Breaking Bad was the hottest TV show this season, according to Nielsen’s Twitter ratings, The Wall Street Journal reports.

USA Today and Variety report that Bryan Cranston won the Drama Desk Award for outstanding actor in a play for his performance as President Lyndon Johnson in All the Way on Broadway.

Newsday thinks Bryan Cranston should and will win the Tony Award for best actor in a play. Entertainment Weekly agrees that Cranston is “a safe bet to win for his Broadway debut.”

Gold Derby calls Betsy Brandt the “underrated heroine” of Breaking Bad.

• According to the Orange County Register and Rotten Tomatoes, Breaking Bad‘s complete series became available on DVD and Blu-ray this week, in a version that has all the bonus material of the set that was packaged in a miniature barrel but comes instead in a standard slipcase.

TVLine reports that Dean Norris will play Benjamin Franklin in History’s six-part miniseries, Sons of Liberty.

Variety says that Netflix will debut Bojack Horseman, an animated series featuring the voice of Aaron Paul (who’s also an executive producer), on Aug. 22. USA Today has a trailer for the series.

Backstage highlights nine great audition tapes, including Aaron Paul’s audition for Breaking Bad, “one of the most beloved television shows of recent years.”

CarterMatt names Breaking Bad worthy of a best drama Emmy nomination, calling the final season “a triumph, and one of the best things on TV in the past decade.”

According to Broadway.com, Bryan Cranston was “welcomed to the theater community by legendary restaurant Sardi’s,” which surprised him with a portrait of himself for their wall of fame.

Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele tell Vulture it would be “a dream” to get Bob Odenkirk on their eponymous show on Comedy Central.

TV Overmind chooses Bob Odenkirk as one of the acting MVPs of last week’s episode of FX’s Fargo.
