'Better Call Saul,' 'Breaking Bad' spinoff, coming in November

AMC's "Breaking Bad" spinoff, "Better Call Saul," will premiere sometime in November.

"Better Call Saul" centers on sleazy attorney Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk) before he met and worked for Walter White. AMC did not give an exact date for the premiere. 

The network Saturday announced more specific premiere dates for some of its other shows at the Television Critics Association winter tour in Pasadena.

The seventh season of "Mad Men" will debut at 9 p.m. April 13. AMC is splitting the 14-episode final season into two halves, like it did with "Breaking Bad."

The new Revolutionary War spy drama "Turn" will have its 90-minute premiere at 8 p.m. April 6, the same night as the Season 4 debut of "Game of Thrones" on HBO. (Read more about "Turn" here.)

"Halt and Catch Fire," a new drama about electronics pioneers during the personal computing boom of the early 1980s, will premiere sometime in June, while the western “Hell on Wheels" will return for its fourth season sometime this summer.

The unscripted series "Game of Arms" will premiere at 9 p.m. Feb. 25, followed by May launches of Season 3 of "Small Town Security" and Season 2 of "Freakshow."

The network also announce that it has renewed "Talking Dead," the companion show for "The Walking Dead," for a fifth season. Both of those shows, along with "Comic Book Men," begin to close out their current seasons with midseason premieres on Feb. 9.Want more?

Seems like an obvious choice, but she was just so fun and engaged with the crowd (and the storms). Even her songs I wasn’t familiar with were exciting...
