Forget the furor over Ben Affleck as Batman for a minute and ask yourself this question:

Who should play Commission Gordon? On television? On Fox in 2014, to be specific?

The network announced last night that it has ordered Gotham straight to series. The drama will be executive produced by Bruno Heller (The Mentalist) and produced by Warner Bros. Television.

It promises to tell “the origin stories of Commissioner James Gordon and the villains that made Gotham famous.”

So... The Joker? The Riddler? Mr. Freeze? The possibilities here seem endless and possibly very entertaining.

This news, of course, comes just as ABC is premiering its own comic book-based series. Did you tune in for the Agents of SHIELD premiere?

Breaking Bayou news out of CBS:

The network has announced that it will air a two-part NCIS episode this spring that serves as a backdoor pilot to another spinoff of the successful series, this one to be set in New Orleans.

Mark Harmon as Gibbs

If picked up, the new series would then be a part of the CBS 2014-2015 schedule and produced by Gary Glasberg and Mark Harmon. It would chronicle cases from Pensacola through Mississippi, Louisiana to the Texas panhandle.

NCIS, of course, was spunoff from JAG, and it then led to the creation of NCIS: Los Angeles, which is the second highest-rated show on television.

NCIS Season 11, meanwhile, kicks off tonight. Watch a preview below:

Breaking Bad took viewers to New Hampshire this week - and it also showcased a new side to Walter White.

He's emaciated, he's no longer in control and, for the first time in ages, he's simply... defeated.

Yes, in the wake of the craziest episode ever, AMC aired one of the quietest, as fans spent a lot of time with a Walter White we hardly recognized.

It will focus on Bob Odenkirk's hilariously shady lawyer character Saul Goodman under the working title Better Call Saul, according to reports.
