Aaron Paul is not taking this one lying down.

CSI Season 15 will be a little different than past seasons of the long-running CBS series, and by different, I mean shorter. CBS has announced that the episode order for CSI Season 15 has been trimmed from the show’s usual 22 episodes down to 18, making this the first time in CSI‘s history that it will be airing less than a full season’s worth of episodes (by network standards, a full season equates to 22, not 13 which is the status quo for many cable programs). The CSI news was first reported by Michael Ausiello of TVLine, who was given some information on why exactly the episode order was cut. He was reportedly “told the decision was more about inventory than ratings. In addition to spin-off CSI: Cyber, which is slated to assume CSI‘s Sunday-at-10 perch later this season, CBS also has Vince Gilligan’s Battle Creek and a seventh season of The Mentalist waiting… »

For only the second time ever, "CSI" will air less than 22 episodes this season, as CBS has cut the crime drama's episode order.
TVLine reports that the 15th season of the venerable drama will now have only 18 episodes, the fewest since the 17 that aired during the 2007-2008 writers' strike season. But the site says that the decision "was more about inventory than ratings."
CBS already has a backlog of programming waiting to make it to air, including the seventh (and rumored final) season of "The Mentalist," as well as the new Vince Gilligan drama "Battle Creek." Deadline notes that the cut "was part of a flex plan put in place in May, with the network now triggering the option to go down to 18 episodes."
TVLine's report also notes that "CSI"'s move to Sundays at 10 p.m. this season has been a relative success: though overall ratings are down, it's »

CSI‘s current season will fall a tad short.
TVLine has learned exclusively that CBS has trimmed the venerable procedural’s Season 15 episode order from 22 to 18.
I’m told the decision was more about inventory than ratings. In addition to spin-off CSI: Cyber, which is slated to assume CSI‘s Sunday-at-10 perch later this season, CBS also has Vince Gilligan’s Battle Creek and a seventh season of The Mentalist waiting in the wings.
CSI’s move to Sundays at 10/9c has produced decent results: Although the show is down double-digits from its Season 14 average (when it aired Wednesdays at »
When AMC announced they were splitting the final season of Mad Men into two seven-episodes halves, similar to what had been done with Breaking Bad in its last two years, I could only roll my eyes in disdain. The splitting of cable drama seasons is often an annoyance, and while it can work out fine with some series – The Walking Dead and its enormous fanbase seem to have adjusted just fine to the strategy over the years, in part because they’ve being doing it since the second season – it feels especially cumbersome and unnecessary when imposed upon the final years of a long-running drama that has long-since established a workable format.
It’s easy to forget that Breaking Bad seriously struggled with the half-length season format in its 2012 episodes, given how utterly brilliant the final eight hours were in 2013, but where Vince Gilligan and company had so carefully cultivated »

If you’ve got a problem – and no one else can help – and if you can find him, maybe you should call… Saul Goodman.
Breaking Bad fans, don’t despair – no need to allow your grief over the show’s departure to send you down the dark tunnel of meth addiction or scurrying for the nearest jewellers to steal baby tiaras. If you’re even vaguely familiar with Vince Gilligan’s masterpiece, we don’t need to spell out the fact that it ain’t coming back, but Walter Whitites can rejoice nonetheless in the arrival of Better Call Saul in February.
As for finding Saul, unlike the elusive A-Team, that shouldn’t be a problem for any legally challenged residents of Albuquerque. If you own a television set, you’ll have seen his gaudy, lowest-common-denominator commercials, complete with cheesy graphics and hot cops. If you’ve ever waited for a bus, »

Cannes — Steve Mosko, president of Sony Pictures Television, told delegates at TV market Mipcom Monday that “Breaking Bad” spinoff “Better Call Saul” would prompt fans of the original show to rewatch past episodes of “Breaking Bad.”
“For all the ‘Breaking Bad’ fans there will be a lot of twists and turns. I won’t spill the beans too much, but it is going to force you to go back and check out things that happened in ‘Breaking Bad’ to make sure you were clear about what you saw back then,” said Mosko, who recently visited the “Better Call Saul” set.
Mosko also showed a new trailer from “Powers,” a drama series produced for the PlayStation Network about a superhero who has lost his powers. Mosko said the show »

This story first appeared in the Oct. 17 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine. Officially, the European showrunner doesn't exist. Until a few years ago, even the most ambitious continental small-screen creatives would, at most, designate themselves as "head writers." But as co-productions abound and talent crisscrosses the Atlantic, something akin to a U.S.-style showrunner is beginning to emerge. Few so far enjoy the status — or salaries — of such U.S. showrunners as True Detective's Nic Pizzolatto, Orange Is the New Black's Jenji Kohan or Breaking Bad's Vince Gilligan, but Europe's showrunners are getting

AMC has released a strange and amusing new promo spot for their Breaking Bad spin-off series Better Call Saul, which fans seem to be very excited about seeing. I thought this spot was great because it's in the form of an upbeat and catchy original country western song with lyrics written by series creators Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould. It was performed wonderfully by Junior Brown. It's extremely entertaining, and fans are going to love it. The video also includes footage from the series.
The series is 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, »

Better Call Saul is getting more Breaking Bad–like by the day: First we got Mike Ehrmantraut, then we got Vince Gilligan, and now we have learned that Breaking Bad composer Dave Porter (who co-wrote the Junior Brown song that dropped yesterday) will be scoring the spinoff. Porter scored all 62 episodes of BrBa and wrote the theme song. "Dave Porter is an irreplaceable member of the Breaking Bad family, and we're thrilled to have him aboard Better Call Saul," says Gilligan. "He gets right to the heart of every scene, writing a score that resonates perfectly with the story. I can't imagine doing our new show without him.” Now we just need those rumored Walt and Jesse cameos to come to fruition and it will be like we never left. »

Bob Odenkirk, is featured in a new music video promoting his “Breaking Bad” spin-off, “Better Call Saul.” But the booming baritone of country singer Junior Brown is the star of the hilarious clip.

Who is behind that catchy jingle for Better Call Saul?

AMC are amping up their return to the Breaking Bad Universe. This weekend’s marathon of Walter White’s exploits came to a head last night, with the inclusion of a new music video trailer for Better Call Saul.
The spinoff isn’t set to air until February 2015, and will focus on the story of fan-favourite lawyer, Saul Goodman. The character, who appeared in Breaking Bad, was established as a somewhat shady attorney of ill-repute. His tactics for helping his clients often bordered on incredibly sketchy, but that won’t exactly factor into his new show.
Set in 2002, Better Call Saul will take a trip back to before Saul had sunken into the depths of depravity, and was known by his real name, Jimmy McGill. Breaking creator Vince Gilligan is back onboard as showrunner along with Peter Gould, which indicates we’re in for more top-quality entertainment this coming Winter. »

We’ve seen a couple of brief teasers for Better Call Saul [see here and here], and now AMC has given us another peek at the upcoming Breaking Bad spin-off with a music video for ‘Better Call Saul: The Song’, which has been written by show creators Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould and Breaking Bad composer Dave Porter, with country musician Junior Brown perfoming. Unfortunately, the official video below is only playable within the U.S., but there’s a low quality version below that should work worldwide. Check it out below…

"If you drink one drink, drink two, drink three Long Island ice teas. But your buddy's worse off and he throws you his car keys!" AMC has just unveiled the official song for Better Call Saul, the highly-anticipated Breaking Bad spinoff series that follows lawyer Saul Goodman before and after his fateful meeting with meth kingpin Walter White.
This catchy tune comes courtesy of Junior Brown, who rattles off a number of reasons why you Better Call Saul in what serves as both a music video and the catchy jingle for a commercial might see playing on TV late at night. The tune brings just the right amount of sleaze and charm to what promises to be one of next year's most exciting TV dramas.
Bob Odenkirk will reprise his role as the infamous Albuquerque-based lawyer in the series premiere, set six years before Saul Goodman's entire life is upended. »
Better Call Saul isn't out yet, but it has its own music video already. AMC released the music video during its Breaking Bad binge on Sunday night. Performed by Junior Brown, the show's creators Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould wrote the lyrics that include drinking too many Long Island iced teas, shop-lifting from Walmart and disappearing husbands. "Saul, Saul, you better call Saul. He'll fight for your rights when your backs to the wall. Stick it to the man, justice for all. You heard me, you better call Saul." The video also includes new clips from the upcoming Breaking Bad spinoff prequel that follows Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk) back in the day when he went by Jimmy McGill. The cast »
If arrested and given one phone call, who would you use it on? The new music video for AMC's upcoming “Breaking Bad” prequel strongly suggests that one take the opportunity to contact faux New Mexico attorney Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk). The original song, which shares the same title of the new series — “Better Call Saul” — is performed by Junior Brown, with lyrics by show creators Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould.
