The Weekend Playlist: Mad Men, VICE, Vegas' New Night and Melissa McCarthy on SNL

Jon Hamm

It's only natural for AMC's Mad Men to be consumed with thoughts of mortality as it heads further into the turbulent late '60s in its sixth and reportedly next-to-last season of existence. A year ago, the central set piece in the premiere was a surprise birthday party. This time, it's a similarly eventful wake. And that's not the only way in which Sunday's two-hour opener (9/8c), written by series creator Matthew Weiner, drives the death-comes-to-us-all theme home with such sledgehammer relentlessness and obviousness that for the first time, I began to think maybe it is time for this beautifully crafted series to start thinking about giving up the ghost. There's no denying the importance of a show that manages to win four well-deserved best-drama Emmys in its first four times at bat — I didn't hesitate to include Mad Men among the Top 10 in a recent "60 Greatest Dramas of All Time" package in TV Guide Magazine. But does it have to be this self-important?

Ask Matt: NCIS' "Red" Team, Top of the Lake, Gays on Days, More

Question: Are you as I stumped as I am about what makes the NCIS Red Team unique? In last week's episode of NCIS: LA, there was a moment when they were trying to tell a Mexican gunman to put his weapon down and none of them could speak Spanish. Which is odd given they are suppose to be a very mobile unit that goes anywhere, you would think they would be well versed in multiple languages. I was under the impression they were going to be NCIS' version of Seal Team Six. As for casting, the only one of the team that made an impression on me was the Aussie agent Claire Keats (Gillian Alexy). I still think Kelli Giddish would have been a better choice for the lead. Just my thoughts. — Leon

Question: I'm thrilled that Veronica Mars fans will be getting a long-awaited movie. I have a few questions related to the Kickstarter campaign that made it possible: 1) Were you surprised that the goal of $2 million was reached in only 24 hours given the ratings challenges the show always faced as a TV series? 2) There was some controversy about whether asking fans to fund the project instead of having the studio fund it was ...

Ask Matt: The New Gay Normal, Last Resort, Revolution, Vegas, More

Question: With the introduction this year of new comedies like the promising The New Normal and the dreadful Partners featuring prominent characters who are gay, I was wondering what you think of the current state of gay characters represented on TV. In some ways while I am thrilled to see more representation of the gay community on television, I have to admit I was disheartened by the same stereotypical, flamboyant gay characters once again being represented. Haven't we moved past this? I do think we have some very positive portrayals today in shows like Glee and Grey's Anatomy, but this just seems like a step backwards. What are your thoughts? — Rob

Is CBS' Vegas a Safe Bet or a Big Gamble?

Dennis Quaid and Michael Chiklis

CBS' new drama Vegas has made a lot of headlines by putting its money on Dennis Quaid, who's making his debut on series television. But is the network also taking a bit of a gamble?

Fall Preview: Get scoop on all of this year's must-watch new shows

Quaid plays real-life rancher-turned-sheriff Ralph Lamb, who begrudgingly agrees to police 1960s Las Vegas against Michael Chiklis' Vincent Savino and other mobsters who are trying to get a foothold in the casinos. Although the drama is built on a CBS-friendly, case-of-the-week model, it's also a set in the past. And last season's The Playboy Club and Pan Am are non-living proof that period pieces can struggle to find an audience.

Executive producer Nicholas Pileggi, the man behind such mob stories as Goodfellas and Casino, isn't worried. "This is a fascinating period," he tells TVGuide.com... read more
