We know you want to go straight from The Walking Dead to Talking Dead. To hear what the actors had to say about their scenes, to see the polls and walker kills of the week, even to experience Chris Hardwick’s awkward nerd comedy.
But that’s what you want. AMC wants you to watch its new Breaking Bad spinoff Better Call Saul. So they’re sandwiching it between the mid-season premiere of The Walking Dead and Talking Dead.

Chris Hardwick confirmed the shuffle in a recent tweet. The Walking Dead will air at 9 p.m. ET/PT as usual. But for February 8 only, Talking Dead will be delayed one hour so AMC can show the premiere of Better Call Saul, which features the attorney from Breaking Bad Saul Goodman, portrayed by Bob Odenkirk, at 10 p.m. ET/PT. Talking Dead will air at 11 p.m. ET/PT.
The next weekend things will go back to normal, with Talking Dead airing at 10 p.m. ET/PT immediately following The Walking Dead. Better Call Saul will move to a Monday, 10 p.m. ET/PT timeslot on February 9.
