Breaking Bad (AMC, Sunday 9 p.m.) — We hit the halfway point in the second half of the fifth season of Breaking Bad on Sunday, and I’ve watched this episode’s teaser about 47 times and the only thing I can glean from it is that, not only is Walter White the devil, but Jesse inexplicably still calls him “Mr. White.” How very deferential. It’s the only vestige of the chemistry teacher remaining. Also, the teaser shows that the episode involves a scene with Walter White near the pool, which is where he was when the plane went down, when Skyler attempted suicide, and when Hank linked him to Heisenberg. It’s never a good thing when Walter is hanging out at the pool.
Dexter and Newsroom — Both shows take the holiday weekend off, so check out one of these Netflix series to catch you up on fall television.
Comedy Bang! Bang! (IFC, Friday 10 p.m.) — Sarah Silverman is on this weekend, probably complaining about how Amy Schumer stole her place in the comedy world.
Low Winter Sun (AMC, Sunday 10 p.m.) — The ratings for the third episode of Low Winter Sun were so low that that it didn’t even rank in the top 100 cable shows for the week, which means that it fell from Breaking Bad’s 2.5 rating in the demo to below a .5. I know that cable series are never cancelled in-season, but if there was ever one that deserved it, it’d be Low Winter Sun. Good thing, Chris Carter is developing an AMC series. They’re going to have a lot of holes to fill after Breaking Bad and Mad Men depart.
Continuum (SyFy, Sunday 10 p.m.) — Second season finale, which reminds me, I still need to finish the first season, which has been collecting dust on my DVR along with the last couple of episodes of Under the Dome.
Oprah: Where Are They Now? (OWN, Sunday 10 p.m.) — It’s possible that you could be so desperate to 1) find the OWN network on your cable listings, and 2) watch a “Where are they now?” special on Molly Ringwald, but if you get that hard-up for television entertainment, you should probably double check your life priorities.
Happy Labor Day weekend.
