TV Leaderboard: 'Breaking Bad' tops again in EW.com reader ratings

As Breaking Bad enters the homestretch for its fourth season, this week’s episode — in which a tragedy forced Jesse to choose sides in the Walt/Gus conflict — was far and away the highest-rated TV show among EW.com readers. Elsewhere, Glee jumped into the top ranks for the first time, thanks to an episode, “Asian F,” widely considered to be one of the show’s very best in a long time. Parks and Recreation continued its unbroken streak of top-tier ratings, while The Vampire Diaries dropped a bit to fifth. Here are the full standings: READ FULL STORY

TV Leaderboard: 'Breaking Bad' passes 'Vampire Diaries' in EW.com reader ratings

The CW’s The Vampire Diaries may have been tops in EW.com reader ratings last week, but that was only based on partial data — we hadn’t yet been able to include Friday and Sunday programming. And now that a full week of new TV is under our belt, a new champion has emerged: AMC’s Breaking Bad, in which a desperate Walt turned to Saul for help after Gus brought the hammer down. Also moving into the top ranks: the season premieres of Friday’s sci-fi freakout Fringe, and Sunday’s lawyer-cum-political-cum-domestic drama The Good Wife. Check out the full standings below:  READ FULL STORY

The 2011 EWwy Awards: Which series should win Best Comedy?

So many shows, so few Emmy slots. You nominated plenty of deserving comedy series that are just as funny as Emmy’s official chosen ones (Modern Family, 30 Rock, Glee, The Office, The Big Bang Theory, Parks and Recreation). Well, I’ll just say it. A lot of these are way funnier than those. We reluctantly narrowed the field to six; watch them below, then flip through all of this year’s EWwy nominees in our photo gallery.

The 2011 EWwy Awards: Who should win Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy?

The supporting actress comedy pool was just as competitive as its dude counterpart for this year’s EWwy Awards. So many funny female characters help set the tones of their whole show, whether unassumingly (Aubrey Plaza in Parks and Rec) or obviously (Busy Philipps in Cougar Town). By the power vested in us by Annie’s Boobs (ewwww — that’s weird for me to write), we reluctantly narrowed the field to six. Watch them below, then flip through all of this year’s EWwy nominees in our photo gallery. READ FULL STORY

The 2011 EWwy Awards: Who should win Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy?

It was tough to pare down the supporting actor comedy category for this year’s EWwy Awards. After the Emmy noms were announced, the “NICK OFFERMAN WAS ROBBED” comments appeared so early and often on EW.com that in my mind, Ron Swanson is the poster manchild for the EWwys. (Victory over him, Ron Swanson, would be the rarest jewel of all.) Virtually every dude on Community and Parks and Recreation should have been a candidate according to your nominations, not to mention the dozens of other funny guys on TV. We reluctantly narrowed the field to six. Watch them below, then flip through all of this year’s EWwy nominees in our photo gallery. READ FULL STORY

Joel McHale to demonstrate the word 'prickly' on 'Sesame Street.' How perfect is that?

It’s season 42 of Sesame Street come Sept. 26 (check your local listings), and the guest list could not be hotter. Among those on tap: Oscar winners Nicole Kidman and Robin Williams; up-and-coming actresses Emma Stone, Mila Kunis, and Amy Adams; Modern Family‘s Sofia Vergara, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, and Rico Rodriguez; Community’s Joel McHale and Ken Jeong; The Office’s John Krasinski; late night hosts Craig Ferguson, Jimmy Kimmel, and Conan O’Brien; musicians Elvis Costello and Bruno Mars; The Daily Show’s Samantha Bee and Jason Jones; The Big Bang Theory’s Johnny Galecki; funny guys Seth Rogen and Andy Samberg; Tony winner Sutton Foster; New Orleans Saints Quarterback Drew Brees; the New York Knicks’ Amar’e Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony; and Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor. How’s that for variety?

Which guest appearance are you most psyched for? McHale, according to the caption on this photo, at some point, “demonstrates the word ‘prickly’ with the help of his cactus, pineapple and porcupine pals.” Yes, they look very friendly in this picture. I cannot wait. Sadly, we have no idea what Ferguson is demonstrating in the shot below of him with three chickens, but we love it. We’ve also got a surprisingly dignified portrait of Jeong with Elmo for you as well.  READ FULL STORY

Gillian Jacobs and Alison Brie get kinky in 'GQ' photoshoot

It’s Annie’s boobs… and I’m not talking about the monkey.

Community cast members Alison Brie and Gillian Jacobs stripped down for a pectoral pictorial with GQ, and by the looks of it, we’ve all been deceived. There’s no way these girls love chicken fingers. But Jacobs sure likes spatulas. (That’s what that is, right, Mom?)

In all seriousness (well, as serious as you can get writing about this photo), could these funnywomen be any hotter? Give the rest of us some sort of chance here, ladies.

Now, let’s play a game because it’s Friday: Caption this… with a Community quote! I’ll go first:

“I hope you like getting balled.” — Dean Pelton, “For A Few Paintballs Or More”


Emmy nominations announced Thursday: Which longshot are you rooting for most?

Emmy nominations will be announced Thursday morning at 8:35 a.m. ET. You can watch Mike & Molly‘s Melissa McCarthy and Fringe‘s Joshua Jackson do the honors on Emmys.com. Our critic Ken Tucker has posted both his predictions of who will be nominated, and his dream ballot of who should be nominated. For argument’s sake, let’s consider anything NOT on his predictions list a longshot. Which longshot are you rooting for most?

I’ve already emailed Ken to tell him that his predictions made me angry with the Academy and they haven’t even snubbed Justified‘s Timothy Olyphant yet. READ FULL STORY

Ken Jeong teaches you how to save a life with your hands -- VIDEO

Ken Jeong is a doctor, but he doesn’t play one on TV. However, the Community star (and Hangover Part II nudist) is about to administer 200ccs of critical knowledge in a hands-only CPR public service announcement from the American Heart Association, which you can get a first look at here. It involves: a game of charades, The Bee Gees’ “Stayin’ Alive,” some popping and locking, and two hot chicks wearing tight-but-educational T-shirts. Push the play button hard and fast so you can be a life-saverREAD FULL STORY
