Bryan Cranston Begrudgingly Enjoys Swamp People

Breaking Bad is the best, etc., but it's not the most popular show on cable. Star Bryan Cranston is none too pleased. "It's still half the number of people that Swamp People gets," he tells the Fresno Beehive. (Depends on the week, but he's roughly correct.) "I was curious to see what Swamp People was all about. I found it and watched Swamp People," he says. "I thought no wonder six million people watch Swamp People. These are grown men in the South who catch fish with their hands. And I thought, that's pretty badass." No one tell him about Hillbilly Handfishing.
