Jesse Tyler Ferguson
This week, as Toronto mayor Rob Ford continued to careen off the rails, everyone pondered how great it would be if Chris Farley were still alive to mimic Ford on Saturday Night Live. Wes Anderson and Jason Schwartzman teamed up to create a new short film for Prada, while screenwriter Evan Daugherty (Snow White and the Huntsman) put a dark spin on Super Mario Brothers. Also, Jimmy Fallon hosted a game of celebrity charades, and Jesse Tyler Ferguson and George Takei created a gay version of The Bachelor.

What if the entire Walter White saga was just a Bad dream?
In this hilarious "alternate ending" to Breaking Bad, which is featured on the complete series set, star Bryan Cranston reunites with his Malcolm in the Middle co-star Jane Kaczmarek to imply that all of Breaking Bad was just a nightmare on the part of Cranston's Middle character, Hal.

Mathew Baynton, James Corden
Russian gangsters, car chases, government conspiracies — these aren't things you often see in comedy. At least not on TV.
Action-comedy films have been around forever, but no one has attempted to blend the genres within a half-hour comedy slot. Until now. On Monday, Hulu debuts The Wrong Mans, an ambitious comedy-thriller from Gavin & Stacey's James Corden and Mathew Baynton co-produced with the BBC. The duo star as Phil (Corden) and Sam (Baynton), two below-average Joes who unwittingly get sucked into a high-stakes crime caper after answering a cell phone found on the road.
These are the guest stars and events that the networks have planned for the second week of November sweeps:

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. Also, a group of middle school football players put together a heartwarming special play for one of their teammates, and an aspiring filmmaker figured out a way to amuse New York City subway conductors on the job.

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.
Strong female characters are rarely allowed to be nuanced on TV. They don't get to be brilliant, vain or funny. They get to be strong (and maybe sexy, if they're lucky). They kick a--, overcome obstacles and rarely display any signs of feminine vulnerability. Often times, their strength is framed as the result of some "issue," (SVU's Olivia Benson troubled childhood, Sonya Cross' Asperger's on The Bridge), as though the women are only strong because a catalyst forced them to be this way.
But Mindy Lahiri doesn't have issues (well, she has issues, but not in that sense). She's a strong, well-developed comedic antihero on par with Michael Scott. But many Mindy Project viewers didn't warm to Mindy as quickly as they took to the equally offensive Office boss. "I think that [Mindy] is very resilient and very confident and until you see her display kindness or show rapport with other people, it's hard for an audience just to decide they love her," Mindy Kaling tells TVGuide.com, recalling the initial reaction to the character.
