Breaking Bad

Breaking Bad
10/9c AMC
While Season 2 ended with a bang for Walt and the gang, Season 3 begins in creepy fashion. Everyone is reeling from the mid-air collision of the two planes. Walt is foundering on his own; Jesse is languishing in anguish in rehab; and something wicked their way is a-coming. Walt gets an offer he can't refuse — but he does, and you wonder how long his resolve will last. This unnerving and suspenseful hour is also darkly humorous, and the series hits the ground running. Can't wait to see where it takes us.

Which Shows Need to End?

The Simpsons, 24

TV networks always have one or two shows that overstay their welcome, and we want to know which series you think should be cut loose.

Maybe the animated world of The Simpsons is getting a bit stale after 20 seasons, or Project Runway's recycled challenges are starting to lose your interest. Perhaps you're tired of networks resurrecting hand-me-down shows from their competitors. (We're looking at you, 24.) Or how about Two and a Half Men, now that it's become Two and Three-Quarter Men?

Community Producer: "Season 2 Is a Blank Canvas"

Community

Community, NBC's college comedy, has just got the greenlight for a second season. TVGuide.com checked in with executive producer Dan Harmon to see what's ahead for the students of Greendale, how they'll explain Troy and Abed's special friendship and why the impending graduation of the cast is a tiny narrative problem.

NBC renews 30 Rock, The Office and Community

TVGuide.com: Congratulations on the Season 2 renewal. How does it feel?
Harmon:
Thank you very much. It's very exciting. The feeling in the production offices is surprisingly normal. I guess we're so close to the finish line for the end of the season, that somehow the human brain is capable of tucking that news away while we focus on the task at hand.

TVGuide.com: Would you have planned for some sort of closure had you not heard this soon?
Harmon:
Because... read more

Ratings: Oscars Pull Biggest Audience in Five Years

Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin

The 82nd Academy Awards drew its largest audience since 2005, capping off an awards season that saw ratings growth for every major awards show.

See our take on the Oscars' top moments

The Oscars were watched by 41.3 million viewers, improving 13 percent over last year's audience and posting significant gains for the second year in a row, according to Nielsen estimates. The telecast clobbered the competition, which mostly consisted of repeats or movies.

Before the Oscars, Barbara Walters' final Oscars special drew 15 million viewers, its biggest audience since 2002. The half-hour red carpet show drew its largest audience (25.1 million viewers) in three years... read more

Ratings: Olympics Keeps Dominating, Undercover Boss Stays Strong

Bode Miller

NBC's Winter Olympics coverage took the gold medal in the ratings again Sunday night, but CBS' Undercover Boss was far from a loser.

The new hit reality series drew 13.6 million viewers, building on The Amazing Race's lead-in audience (9.1 million viewers) and handily beating ABC's Desperate Housewives (10.9 million viewers) for second place at 9/8c. Housewives also tied its series low in the adults-18-to-49 demographic.

NBC's coverage of the Winter Games averaged 22.4 million viewers throughout prime time, more than doubling the averages of each of the other networks... read more

The Simpsons Episode Recap: "Boy meets Curl"

Main Story:

Homer and Marge are getting ready for their date night, but due to a leak at the power-plant, Homer misses dinner. Homer and Marge decide to go to the movies, but it is soon ruined by all the other theater participants and the movie's leading actor Ben Affleck. On their way home they pass an ice rink and decide to give it a shot. The rink is closed for curling training. The Simpsons give it a whirl and are naturals at it. The Springfield Curling club is invited to the 2010 Winter Olympics trials as a demonstration sport. With a great performance by Marge, the Springfield Curlers are going to Vancouver (i.e. the warmest city in Canada).

Premise: Matt Groening's subversive, animated satire about Springfield's hapless first family became a cult favorite when it premiered on Fox in 1989 after first being seen in 1987 as a short on 'The Tracey Ullman Show.' That was then; now it's TV longest running comedy. Not since 'The Flintstones' in the '60s has a cartoon series drawn such a large adult audience, and, ay caramba, given us pop-culture expressions for the ages. And in 1999, Time magazine called it the best TV show of the 20th century.
