TV’s Most Dynamic Duos: Presented by Paley Center for Media 9 p.m., Channel 5

TV history is dotted with great twosomes, be they couples, siblings, friends, or sparring partners. “Good Morning America” host Robin Roberts fronts this two-hour clip show that looks at 30 famous pairs, including Johnny Carson and Ed McMahon, Laverne and Shirley, Beavis and Butthead (pictured), and Cliff and Clair Huxtable. Cameron and Mitchell of “Modern Family” represent for the contemporary landscape. “Dynamic Duos” also reunites a few to reminisce about their days doing the TV pas de deux, including George Wendt and John Ratzenberger, barflies Norm and Cliff from “Cheers.”


Breaking Bad 10 p.m. AMC

It’s time to tie up those niggling loose ends on the final episode of 2012. That those loose ends have pulses does not seem to ruffle the increasingly power mad Walt. Lydia on the other hand is, not to put too fine a point on it, freaking out. In the most calm way imaginable, as befitting this stillest and most deliberate of shows. It’s going to be a long wait for the final eight.
