“Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2” nailed the #1 spot at movies this weekend. “Prisoners” took home 2nd, “Rush” took 3rd, “Baggage Claim” was 4th and Joseph Gordon-Levitt's movie, “Don Jon” came in 5th.

“Breaking Bad” is DONE and the props are up for sale! For example, the Tuco's Grill is going for $8,200, Jesse's Toyota is going for $5,500 and the teddy bear is going for $2,100 (probably all way higher by now). Check out all the items from screenbid.com.

Lindsay Lohan is working on a reality show for Oprah's OWN channel and it sounds like Oprah had to bring her down a peg when Lindsay started becoming difficult; no-showing, being a diva and most of her old antics. Oprah went to her mom's house and told Lindsay to shape up or she could kiss her $2 Million paycheck goodbye. It sounds like the Walter White/ Jesse Pinkman relationship in “Breaking Bad!” Sorry, still on that Netflix binge.

Speaking of “Breaking Bad,” the finale is Sunday night and sources say it's expected to attract around 8 million viewers. It's a HUGE number for cable but still wouldn't top “The Sopranos” finale in 2007, 11.9 million. Also, “MASH” still holds the record with 105.9 Million.

Remember fire drills in school? I think that was the only kind of drill we ever had, I grew up in Ohio so tornado drills were common too. It's just so surreal to hear that schools have to do “intruder drills” now. It's just one of the many new security measures that TCAPS has put into place. Check out the full story from The TC Ticker here...

We're going just a bit south on this one. We told you last week that GVSU had to remove the huge ball sculpture because students were swinging on it naked, like Miley Cyrus in her video for “Wrecking Ball.” Well, the school has put a committee together to determine when and how to reinstall the ball. Let's face it, we don't care. I just wanted a reason to post this video from one of the GVSU students.

 

What's Up in Entertainment

Sources are telling us that Richard Gere and actress Carey Lowell are getting divorced after 11 years. That's a lifetime in Hollywood years!

A&E has canceled “Hoarders.”

O.J. Simpson just pulled off the most evil deed he's ever done. He stole cookies. “The National Enquirer” says he was caught stealing oatmeal cookies from the prison cafeteria. A guard noticed a bulge and started digging cookies out of his shirt while he stood there with a “goofy grin.” Omnomnomnom.

You know “Breaking Bad” is making some serious buzz this week and this story amplifies it. Part of last week's episode was inspired by a 16 year old fan of the show, who passed away earlier this year of cancer. Before he died, Kevin Cordasco, got to meet some of the cast and the creator, Vince Gilligan. Cordasco said he wanted to know more about Gretchen and Elliot and more about Walt's back story with them, and Gilligan delivered last week. For those of you who didn't see it, we won't explain any further, but you can find the full story and pics here.

Holy smokes! There's going to be a TV show based around Battle Creek, Michigan and the creator of “Breaking Bad,” Vince Gilligan, is part of it!! Gilligan will work with “House” creator David Shore on the police drama called “Battle Creek.” It will be centered around two detectives, one cynical and one naive, who team up to “clean up the semi-mean streets” of Battle Creek. This will debut on CBS for the 2014 – 2015 season.

Signs you're from Michigan..
These lists come out every so often but sometimes they really can be said for any state, not this one! Check out the 47 signs you're from Michigan.

Just a couple...

  • You know what a Yooper is.
  • You can easily experience at least two seasons in one day, sometimes within a few hours of each other. This usually means wearing shorts and a sweatshirt or winter coat at the same time.
  • You’ve been to an Oberon release party.
  • You go “up north” every summer, which is anywhere north of Grand Rapids. This usually means driving up I-75 and vacationing in a cabin in the woods or a cottage on the lake.
  • Someone in your family or a friend’s family have worked for or been laid off by the auto industry.
  • School was never called off in the winter unless there was at least two feet of snow but you were still hopeful the night before you might have a snow day.

One thing I've learned is NEVER mess with Bingo players! This woman did not get that message. Lucinda Piehl was charged Monday with embezzling from the non-profit Otsego County Senior Housing Association. In all, she stole $14,000 in bingo cash from games that were hosted by the OCSHA. So don't embezzle OR yell “bingo” if you don't really have a bingo.

If you're not sure about the safety of your drinking water the Grand Traverse Conservation District will be screening water for free on Monday. More info here.

If you didn't think Miley Cyrus was sexy during the VMAs then don't worry, she says she wasn't trying to be. In an interview with “Rolling Stone” she said, “If I was trying to be sexy, I could have been sexy. I can dance a lot better than I was dancing.” So there.

As a guy I'll admit there are some songs I listen to that I would die if anyone over heard, they may be a bit girly. That's why this prank is so awesome.

On the other side of things, this is sad. Benzie County Deputy had to shoot and kill a pit bull after it attacked his partner while making a drug arrest. I will always say that pit bulls are some of the most friendly dogs BUT it all comes down to the owner and it's training, like any other dog.

I've been on a dangerous “Breaking Bad” Netflix binge for about 2 weeks now as we prep for the finale. The reason? I don't want the finale to be ruined by Facebook and Twitter. Now Netflix has a way to prevent that with the site SpoilerFoiler.com. You can have Tweets involving “Breaking Bad” censored so the finale isn't ruined! Great idea!

Want in on the "Breaking Bad" club?
I don't know why it is I always get into a show when the final season is on. Seriously, if it wasn't for Netflix I would be totally out of the loop! Anyway, I'm that way with "Breaking Bad," I've never heard of it until this past summer as it comes to an end this season.

So do you want in on it and don't have Netflix? This week AMC will have a marathon leading up to the finale. Seasons 1-4 will air 8pm Wednsday the 25th to late Friday the 27th. Season 5 will start on Saturday the 28th at 11pm and run up to the finale at 9pm on the 29th.
