Though Bryan Cranston is best known these days for his work in drama, the Breaking Bad star still loves a good laugh — especially one from a show that feels very familiar to him.
"Not since my days on Malcolm in the Middle have I seen a show that can make you laugh out loud and at the same time resonate on some deeper level [like Modern Family does]," Cranston tells TVGuide.com. "Extremely difficult to do because if the audience smells a 'message' in an episode — game over, show loses. This program has it all... wonderful writing, fantastic actors. Bravo."

Our top moments of the week:
11. Best Excuse for Facial Hair: White Collar mixes style and substance for its flashback episode. Fans finally learn how Neal met his love, Kate, and future partner-in-crime(-solving) Peter. But much more importantly, we get to see Tim DeKay rock a mustache! Your move, Bradley Whitford.
10. Cheapest False Alarm: Remember all those promos for that catastrophic tsunami on Hawaii Five-0? "This is one wave you don't want to ride," CBS warned us. Yeah, it never happened. It turns out the tsunami warning signal was a fake, instigated by a hacker who wanted to create an evacuation as a diversion. We haven't felt this cheated since Rob Lowe "died" for a hot second on Brothers & Sisters (the first time).
9. Worst Display of Emotion: The dysfunction between Sammi and Ronnie reaches a new high...
"Why does fun always have a price?"
These are the words of Poor Sue Heck — I can never refer to this scene-stealing character (played brilliantly by Eden Sher) without adding the word "poor" in front of her name — in another hilarious episode of ABC's underappreciated The Middle. Yes, the show is fun, but with the sting of truth. Living in the shadow of the marvelous Modern Family (which offered up another farcical hoot this week), ABC's Wednesday ...

9. Some Things Never Change Award: On the season finale of Millionaire Matchmaker, Patti tries to find love for Stacy Kessler — a millionairess whom she threw out of her office earlier in the season. But history repeats itself when Stacy shows her date a cringe-worthy, self-made DVD about preparing for a lingerie shoot, which promptly ends the date, and her relationship with Patti -- again.
8. Scariest Stare-Down: Unsurprisingly, former heavyweight champ Patrick "Lights" Leary throws some blood-splattering punches in the Lights Out premiere. But his most threatening confrontation comes when the big bruiser silently stares down daughter Ava's secret boyfriend, "Brent from Brunswick," after the two...

Ricky Gervais and Jon Stewart
Ricky Gervais was supposed to talk about his upcoming HBO stand-up special, Out of England 2, during his appearance on The Daily Show. But between the British comic's chemistry with Jon Stewart and Gervais' blasé attitude toward promoting his own show, their conversation covered different, wider terrain.
During their seven-minute conversation Tuesday, Gervais and Stewart discussed the possibility of a Stephen Hawking talk show. "I was just imagining also how...
