Vince Young was too inconsistent to win the Buffalo Bills' backup quarterback job, so now the team is giving Tarvaris Jackson a shot. The Bills shuffled backup quarterbacks Monday by completing a deal to acquire Jackson in a trade with Seattle. They then cut Young. The moves coincided with the Seahawks' deeming Jackson expendable after naming rookie Russell Wilson their starter, and it came two days after Young struggled in his bid to lock up the No. 2 job in a 38-7 exhibition loss to Pittsburgh.

As Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis open their new movie,"The Campaign," this weekend, they're trying to woo a filmgoing audience that has been voting - with its feet - against comedies this season. Nearly all of their fellow big-name comedians have struggled at the box office recently. Vince Vaughn and Ben Stiller bombed with "The Watch" two weeks ago. Adam Sandler, as close to a golden boy this comedic century has seen, flopped in June with the gross-out father-son pic "That's My Boy," his second consecutive disappointment after last year's "Jack & Jill.

Over the course of five seasons, AMC's meth-dealing drama "Breaking Bad" has gradually built a devoted following of passionate fans -- including Rolling Stones legend Keith Richards. Tuesday on "Conan," creator Vince Gilligan said he'd "heard through the grapevine" that the famously resilient guitarist is an admirer of the Emmy-winning series. Conan O'Brien suggested that Richards, who certainly knows a thing or two about living dangerously, would fit right in to the "Breaking Bad" universe.

Loyal viewers of "Breaking Bad"know that we bid adios to drug kingpin Gus Fring in "Face Off,"the final episode of the series' slow burn of a fourth season (and anyone not yet up to that episode should quit reading now). Series creator Vince Gilligan and his writing team had effectively, and with great reluctance, signed El Pollo Hermano's death warrant a year earlier in the Season 3 finale.

So there I am, excited by the Kings finally winning the Stanley Cup, when I change channels to watch "Monday Night Raw. " And my night got even better, as the chairman of the board, Vincent Kennedy McMahon, opened the show. You see, one of the things that made the WWE great back in the old Attitude days was its unpredictable nature. The show was (and still is) live, and with characters like the Rock, Stone Cold Steve Austin, Mankind and DX, you never really knew what was going to happen next.

From Indianapolis -- The biggest man in the Super Bowl yawns, a gaping chasm of a yawn, and it's as if all the air in the hotel conference room is sucked up under his backward camouflage baseball cap. It's 8:30 a.m. and, clearly, the biggest man in the Super Bowl has just climbed out of bed, his eyes clouded and his face unshaven and his belly bouncing through a tight red T-shirt pulled over his saggy gym shorts. Vince Wilfork, the New England Patriot who hauls at least 350 unruly pounds around on his bulging 6-foot-2 frame, has us right where he wants us. "In the locker room ... we always joke and jive about who is the best athlete," he said Thursday.
