Mad Men: Meet Lou Avery, the Most Hated Man on Television

In just a few brief scenes, Mad Men's Lou Avery has become one of the most hated characters on TV.

After taking over as Sterling Cooper & Partners' creative director in the wake of Don Draper's meltdown and suspension, Lou (Allan Havey), quickly made his presence felt. Although Lou isn't bogged down by a host of personal problems like Don (Jon Hamm) is, he's a bit of a square and lacks Don's creative spark, which almost instantly put him at odds with Draper protégé Peggy (Elisabeth Moss). Making matters worse...read more

Mad Men: Where We Left Off and What's Ahead in the Final Season

The times are always a-changin' on Mad Men

But as the AMC drama kicks off the first half of its final season (Sunday, 10/9c), the show's focus will be on how much (or how little) the characters have grown during the near-decade viewers have been following them. "[This season] is about the consequences in life and if change is possible," creator Matthew Weiner says. "There is a real growth over this last season from what are the material concerns of your life to what are the immaterial concerns."

Last season focused on ad man Don Draper (Jon Hamm) repeating the mistakes of his past with even more serious consequences. Although Don seems to be truly committed to doing things differently in the early going of the new season, will that make a difference? In other words: Is true change possible, or is it the attempt to change that matters?

"That is the question," Weiner says...read more

Weekend TV: Mad Men, Nurse Jackie, Bletchley Return

And so the unnecessarily long goodbye begins for AMC's breakout, breakthrough signature series Mad Men, its final 14 hours being unconscionably broken into two halves over two years, starting Sunday at 10/9c. (Yes, it worked for Breaking Bad, but this isn't that kind of show.) While prolonging the inevitable, and potentially blunting whatever narrative momentum still exists in a most inelegant and desperate-seeming way, it's no wonder the often dazzling opening episode — titled "Time Zones," in a nod to the firm's now-bicoastal focus — is so preoccupied with time.

Mad Men Stars Share Behind-the-Scenes Photos as Matthew Weiner Previews the Final Season

Jon Hamm's Don Draper has never been an easy man to like, much less love — and Mad Men's previous season saw him burning nearly every bridge in his life, with his partners, his wife, even his daughter. But with just 14 episodes left to find Don's (un)happy ending, notoriously evasive creator/showrunner Matthew Weiner sat down with us in his spacious, well-appointed Los Angeles office to discuss the future of Sterling Cooper & Partners, the pressure of writing the finale — and the possibility of a spinoff. read more

Mad Men: 8 Burning Questions About Season 6

Grab your fedora and pour yourself an Old Fashioned — Mad Men is back.

After weeks of speculation over the meaning of teaser trailers and (possibly) Easter egg-filled posters, the AMC drama launches its sixth — and likely penultimate — season with a two-hour premiere (Sunday, 9/8c). Season 5 ended with Don (Jon Hamm) giving in to the acting desires of his new bride Megan (Jessica Paré) and helping her get a part in one of the agency's commercials. As Don literally and figuratively left Megan behind at the soundstage to seek solace in a whiskey glass, he was approached by a woman at the bar who asked, "Are you alone?"

Exclusive Mad Men Season 6 trailer: "The next thing will be better"

While we've pondered Don's response to that query in the intervening months, we've also crafted a few more burning questions about what might be ahead for the men and women of Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce (and Peggy!) this season. After the jump, creator Matthew Weiner and the cast give us their best answers... read more

Exclusive: Jimmy Kimmel's Head Writers Give the Backstory to This Year's Emmy Gags

When Jimmy Kimmel decided to pull a prank on Twitter during Sunday night's 64th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards, Tracy Morgan didn't hesitate to help out. Actually, he was more than willing: He suggested taking his shirt off for the bit — something Kimmel (probably wisely) decided to nix.

Morgan wasn't the only one who quickly answered Kimmel's call for help with this year's awards show. Stars from Girls' Lena Dunham and Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul to singer Josh Groban and the reality emcees who butchered the Emmys as hosts five years ago all went beyond the call of duty. Jimmy Kimmel Live! co-head writers Molly McNearney (who in her spare time is also Kimmel's fiancée) and Gary Greenberg gave TV Guide Magazine some exclusive tidbits on how this year's Emmy laughs came together... read more
