AMC-TV says that “Breaking Bad” spinoff, “Better Call Saul,” will debut in February, The Associated Press reports.

The network recently released a clip of sleazy attorney Saul Goodman, played by Bob Odenkirk, arguing about the importance of always having a lawyer. After the clip the word “February” is shown.

Previously, AMC said “Better Call Saul” would premiere in November.

The series will follow Goodman as he defends drug lords, petty criminals and those allegedly injured in minor traffic accidents.

In “Breaking Bad,” Odenkirk played the lawyer of meth lord Walter White, played by Bryan Cranston.

The New Mexico Film Office said in May that “Better Call Saul” would be filmed in Albuquerque.

Sofia Vergara, talking for the first time about her new beau “True Blood” heartthrob and Mt. Lebanon native Joe Manganiello, told TV’s “EXTRA,” “You know I'm just having a great time and it's a special time in my life and I'm trying not to think too much about it and it's something very new so we will see what happens.”

The two have been spending a lot of time together, they were even spotted in Miami where he met her family. “EXTRA” asked whether Vergara’s mom approves, her response, “What is there not to approve of.”

Lynyrd Skynyrd is getting the tribute treatment.

An all-star cast of performers will salute the seminal Southern rock band during the taping of “One More for the Fans! Celebrating the Songs & Music of Lynyrd Skynyrd,” the AP reports.

The Nov. 12 concert will feature performances from Gregg Allman, Alabama, Charlie Daniels, Peter Frampton, John Hiatt, Jamey Johnson, Cheap Trick and more. The Fox Theatre event in Atlanta features a band put together by Grammy Award-winning bandleader Don Was. The concert will be taped and released at a later date.

Tickets go on sale Monday through the Fox Theatre box office.

Skynyrd has some history with the Fox. The band recorded its 1976 live album, “One More From the Road,” there as part of a campaign to save the historic building.

Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort of “The Fault in Our Stars” rode a victorious wave at the Teen Choice Awards.

The actors were honored with several prizes at Sunday’s fan-favorite extravaganza, including choice drama movie actor and breakout movie star for Elgort and choice drama and action movie actress for “Divergent” star Woodley. The pair was also awarded the surfboard-shaped trophy for choice movie lip-lock for their “Fault in Our Stars” smooch.

“I don’t surf or anything, so I guess I’m gonna put this on my wall,” said Elgort of the unique prize.

Demi Lovato kicked off the Teen Choice Awards with a performance and a win. After belting out her tune “Really Don’t Care,” the singer-actress surfed away with awards for choice summer song and choice female summer music star. Lovato used her acceptance speech to pump up the crowd of mostly roaring teenagers.

“I want you guys to know that instead of just getting up here and saying a speech, every single one of you deserves to have a happy and incredible life, so be the best you can be in everything because your dreams can come true if you work hard for them,” beamed Lovato.

Teen Choice Awards co-hosts Tyler Posey of “Teen Wolf” and Sarah Hyland of “Modern Family” said 165 million votes were cast online for the 16th annual awards, which honor movies, television, music, comedy, sports, fashion and Web stars in such silly categories as choice hottie, smile and villain, which went to “The Hunger Games” heavy Donald Sutherland.

Kings of Leon drummer Nathan Followill was injured in a bus accident Saturday night, the group announced Sunday on Facebook, People reports.

"The band was en route to their hotel after a show in Boston when a pedestrian jumped in front of their tour bus, causing it to stop short," the post reads. "Nathan is being treated for broken ribs, but is doing well."

The rockers, who are hitting the road for their Mechanical Bull Tour, had to postpone Sunday's show in Saratoga Springs, N.Y. The gorup is scheduled to play First Niagara Pavilion in Burgettstown Aug. 29.

Followill, 35, has been tweeting updates to concerned fans.

"Thank you for all of the get well soons. I'm a little banged up but will be back better than ever," he wrote Sunday, later sharing a photo from his hospital bed.
