AMC has announced that the second half of the final season of "Breaking Bad" will air on August 11, and along with it, a discussion show called "Talking Bad."

According to a press release, "Talking Bad" will "analyze and dissect every detail of 'Breaking Bad’s' final eight episodes." The show will provide a forum for fans to hash out the most recent deets of Walt's nefarious trade, and to compare thoughts and feelings about all of his going-ons.

Variety reports that the first new episode of "Breaking Bad" will air at 9:00 p.m., and that "Talking Bad" will air at 11:00 p.m. the same night.

This isn't the first time AMC has experimented with an after-show. According to Wired, "Talking Dead" -- the after-show for the network's successful zombie show, "Walking Dead" -- pulled in 5.2 million viewers after the show's season finale, which was nearly half of all viewers of "Walking Dead."
