A few more details about AMC's "Breaking Bad" spinoff, "Better Call Saul," which Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould say will stand on its own, and not be the series equivalent of a "Breaking Bad" clip show.

The 2014 66th annual Primetime Emmy Award nominations are out, and it's a mixed bag of deserving newcomers ("Silicon Valley"), surprises (Fred Armisen as best supporting actor in a comedy series for "Portlandia") and snubs (Elisabeth Moss, Tatiana Maslany, "The Good Wife.")

The first week of the Television Critics Association 2014 Summer Press Tour has had its highs and lows, and plenty of moments that stood out, ranging from a Christmas in July dinner to a clip from a new MTV series with a plot twist reporters didn't expect.

The new FX series, "The Strain," which debuts Sunday July 13, is co-created by and adapted from the book by Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan. The tale of a virus, vampires and disgusting wormy parasites has a '50s Grade-B horror movie energy and cheesiness.

In its first season, Showtime's "Masters of Sex" was one of the most impressive series on television. The first two episodes of Season 2 indicate the story of sex researchers William Masters (Michael Sheen) and Virginia Johnson (Lizzy Caplan) remains exceptionally insightful about sex, intimacy, and human nature.

The filmed-in-Portland, inspired-by-Portland satirical comedy series "Portlandia" had a very good day Thursday, as the IFC cable channel show earned six Primetime Emmy Awards nominations. Co-creators, stars, and crew members had excited responses to the show's healthy Emmy showing, even while working on the upcoming Season 5, in Portland.

Fred Armisen earns a 2014 Primetime Emmy Award nomination as outstanding supporting actor in a comedy series for his work as various nutty characters on the filmed-in-Portland IFC series, "Portlandia."
