Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul Ready for Odd Couple to Get Odder

Breaking Bad, Aaron Paul

Aaron Paul says he looks up to his Breaking Bad co-star, Bryan Cranston, and now he's found a perfect way to emulate him. Paul, who plays Jesse Pinkman, Walter White's partner-in-meth on the AMC drama, just earned his first Emmy nomination, for best supporting dramatic actor. Cranston received his second nod in the lead dramatic actor category, which he won last year. We talked to Paul about the future of the show, how close Jesse might get to Walt, and what it's like to play Scott, the anti-Jesse, on Big Love. You really got to shine this season on Breaking Bad.
Aaron Paul: Thanks, man. Running around with Bryan Cranston is always fun and I wish I could work with some of the... read more

Mega Buzz on SVU, Criminal Minds, CSI, Numbers and More

Mariska Hargitay (SVU), Thomas Gibson (Criminal Minds) and Laurence Fishburne (CSI)

Every week, senior editors Matt Webb Mitovich, Mickey O'Connor and Tim Molloy satisfy your need for TV scoop. Please send all questions to

What's in store for Mariska Hargitay's Olivia Benson during the new season of SVU? — Crystal
MICKEY: Executive producer Neal Baer tells me the unofficial theme of Season 11 is "Benson and Stabler against the world." First all up in their grill is Wentworth Miller, who guest-stars as a cop with whom Benson will both clash... and make sexy eye contact! Next, Emmy winner Christine Lahti's ADA Sonya Paxton will be kickin' a-- and takin' names, which won't sit well for Stabler initially, and Benson ultimately. 

I'm going crazy because there hasn't been any news on Criminal Minds. Please, tell me something about Hotch's future! — Francesca
You and many other Mega Buzz readers seem rather concerned about the gun that went off during Hotch's unexpected season-finale face-off with the serial killer known as the Reaper. Well, you should know that ... read more

Mega Buzz on Grey's, Housewives, CSI: Miami, Tree Hill and More!

Katherine Heigl (Grey's Anatomy), Marcia Cross (Housewives) and David Caruso (CSI: Miami)

Every week, senior editors Matt Webb Mitovich, Mickey O'Connor and Tim Molloy satisfy your need for TV scoop. Please send all questions to

Color me shocked that Katherine Heigl isn't leaving Grey's Anatomy. Is it possible we're being duped in some way? — Krista
MATT: I must say that the lack of fanfare surrounding ABC's confirmation of Heigl's status — especially when juxtaposed with the flurry of official statements regarding T.R. Knight's departure — made me raise one of my overgrown eyebrows. "Sure, she's staying... for just one more episode," I cynically hypothesized. But one of my best sources insists that this is not a case of clever semantics, and that Heigl's Izzie will have a significant presence in the fall. 

Please give me some scoop on what's next for Desperate Housewives' Bree.  — Fernando R.
MICKEY: Bree may come off like a brittle maneater, but at heart she's a real softy, which is why juggling an angry Orson and a horny Karl will really ... read more

Mega Buzz on NCIS, Heroes, Betty, 24, Smallville and More!

Michael Weatherly (NCIS), Mary Lynn Rajskub (24) and Hayden Panettiere (Heroes)

Every week, senior editors Matt Webb Mitovich, Mickey O'Connor and Tim Molloy satisfy your need for TV scoop. Please send all questions to

We've been teased big happenings with NCIS' Tony and Ziva, and I'm all for that, but need I be worrying so much? — Kate
I finally got NCIS boss Shane Brennan to dish on "Tiva," and it looks like you might be left to fret all summer long. He told me, "What happens over these next episodes is an evolution of their relationship — though perhaps more extreme than you would get in your normal [workplace]. These people do carry guns!" Then, in the wake of specific events of the May 19 season-ender, he said, "It's up to the audience to decide, and they will over the summer, what might happen [next]. But everything has a life, and eventually things end." Listen very carefully to Brennan's coda here: "Now, if you think I just said that Tiva's going to end, I didn't."

I've heard that Heroes' Volume 4 ends with a major death. Any tease? — Eric
You're half-right. Of course, not everyone who dies stays dead. Except those who do. Also, look for one character to ... read more

Tracey Ullman's State of the Union

Tracey Ullman's State of the Union
10 pm/ET Showtime
She's back! The prodigiously talented and incredibly amusing Tracey Ullman returns for a second season of skewering Americans in the news (and celebrity visitors to America). She kicks things into comic high gear with a wickedly funny spoof of Heather Mills (Paul McCartney's ex) as a reality-TV star. Other highlights include Ullman as Texas-ranch retiree Laura Bush presiding over a garage sale featuring "doodads and objets d'art" from her White House stay, and a send-up of Celine Dion doing post-Katrina calamity cleanup in New Orleans.
