'Breaking Bad' at 10: How the Gamechanging Show Redefined TV's Golden Age
O say, do those meth-scented khakis yet wave o'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

Some 10 years ago today, Breaking Bad aired its first episode – and the New Golden Age of Television turned a deeper shade of blue.

It’s widely believed that the present day is the golden age of peak television, and shows such as The Americans and The Handmaid’s Tale certainly prove that notion. Unfortunately, that means shows take extra long to develop and sometimes networks have to space out their programs because there’s only so much space available.

Bomb Cyclone Leads to Theater Closures, Concert Postponements, but Broadway Remains Open

A massive winter storm slammed the East Coast on Thursday, leading to movie theater closures, travel headaches for top media and entertainment figures, and concert postponements. On the Great White Way, however, the show will go on. All Broadway shows will play as scheduled on Thursday.

Others are taking more of a wait-and-see approach. AMC Theatres, the country’s largest exhibition chain, has closed several locations in the New York City, New Jersey, and Boston areas. It is also delaying the opening of certain multiplexes while it waits for snow to be cleared.

From coastal Virginia to New England, residents are digging out from blizzard conditions in what the media has dubbed a “bomb cyclone,” a pounding mixture of snow, cold, and wind gusts that is beating a path across the region. New York City is expected to get between six and eight inches of snow, while winds are expected to hit 50 mph to 60 mph, likely causing

Gangsters, girlfriends and warrior queens: the TV to watch in 2018

Is Britannia the next Game of Thrones? Can Mulder and Scully get their goof back? Will samurai warriors seize Westworld? And could the Oj team fashion another smash with Gianni Versace? We preview the new year’s standout TV

The always excellent James Norton plays the British-raised son of a Russian mafia boss attempting to distance himself from the world of organised crime. McMafia is based on a terrific book and, if it sticks the execution, could be enormous. It has the potential to be the British version of The Americans or, better yet, The Sopranos. Such lofty comparisons might doom McMafia from the outset, but right now there’s a lot to be excited about.

PBS' Little Women Trailer Introduces Us to the New March Girls — Watch
Your first book-club recommendation for 2018 has arrived: PBS and Masterpiece have released a trailer for their upcoming adaptation of Little Women.

Critics Reveal Their Favorite Holiday TV Traditions — IndieWire Survey

Critics Reveal Their Favorite Holiday TV Traditions — IndieWire Survey
Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Tuesday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best show currently on TV?” can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: What are your winter holiday season viewing habits (that are not for work)? Do you have traditional go-to shows or movies? Are you looking forward to anything in particular?

Eric Deggans (@deggans), NPR

As I have written in the past, I’m not the kind of critic who loves holiday specials. Too often, they’re too hokey, too commercial, too weird (yes, Bill Murray, I still don’t get “A Very Murray Christmas”) or, in the case of countless Hallmark Channel movies, way too white. But I do have a few holiday media traditions, starting with my Spotify Holiday Tunes playlist, which gets fired up as
