TV viewing changed once again for me last night with the start of the 2013-14 NFL season.  Thursday night games now take priority of shows like Big Brother .  But don't think for a nanosecond, that I didn't tune in to watch [SPOILER] Amanda kick rocks.  She came across a bit better than I'd have thought in her post-eviction interview but she still goes down as one of the more despicable house guests in recent memory.  I'm sure she'll be asked back in the event there's an all-star version or another whacked out returning guests as coaches version.  I guess I'm rooting for McRae as he's the only one left who doesn't make my skin crawl.  I really hope Andy is the next to go, especially after reading THIS: 

"Andy Herren is 26 years old. He was born in Aurora, IL and currently lives in Chicago, IL. His occupation is a College Professor of Public Speaking. He loves Skittles and Starburst and being friendly." 

Julie Chen sat down with ET and had this to say about who she thinks has the best chance to win Big Brother :

"ETonline: In a few weeks, BB15 will crown a winner. Who do you think has the best chance to win at this point?

Chen: Spencer [laughs]. You know, he's never really had a target on this back and people kid of forget he's there. They don't think he's annoying, they don't think he's a jerk, they don't think he's a threat in this game. He's basically skating on by to the finals. But it all depends on who he's sitting next to because, unfortunately for him, I don't think he's got the respect of the jury. I'm not sure think they'll give someone $500,000 for not really doing anything this whole summer." 

Big Brother 's Aaryn Gries' mom has offered up her apologies on behalf of her racist daughter. 

I'm glad to see that the piss poor dial placement didn't deter people from watching FXX's It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia and The League on Wednesday night.  According to TVLine, " Sunny's Season 9 opener drew 760,000 total viewers, with 648K landing in the 18-49 sweet spot (or 80 percent of its previous premiere’s delivery in that demo). In Adults 18-34, the comedy enjoyed 85 percent retention, while with Men 18-34 it in fact improved (by 8 percent).

"The League‘s Season 5 'kick-off' built on its lead-in — maybe as more people frantically tracked down FXX on the dial? — by drawing 790,000 total viewers, with 687K in 18-49 (dipping just 6 percent from Season 4 premiere) and 540K in 18-34 (down 8 percent)."

Vulture tries to predict what might happen on the last 4 episodes of Breaking Bad  based on each episode's title.  I did NOT read this as I don't want to be swayed or have ideas put in my head.  Read at your own risk.

Here are 12 writer-proposed Breaking Bad  story lines that never made it on the air.

American Idol  winner Ruben Studdard will be on the next cycle of The Biggest Loser .  Evidently he weighs 462 pounds.

Alec Baldwin will be hosting a Friday night talk show on MSNBC.  It is being described as a current events and culture talk show to air Friday nights at 10 p.m. ET. The show is modeled after Baldwin's podcast, which is fantastic.  The network said the show will begin in October.
