One thing you can say about Sunday night's season finale to "Breaking Bad. " That was different. Read no further if you don't want to know what happened in the fleeting seconds of "Gliding Over All. " Or rather, what didn't happen. No one got half their face blown off. No planes exploded in mid-air. No one choked on vomit and no one stood by letting young love die. In short, for once, the waning moments of a "Breaking Bad" season finale did not add to the show's body count.

Actress Katey Sagal can be heard crooning regularly on the soundtrack of the FX drama "Sons of Anarchy," but the acting has really been a long detour from her first love, singing. And to remind people of that, she's releasing her first album in nine years, titled "Covered. " Back in her pre-"Married ... With Children" days, Sagal had a budding singing career, performing as a backup performer with Tanya Tucker and Bob Dylan, according to Billboard.

Editor's note: If you are planning to view Wednesday night's episode of "Lost," stop reading. -- Excerpts of a question-and-answer session with Rebecca Mader, who plays Charlotte Staples Lewis on ABC's "Lost." How did the producers break it to you that Charlotte was going to die? I've known since June of '08, because that's when we negotiate contracts between seasons. Originally when I started on the show in August 2007, I was only supposed to do eight episodes. I ended up doing 20. I was on the show a lot longer than I thought I was going to be. A lot of it has to do with the writers strike.

The scene was a car wash fundraiser, replete with cheerleaders, jocks and a few nerds, the kind of thing you might see on high school dramas such as "90210" or "Friday Night Lights." But then, Mercedes (Amber Riley) threw a rock through a car's windshield, and the music began. Lithe cheerleaders stopped soaping tires and started dancing.

Anthony Bourdain has never been one to shy away from speaking his mind, and he's not changing a thing as he makes the transition from Travel Channel, his home for the last seven years. That includes tearing into his former bosses when he feels they deserve it. As Bourdain rings down the curtain on the final season of his long-running show, "No Reservations," he ripped the channel's executives in a particularly hostile post on his personal Tumblr page. The source of his anger is a decision to insert post-production product placement of a Cadillac into one of the final episodes of "No Reservations" without consulting the writer and chef first, making it appear that Bourdain was endorsing the car by riding around in one. " After the first airing of the commercial, I let the network know of my extreme displeasure," Bourdain wrote.

When Jimmy Fallon takes over "The Tonight Show" from Jay Leno in February 2014, he's not just getting an upgrade in his start time, he's also getting a billing promotion. As first pointed out by the Huffington Post, Fallon's "Tonight Show" will be titled "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. " That's a throwback to late-night king Johnny Carson's reign, when the show was titled "The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson. " Both hosts to take over the show after Carson, Leno and Conan O'Brien, got a less prestigious "With" in the title.

Kids, in the spring of 2014, "How I Met Your Mother" aired its final episode, and part of its legacy may be its knack for long-running gags.  See, the genius behind the CBS comedy wasn't just the nonlinear storytelling, but the writers' way of weaving inside jokes and recurring story lines to sometimes deliver a humorous slap to the face stronger than Marshall's storied slap of a thousand suns. With "How I Met Your Mother" having come to a close Monday and Ted (Josh Radnor) having revealed how he meets the titular mother of his two children (and what shockingly happened after that)
