital; Jesse is handed the ultimate get-out-of-jail-free card that he expects to use to trump the police and the DEA; and the loco brothers from Mexico with their ax to grind with Walt and Hank pull the trigger on their own plan for revenge.

Read on for previews of Cleveland Show, The Pacific, Cold Case, Boondocks, Family Guy and MLB Baseball. read more

First a Peabody, Next a Renewal?

Call me greedy, but when I get a little taste of good news, I can't help wanting more. Which is why, on a morning when NBC pleasantly surprises me with an early-renewal notice for the hilarious 30 Rock and the classy Peabody Awards lists among this year's honorees NBC's other best freshman show, the tremendously moving and appealing Friday Night Lights, I can't help but think the fates are aligning to give us a second season of this small-town gridiron drama as well. C'mon, NBC. Do the right thing. You know you want to.Here's how the Peabodys described Friday Night Lights in its citation: "No dramatic series, broadcast or cable, is more grounded in contemporary American reality than this clear-eyed serial about the hopes, dreams, livelihoods and egos intertwined with the fate of high-school football in a Texas town." Pretty nice, huh?Only two episodes left to go, tonight and next Wednesday. Regardless of how the Panthers play in the state championship, this show has proven itself to... read more

Fall's Edgiest New Show Is... a Cartoon?

The Boondocks

Bold even by late-night standards, The Boondocks is an animated adaptation of the satiric newspaper comic strip. Set to join Cartoon Network's Adult Swim block on Oct. 2, The Boondocks follows the adventures of Huey and Riley, brothers aged 10 and 8, as they move from Chicago's South Side to their grandfather's home in suburbia. TV Guide spoke with creator and executive producer Aaron McGruder, who calls the series "an R-rated black comedy in an anime style." That it includes ample usage of the N-word pretty much guarantees it will catch considerable flak this fall.

TV Guide: Who are your targets in the early shows?
Aaron McGruder:
We do a parody of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. Pimp My Ride comes to the house. But we really don't target individuals. I can make fun of people in print because nob read more
