VIA: For five damn years, Breaking Bad was one of the many shows we often talk about as being much, much better than its ratings reflect. It’s ratings have traditionally been so low that we often question the intelligence (and sanity) of America. This final season — thanks a lot to both word of mouth and easy Netflix availability — Breaking Bad finally surged in the ratings, virtually tripling its viewers upon its return, and last night, the series went out with a goddamn Mercury Fulminate blast.
The series finale was seen by 10.3 million, which is four million more viewers than just LAST week’s episode (that Breaking Bad marathon on AMC, I suspect, added at least one million viewers). That’s especially impressing, considering the fact that the series debuted with only 1.4 million viewers, and that it broke 2 million only once in its first four seasons. The growth — this late in the series’ run — has been insane.
Indeed, the finale had more viewers than anything ever on AMC outside of The Walking Dead. The show did even better in the 18-49 demo, where — despite competition from the networks, as well as Boardwalk Empire and the return of Homeland — it’s 6.7 million viewers crushed every other scripted program on television in its time slot (it was beaten only by Sunday night football). It even lifted Talking Bad to 4.4 million viewers, and a 2.3 in the 18-49 demo, which was good enough to beat both ABC and CBS in the time slot. That’s right: A show talking about another show beat new shows on the networks. If that isn’t another death knell to the networks, I don’t know what is.
New York Giants coach Tom Coughlin has preached that his team stay together and not point fingers during their depressing, winless start to the season. That's going to be more difficult to accomplish as the losses pile up.
Following Sunday's 31-7 loss to Kansas City, wide receiver Victor Cruz questioned Coughlin's decision to punt on fourth-and-inches from the Giants' 30-yard line late in the third quarter. The score was 10-7 at the time. Chiefs return man Dexter McCluster returned the ensuing punt for a touchdown to help break the game open.
"I thought we should have gone for it on that fourth down," Cruz said, per the New York Daily News. "It's coach's call at the end of the day. ... We had the momentum. I felt it was a yard, not even a yard, half a yard, we've got to take a risk at some point and make something happen."
Going for it there would have been out of character for Coughlin. It would have been an aggressive, out-of-the-box decision. Perhaps that's what the Giants need, but it would have shown faith in an offensive line that hasn't earned it.
"It was fourth and miniscule," Coughlin said. "If it hadn't been on the 30-yard line, I would have gone for it on fourth down. But if I had gone for it on fourth down and didn't make it, at that point in the game, that would have been a foolish error."
Cruz's comments are the kind of thing that defensive end Justin Tuck wants to avoid.
"If anyone turns on our coach, I would be the first one to punch him in the mouth," Tuck said. "And put that in print. It better not happen, I know that."
We wouldn't say that Cruz turned on Coughlin. But he questioned him, and that probably will result in a conversation Monday between Coughlin and Cruz.
Ultimately, the Giants' togetherness is an overrated topic. They have been outscored by 85 points in four games. They struggle in every phase of the game. No amount of team chemistry can solve that. They just aren't very good.
There's plenty of "Breaking Bad" props you can buy to prove your super-fan cred. Unfortunately, the house that stands in as the residence of Walter White isn't one of them — so you're just going to have to find another roof to fling a pizza onto. Fran and Louie Padilla, who have lived in the house in Albuquerque, N.M., since 1973, say it's not for sale. The house, visited by more than 1,000 people in the month leading up to the "Breaking Bad" finale, has an estimated value of somewhere between $150,000 to $200,000. But even if you offer the Padillas the millions in cash you've stashed in the desert, they say the memories they've made there are too priceless to give up. The house doesn't look how you'd expect it to on the inside anyway: All the interior scenes of "Breaking Bad" are shot on a soundstage, which Fran says is "hideous" compared to her beautiful home.
