After nine years on his own show, and even longer as a correspondent on “The Daily Show,” Stephen Colbert finally bid farewell to his conservative pundit alter ego in the final episode of “The Colbert Report” Thursday night on Comedy Central.
It was a star-studded farewell for the long-time host when Colbert broke into a goodbye song. He was joined on-stage by many of his favorite past guests including Jon Stewart, »

Many wondered if Stephen Colbert, after playing a bloviating conservative for 1,447 episodes of his “Colbert Report,” might finally break character and just speak as Stephen Colbert, human being, in Thursday’s final episode. He did not.
In fact, Colbert took things in the opposite direction. In the show’s middle segment, he defeated death and then declared himself immortal. After a commercial break, he warbled the Ross Parke and Hughie Charles tune “We’ll Meet Again” with a wide-ranging and random assortment of well-wishers -ranging from George Lucas to Katie Couric, to Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy to Arianna Huffington to Cookie Monster – then took off in a sled to Eternity with Santa Claus, Abraham Lincoln and “Jeopardy” host Alex Trebek. »

In this exclusive new image from the upcoming AMC show, Jimmy McGill/Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk) and Mike Erhmantraut (Jonathan Banks) are reunited again, with Saul looking intensely at Mike from afar.
Better Call Saul is set six years before Saul meets Walter White (Bryan Cranston). At the time, Saul is still known as Jimmy McGill, a small-time lawyer hustling to make ends meet. Working alongside and often against Jimmy is "fixer" Mike Erhmantraut, who audiences will remember from Breaking Bad. The series will track Jimmy's transformation into a criminal lawyer.

The highly anticipate prequel premieres with a special two-night television event on AMC, beginning on Sunday, February 8 at 10 p.m. Et/Pt with its second episode airing, Monday, February »
Everyone loves Saul, but isn't it time to give his brother a little attention? A new photo from AMC's Better Call Saul shows the inside of Chuck McGill's (Michael McKean) library, as his brother Jimmy McGill — also known as Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk) — looks on. Watch more Vince Gilligan Tackles Four 'Breaking Bad' Myths We don't know much about Chuck, but the photo reveals a few clues (click to enlarge to see for yourself). For one, it's littered with medical books. There's Blood Transfusion Therapy: A Physicians Guide, as well as Conceptual Foundations: The Bridge to Professional Nursing Practice. Could Chuck be a

AMC will be heading back to the world of Breaking Bad next February, but viewers will have to deal with the absence of that series’ leads Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul. Spinoff Better Call Saul, which follows Bob Odenkirk’s conniving Saul Goodman as he rises to infamy as a less-than-reputable criminal attorney, is set years before Walter White (Cranston) and Jesse Pinkman (Paul) ever crossed his path.
Today, a new poster for the series has arrived. It doesn’t reveal a whole lot, but instead teases a return to Breaking Bad‘s New Mexico deserts. Though the poster doesn’t communicate a lot of plot, what we’ve heard thus far about the spinoff and its characters is cause for excitement.

It kind of feels like Breaking Bad only just came to an end a few months ago, so it’s hard to believe that the spinoff series Better Call Saul is set to debut in less than two months. We’ve seen a number of brief video teasers for the Bob Odenkirk-fronted series, but today AMC unveiled the first Better Call Saul poster, which actually might give us a pretty good indication of the show's tone. While creator Peter Gould and executive producer Vince Gilligan (the creator of Breaking Bad) initially envisioned Better Call Saul as a half-hour comedy series, the concept evolved throughout development to a one-hour series that Odenkirk describes as “85% drama, 15% comedy.” Whatever the final tone may be, I’m incredibly curious to see if Gilligan and Gould can succeed in spinning off one of the best shows of all time.

Ahead of its premiere in the New Year, AMC has released the first poster for Vince Gilligan’s Breaking Bad spin-off series Better Call Saul, which sees Bob Odenkirk reprising the role of crooked lawyer Saul Goodman…

Set six years before Saul Goodman meets Walter White. When we meet him, the man who will become Saul Goodman is known as Jimmy McGill, a small-time lawyer searching for his destiny, and, more immediately, hustling to make ends meet. Working alongside, and, often, against Jimmy, is “fixer” Mike Ehrmantraut, a beloved character introduced in ‘Breaking Bad.’ The series will track Jimmy’s transformation into Saul Goodman, the man who puts “criminal” in “Criminal lawyer.” The series’ tone is dramatic, wove with dark humor.

Atticus Finch was a crusader for justice and Lt. Daniel Kaffee proved he could handle the truth — but neither has the mug to prove that they're the world's greatest lawyer. In fact, only one man is righteous enough to claim that title, and he's willing to pay half price for it too: Saul Goodman.
In this exclusive new teaser for AMC's Breaking Bad spinoff, Better Call Saul, a camera scans a shelf of "World's Greatest" mugs — "Girlfriend," "Teacher," and "Boss" — before finally landing on the "Lawyer" selection, with one missing. »
The American Film Institute, perhaps best known by the general public for their 1997 and 2007 lists of the 100 Best American movies, released on Monday their annual list of their favorite movies of the year. But for the first time since voting on the top films began in 2000, the voting body has selected 11 films, not 10. Take that people who think this was a weak year for the movies. Here’s the full list, in alphabetical order:
We can argue until the cows come home about what’s been left out, but for a group that slants to mostly studio pictures and excludes foreign films, not a bad list.
This year’s jury included critics such as Mark Harris, Leonard Maltin, Claudia Puig, Lisa Kennedy and Peter Travers, as well as cinematographer Matthew Libatique and assorted film scholars and industry professionals. »

The American Film Institute (AFI) announced today the official selections of AFI Awards 2014 – 11 outstanding films and 10 outstanding television programs deemed culturally and artistically representative of the year’s most significant achievements in the art of the moving image.
This is the first time in AFI Awards history that the voting procedure – including tiebreakers – has resulted in the inclusion of 11 motion picture honorees.
An almanac documenting works of excellence that mark a moment in time, AFI Awards is also the only national honor for the community’s creative teams as a whole, acknowledging the collaborative nature of the art form. With no winners or losers, honorees are selected based on works which best advance the art of the moving image, enhance the rich cultural heritage of America’s art form, inspire audiences and artists alike, and/or make a mark on American society.
“We celebrate these films and television programs »

Evidently 2014 films are good enough to make the AFI Awards salute 11 films, rather than the usual 10. The honors, announced Monday, gave the season’s first validation to “American Sniper,” “The Imitation Game,” “Interstellar” and “Into the Woods” in the list of the year’s notable film and TV works.
AFI also saluted “Birdman,” “Boyhood,” “Foxcatcher,” “Nightcrawler,” “Selma,” “Unbroken” and “Whiplash,” which have chalked up awards recognition by various voting groups in the last eight days.
Last year, seven of AFI’s 10 film picks ended up with an Oscar nomination for best picture.
In their 15th annual roster, AFI saluted six new TV works and four continuing series: “The Americans,” “Fargo,” “Game of Thrones,” “How to Get Away With Murder,” “Jane the Virgin,” “The Knick,” “Mad Men,” “Orange is the New Black,” “Silicon Valley” and “Transparent.”
The organization usually cites new series and longforms, as well as offering recognition of ongoing »

Here are the details:
Battle Creek, from Emmy Award winners David Shore ("House") and Vince Gilligan ("Breaking Bad"), will premiere Sunday, March 1 (10:00-11:00 Pm, Et/Pt), two weeks following CSI's season finale in the time period. The series stars Josh »
Not long after Better Call Saul premieres in February, Vince Gilligan will soon be on two networks. CBS has revealed that Gilligan’s new cop series Battle Creek will debut on Sunday, March 1, at 10 p.m. (a little less than a month after Saul‘s Feb. 8 premiere date), taking over CSI‘s vacated timeslot two weeks after that show’s finale. Surprisingly, CSI spin-off series, CSI: Cyber, did not get that spot on CBS’s schedule. Instead, Cyber will bow on Wednesday, March, at 10 p.m., taking over for Stalker, which will return at some point later in the season to finish up its 17-episode freshman run. Very different from Breaking Bad, Battle Creek, which was created by Gilligan and David Shore (House), is a “mis-matched buddy cop dramedy” that follows “an amazingly handsome, happy-go-lucky FBI agent” that is “paired with a local, hard scrabble Michigan homicide detective. As they solve crimes together, »

CBS has finally set a premiere date and time period for the anticipated new drama "Battle Creek," from Vince Gilligan and David Shore, though it's a time period that was previously set aside for the now-on-the-move "CSI: Cyber." The network announced on Friday (December 5) morning that "Battle Creek" is going to take the Sunday 10 p.m. slot beginning on March 1. "Battle Creek," which stars Josh Duhamel and Dean Winters was created by Gilligan, but has been entirely run by Shore ("House") with the "Breaking Bad" mastermind off co-showrunning "Better Call Saul." The Sunday 10 p.m. time period is tough for a quality drama due to the regular presence of cable shows -- Gilligan spent a little time drawing big ratings there on AMC -- but it's also a time period that at least gives "Battle Creek" another "quality drama" as a lead-in, in "The Good Wife," rather than using a »

CBS has locked down midseason premiere dates for two key crime dramas: Battle Creek and CSI: Cyber. Battle Creek is from Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan and House creator David Shore and stars Josh Duhamel and Dean Winters as two mismatched law enforcement officers in rural Michigan. The show will air at 10 p.m. on Sunday nights starting March 1. CSI: Cyber stars Patricia Arquette as the head of the Cyber Crime Division of the FBI. The CSI spin-off is going into Wednesday nights at 10 p.m. starting March 4. The shows will replace two others cop dramas: The ultra-veteran CSI on »

Though conventional wisdom (or at least CBS’ original midseason playbook) had CSI‘s latest offshoot claiming its time slot, Battle Creek instead will call Sundays-at-10 home, starting March 1 (two weeks after CSI‘s season finale).
CSI: Cyber meanwhile will air Wednesdays at 10/9c beginning March 4, bumping Stalker from the schedule until later in the season.
CBS is delivering on its promise to air more original scripted programming throughout the year, announcing on Friday premiere dates for a pair of midseason dramas — “Battle Creek” and “CSI: Cyber” — that will run uninterrupted through spring.
“Battle Creek,” from executive producers Vince Gilligan (“Breaking Bad”) and David Shore (“House”) and starring Josh Duhamel and Dean Winters, will bow Sunday, March 1, at 10 p.m. in the timeslot currently occupied by “CSI.” The veteran crime drama will wrap its 18-episode season in February.
“Battle Creek,” which will be airing behind “The Good Wife” on Sundays, also stars Janet McTeer, Kal Penn, Aubrey Dollar and Edward Fordham Jr. Joining Shore and Gilligan as executive producers are Russel Friend, Garrett Lerner, Thomas L. Moran, Bryan Singer and Mark Johnson. The show hails from Sony Pictures Television in association with CBS Television Studios.

CBS has scheduled the premiere of Vince Gilligan and David Shore's Battle Creek. The 13-episode detective series, originally developed 12 years ago, will land on Sunday nights in March. The network is also slotting CSI: Cyber on Wednesdays, leaving several episodes of Stalker to air at a later date. The latest CSI spinoff, which stars Patricia Arquette, was originally being eyed for the 10 p.m. Sunday slot once the parent series ended its truncated order, but CBS brass are said to think the tone of Battle Creek is a better fit with critical darling The Good Wife and

Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan is headed back to Sunday nights. CBS has just announced that the Gilligan-produced drama Battle Creek will air Sunday nights at 10, right after The Good Wife, starting March 1. Battle Creek, a collaboration between Gilligan and House vet David Shore, revolves around a pair of oddball cops in Michigan (Josh Duhamel and Dean Winters) fighting crime and each other. It replaces CSI, which will air its season (and very possibly series) finale in mid-February. CBS will also try to launch a new CSI series, CSI: Cyber, slotting the newcomer Wednesdays at 10 beginning March 4. The scheduling moves are pretty logical: CBS is putting its new prestige drama behind its most prestigious drama on Sundays, while the new meat-and-potatoes crime show will get a lead-in from the very CBS-y Criminal Minds. Set your DVRs accordingly. »
