Today in news: Breaking Bad gets shopped around, Lucy Liu joins the wave of movie stars coming to TV, and the Bachelorette finale is a fail.

It looks like AMC only wants Breaking Bad's next season to consist of just six episodes, so the BB producers are shopping around the show to other networks. Hopefully these are all just empty threats, but really, AMC? Would it be possible for you to negotiate without creating endless drama? Or are we going to have to wait two years this time for a new season? Just, ugh. On a more uplifting note, check out what we think Breaking Bad would look like on other networks here.

Has Lucy Liu ever had a role that doesn't kick ass? Liu is joining Southland's fourth season. A great addition to an already flawless cast, and hopefully (but not likely) she will bring some much-deserved attention to the show.

Apparently everyone everywhere thinks Ashley sucks, because The Bachelorette finale had the worst ratings out of all of the show's past finales. Surprise! America doesn't like whiny girls with low self-esteem and their Kat Von D-wannabe sisters.

Grimm's EP Todd Milliner is trying to distance the show from the "fairy tale trend," saying, "it's so not about the fairy tale." Definitely a good move on his part. (I wouldn't want to be associated with Once Upon a Time, either.)

John Corbett is returning to Parenthood for a multi-episode arc. Which means drama, drama, drama for everyone on that show. Sounds good to me!

I'm trying not to get my hopes up about this one, but Peter Berg & Co. are currently writing a Friday Night Lights movie script. You. Guys. What if everyone came back for the movie? Like Saracen and Street and everyone?? I almost can't handle it.

The Office employees just can't stop reproducing, and it's starting to gross me out -- someone else will be pregnant when the show returns. It's obviously going to be Angela, right? Guesses in the comments, if you please.
