It's a big TV night with the penultimate episode of Breaking Bad, the Emmy Awards, the Dexter finale, and a Bears-Steelers game with major fantasy football implications possibly just for me. So we went back into the mental_floss archives to find our favorite stories related to the shows up for awards tonight and will share those sporadically for the next six hours. If you're looking for entertainment between commercials or don't actually watch television, we've got you covered.

I'll leave you with my favorite Emmy fact: In 1987, The Facts of Life was nominated for an Emmy for Outstanding Achievement in Hairstyling.
