The Cycle | November 13, 2012
>> hi. don't mind me. i'm just reading my tv guide here, which is a little bigger than i remember it from my tv guide reading youth. they are out with their hot list for 2012 . and i'm just perusing some of my favorite shows. we've got the hot to the end, " breaking bad ." it's coming to an end. you've got "arrested development." hotly anticipated because it will be coming back in some kind of netflix form. "children's hospital", a funny show. i like that. we have another one here i can't find. and then "modern family." a hot show . hot mama. and then look at this. i can't believe this. old. says the hot wonks. apparently they did something on us. it says msnbc's new daytime talk fest proves that you can disagree without being disagreeable unless your name is s.e. cupp.
>> no, it doesn't say that. strong ratings and lively political chatter without too much finger pointing.
>> without too much finger pointing. just some.
>> just enough finger pointing.
>> i have to say i loved -- as a kid we got the guide as we called it at home and do the cheers and jeers and all that. anybody in the country wants to know what time dog the bounty hunter is on is reading about us this week. that's pretty exciting.
>> you are absolutely right, steve . i mean, i'm glad that list is actually really interesting. on point, modern family is still one of the best shows on television.
>> of course, we think it's on point. well done, tv guide .
>> you have great taste.
>> " breaking bad " is still one of the best shows on tv. when they say " breaking bad " hot to the end, i think the last season ever all time is coming next season and this year they had one of the best cliff hangers i have ever seen in television history . walter white has conquered the world, made more money than he could ever spend, he's vanquished all enemies, about to turn and walk out of the game and then his brother-in-law is on the john and he realizes who he is and fade to black , no, i need to see next season.
>> i know.
>> i'll be honest, i don't watch a lot of tv. it's either cable news for nick jr . in my household. there were two things i really liked. one is the grid. this like seeing this grid from tv guide , it gave me some very warm, fuzzy memories. right there. that brought back a lot of ferms for me. and the other thing i loved though is not only is s.e. herself in tv guide , but s.e.'s doppelganger from "snl" kate mckinnon .
>> she's on the hot list as well.
>> you're bringing other women with you.
>> or did she bring me? no one knows.
>> steve kornacki brought you.
>> steve kornacki brings everyone. the shows that i watch didn't make the list, unfortunately, like "duck dynasty," "top shot," but a show i do watch is "the newsro newsroom." i'm a consultant on the show. it's fun to watch about our industry.
>> so in a way this whole segment has been about you.
>> well, aren't they all? aren't they all? look, there i am again.
>> is there anything else in here that we could talk about that relates to s.e.?
>> i'm sure we can find something.
>> all right, steve , stop reading.
>> i was supposed to give this -- i'm supposed to read this and not this. straight ahead, something i find hot, history. s.e.'s take on the party of lincoln and the modern gop civil war , but, first, another personal favorite, seinfeld" on tv guide .
>> guess your boyfriend will have to catch the next train.
>> he's not my boyfriend.
>> he's not? interesting.
