better call saul premiere

The wait for Better Call Saul is almost over. AMC announced today that their much-discussed Breaking Bad spinoff will premiere on Sunday, February 8 at 10PM. In the network’s first ever two-night series premiere, a second new episode will air the following night on Monday, February 9 at the same time (with a new episode airing every Monday night thereafter).

With Bob Odenkirk taking the lead role, the spinoff follows the life of the shady yet delightfully witty Saul Goodman in the years before (and sometimes during, and even sometimes after) becoming Walter White’s lawyer in Breaking Bad.

An era has ended for BET’s 106 & Park. The daily music countdown show will air its final on-air episode on December, 19.

The interactive brand you helped build, 106 & Park, is alive and well…and it’s moving to the space in which our audience NOW interacts with music the most; online. It’ll be very exciting to connect with the millions of people that are already engaged with 106 & Park and other BET digital and social media entities and bring content that will further evolve the 106 & Park brand…and enhance the overall BET Networks brand. As we transition to the digital space, we look to continue 106 & Park’s role as both a leader of and a mirror to youth culture. We’ll have more information to share about how that is to roll out very soon.”
