Pour yourself an Old Fashioned: Don Draper is back. AMC is set to announce this morning that Mad Men will return for its sixth season on Sunday, April 7 at 9/8c with a two-hour season premiere. The show will then move to its regular time, 10/9c, the following week.

The time jump "at this point has been such a great story engine for the show," he says. "I love writing that first episode as if the audience knows everything that has happened, and watching them piece it in their head. It's an elliptical experience."

But Irene Adler isn't the only Sherlock Holmes character we'd love to see pop up on CBS' Elementary, in which Jonny Lee Miller stars as the titular sleuth, now a recovering addict and consultant for the NYPD whose Watson (Lucy Liu) is Sherlock's "sober companion."
Will Mad Men become the first drama to five-peat? Can anyone beat Bryan Cranston and Claire Danes? We'll find out Sunday at the 64th Primetime Emmy Awards. But for now, let's make our best educated guesses at who will walk away with the big prizes. Check out the list of nominees, make your picks and see if they match up with ours.
