TV Tonight: Breaking Bad and Mad Men


Forget your image of AMC as the stodgy channel of old black-and-white movies. Now, the cable network is bad and mad.

I'm talking, of course, about Breaking Bad and Mad Men, which take over the channel's Sunday night lineup starting tonight. Breaking Bad is the quirky new series starring Malcolm in the Middle's Bryan Cranston as a high school chemistry teacher who completely flips his life's boring script when he's diagnosed with a terminal illness. It follows the success of AMC's first original series, Mad Men, which I named one of my best shows of 2007.

The intriguing clips for Breaking Bad have already prompted me to set my TiVo for tonight; the first episode airs at 10 p.m. EST and PST and will repeat again immediately after. Then, at midnight, AMC begins showing the first season of Mad Men from the beginning — great timing considering the show's Golden Globe wins.

Do you think you'll be checking out either show? To watch the Breaking Bad and Mad Men trailers, just

The first episode of Breaking Bad was great! I am totally tivo-ing the whole thing. I watched one episode (like 15 mins) of Mad Men and was not interested. It seems SO DULL!!

I completely agree that MAD MEN is one of the best shows on television. I have NEVER downloaded an entire season of any shows for my podcast until MAD MEN came along.
