‘Breaking Bad’ makes ‘Final Jeopardy’


ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — The “Breaking Bad” train keeps rolling despite the show ending last year.

Tuesday night’s “Final Jeopardy!” answer referenced the Emmy Award-winning show and the Albuquerque Journal.

The clue: “He received a real obituary in the Albuquerque Journal in 2013 noting his ‘long battle with lung cancer.’ ”

The answer — or question — of course is “Who is Walter White?”

Only one contestant of the three got it right.

Last year, Albuquerque science teacher Dave Layman and a group of friends wrote a short obit for White after he was killed in the series finale, and placed the obit in an ad in the Journal . The obit went viral and the papers became collector’s items.

The TV show thrust the Duke City into the spotlight and added to the city’s tourism.

The “Breaking Bad” spinoff show “Better Call Saul” is set to premiere in February.
