"Breaking Bad," one of the great shows in TV history -- which is to say also one of my favorite shows in TV history -- is returning for its final run and (I am SO much enjoying keeping you in suspense) while there's little doubt this will be one of the programming events of the decade (Okay, now I'm even beginning to annoy myself)...

 ...August 11. That's the day.  Mark the calender. "Breaking Bad" will return to wrap its run on August 11, 2013. Eight episodes will air. And we will learn about the fate of Walter White.

  But here, arguably, is even more interesting news: AMC will also launch a show called "Talking Bad," obviously patterned after the successful "Talking Dead."  Details:

AMC announces that it will air a special weekly, half-hour live after show to accompany the conclusion of its Emmy® Award-winning series, “Breaking Bad.” “Talking Bad” will analyze and dissect every detail of “Breaking Bad’s” final eight episodes beginning Sunday, August 11. “Talking Bad” will air at 11pm ET/PT, and will be produced by Michael Davies’ Embassy Row with Sony Pictures Television serving as the studio partner.
