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.

For the 2011-2012 season, you may have noticed that EW.com’s recaps have featured a new starred rating for the episode in question. Each Friday, we’ll reveal your highest-rated episodes for the week. The top vote-getter for this week, The CW’s The Vampire Diaries, should prrrrobably not be that huge of a shock given the show’s rabid following, and a strong episode that saw Elena, Alaric, and Damon confronting a hybrid just hours before a full moon. The biggest surprise? The polarizing series premiere of Fox’s New Girl pulled in the most total votes by far, and easily broke into the top five shows. Check out the rest of the list below:  READ FULL STORY

Sarah Hyland rips into Lea Michele for red-carpet stylings

Glee and Modern Family are pitted against each in several major Emmy Award categories tomorrow night, including Best Comedy Series, but their rivalry has bloomed into a feud thanks to some comments from Modern Family‘s Sarah Hyland. As a guest on E!’s Fashion Police on Friday night, the actress who plays the oldest daughter of Ty Burrell and Julie Bowen mocked the red-carpet stylings of Glee‘s star, Lea Michele. “It’s like a slow-motion picture kind of thing. It’s just like, she puts her hands on her hips like this and like sticks out her collarbones — I don’t know if you can see — she sticks out her collarbones to make her look skinnier and she goes sticks out her lips,” she said, while simultaneously performing an impression.

It’s season 42 of Sesame Street come Sept. 26 (check your local listings), and the guest list could not be hotter.

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

Sofia Vergara's next role: Politician's wife?

Forget Jackie O. Move over, Michelle Obama. If Sofia Vergara’s boyfriend has his way, the Modern Family actress will be the newest style-setter inside the Beltway by 2013, reports the Palm Beach Post. Banking heir and environmental consultant Nick Loeb, Vergara’s boyfriend of a year, is considering running for a U.S. Senate seat from Florida next year. Said Loeb of his potential campaign, “The Emmys are Sept. 18 and I’ll probably make a decision after that.” Glad he’s got his priorities straight! READ FULL STORY

'So You Think You Can Dance': Discuss the Top 12 performances!

Okay, these celebrity guest judges on So You Think You Can Dance are getting faintly ridiculous. Megan Mullally had formal dance and Broadway experience — okay. Debbie Reynolds tap-danced with Gene Kelly in Singin’ in the Rain — love it. And Kristin Chenoweth has won a Tony Award — not for dancing, but that’s fine. But last week’s celebrity judge was Carmen Electra, whose main contribution to last week’s judging panel was her ability to not always use the same generic adjective of bland praise and her ability to not show up for the results show night.

This week’s celebrity judge? Modern Family‘s Jesse Tyler Ferguson. READ FULL STORY
