AMC's "Breaking Bad" is so good that we can't stop thinking about last night's episode. Both macabre and humorous, it was the best thing we saw on TV last night. The show starts with Walter White already out of the frying pan and in the fire and it ends with him seemingly consumed by the flames - we don't know how they're going to keep it up.On Thursday, President Obama will make an appearance on "The Tonight Show", so great ready for traffic jam-inducing motorcades to affect the Burbank area for most of the day. Also, don't forget the snipers on the rooftops.

Supposedly Chevy Chase will be in a new NBC primetime comedy called "Community" with LAist fave Joel McHale. We have high hopes for McHale but we really hope that Chase can bring some of the humor he displayed a couple seasons ago when he cameoed on SNL's Weekend Update - otherwise Chase hasn't done well in TV comedy since his days on SNL a loonnng time ago.
