Are you guys watching Brooklyn Nine-NIne yet? Get on that! It’s hilarious! Anyways, here’s what happened this week…

Breaking Bad airs its final episode on Sunday! And the entire cast of the show, plus creator Vince GIlligan, were on Conan this week.

-Jimmy Kimmel and Kanye West may or may not be in a fight right now.

-A bunch of new shows debuted this week, including Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., The Crazy Ones, The Michael J. Fox Show, and a bunch of the shows that will probably be cancelled come next year.

-Not only is Kevin Smith making a Clerks III, but he’s also making a movie about a man who turns into a walrus. It’s called TuskI think Kevin Smith is the only person who thinks Kevin Smith is still relevant anymore.

-Jimmy Fallon continues being the best late-night host out there and sings with the cast of Sesame Street.  And has a lip-sync battle with Stephen Merchant and Joseph Gordon Levitt. 

-Vulture posted a super important list about pop culture milestones that define millennials. So, basically, that list is everything our blog is trying to be so maybe we should just quit?

-Colbert’s speech at the Emmys may have been sincere and lovely, but let’s see what happens when he gets back into character and still has two Emmys.

The Glass Menagerie opened on Broadway featuring glamorous actress Cherry Jones, adorable ray of sunshine Celia Keenan-Bolger, and everyone’s favorite Spock-Who-Isn’t-Leonard-Nimoy, Zachary Quinto.

-Seriously. Watch Breaking Bad on Sunday.

Coming Up Next Week:

-Remember that time I said I was going to review Netflix Original Series Derek? That’s still happening I promise?

-An postmortem on Breaking Bad. It will be sad, then happy, then sad again.

-We look at Homeland and Masters of Sex. 

ICYMI: The Real Star of the Emmys Telecast

As we’ve said a million times at this point, the Emmys telecast was boring, weird and awkward all at the same time. But there was one man, one myth, one legend, who truly stole the show.

During a short promo for the telecast DURING the telecast, a random man found himself directly behind NPH and quickly sidled out of frame. The. Best.

Emmys 2013 Recap: Interpretive Television Dancing and Oh my God Everyone is Dead

YOU GUYS, YOU MADE JON HAMM SAD

Well, in lieu of a live-blog, here is our moment to moment Emmys recap, of the weirdest and most depressing telecast that has aired in FOREVER. If you read this even a little bit you will see I get way more confused and frustrated and way less diplomatic around 9:30. Not my fault. I blame whoever directed it.

One bit of full disclosure- because Ben was wrapped up in Breaking Bad, I had two Twitters and a live blog to man, and as a result, @PopCultInformed fell by the wayside. To see up to the minute tweets, you can check my personal Twitter, @ninastarner, because I am shamelessly self-promoting. Sorry, guys! Multitasking is hard!

Anyway, here we go…

Emmys tonight!

See, Miley? THIS is how you do it.

Don’t forget, I’ll be posting moment to moment recaps of both the red carpet pre show AND the Emmys telecast tonight! (I wish I could figure out how liveblogs work, but HTML is very confusing and everyone will be reading Go Fug Yourself or Vulture anyway.) Hopefully the telecast will be as excellent as NPH’s Emmy Instagram! 

EDIT: I’ll also be live Tweeting the event on our Twitter, @PopCultInformed, and if I have time, I’ll make some pithy comments on my own twitter, @ninastarner!
