There's good news and there's bad news for Mad Men fans.
AMC has officially given the green light to a fifth season of the adman drama, the network announced Tuesday. But ongoing negotiations with series creator Matthew Weiner will push the show's return to early 2012.

AMC made the announcement as a Deadline.com report surfaced about Weiner's prolonged renegotiations with Lionsgate, which produces Mad Men. The latest sticking points in the proposed contract...
If Bethenny Frankel has learned one thing over the last few years of rising stardom, it's how to get what you want in life. She says her latest book, A Place of Yes, is for the fans who constantly ask her, "How did you get there?"
"Twenty years ago I wanted to be an actress and I didn't think I was that great at it and said, 'I wish I could just be myself.' Twenty years later I'm being myself for a living," Frankel tells TVGuide.com.
Donald Trump's attempt to illustrate the ease with which a U.S. citizen can obtain his or her birth certificate was trumped up.
A document released to Newsmax on Monday that Trump claimed was his birth certificate actually isn't. Instead, it appears to be a hospital form referred to as a "certificate of birth," according to the blog Politico. The difference:...
Alan Cumming has a clone. What other explanation is there, really, for how he can simultaneously play an integral part on The Good Wife, travel the world with a cabaret act, star in movies and stage productions, host PBS' Masterpiece Mystery! — oh, and do enough charitable work to be honored by the U.K. with an OBE (Officer of the Order of the British Empire) citation. "I like to stay busy, try different things, mix and match," acknowledges the exuberant Scottish actor. "I'm quite good at multitasking!"
The clone theory works for Robert and Michelle King, the married cocreators of the sophisticated, deeply satisfying sophomore CBS drama about love, law and politics in Chicago.
Has 38-year-old Sarah Braverman (Lauren Graham) finally found her calling? It would appear so, when the play she recently penned generates interest from a theater producer played by Richard Dreyfuss.
"It was really our good fortune," says Parenthood executive producer Jason Katims of having the Oscar winner join the family drama for the last four episodes of the season.

What a clusterfudge, indeed.
Showtime's She-House kicked off its third season, and things are just not looking good for Nurse Jackie...the person. Which is great for Nurse Jackie, the show.
Picking up seconds after last season's finale, Jackie was in full spin mode to throw her hubby and best gal pal O'Hara off the scent of her pill-popping, narcotic-snorting ways. But for all the fibs she fed them (convincingly, natch), there was no stopping one major truth from coming out after her husband, Kevin, still miffed about Jackie's financial fumblings, paid a visit to All Saints hospital.
To hear Timothy Olyphant tell it, playing speak-softly-and-carry-a-big-Glock Deputy U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens on Justified is like shooting fish in a proverbial barrel. "I hesitate to say this, but I find the acting to be a piece of cake," he confesses. "Good writing is always pretty easy to do. Bad writing is hard to act, hard to memorize, hard to figure out what the f--- you're doing. When it's well written, it gives you a lot of room to play."
It's clear to the nearly four million Oly-fans who tune in to FX's adaptation of crime-novel mastermind Elmore Leonard's work each week that everybody involved is having a blast. "Elmore doesn't know how to write anything that's not cool," Olyphant raves of the Get Shorty/Be Cool/Out of Sight author. "When it really cooks, it's just a great job."
Cheers to Chris Parnell for his endearing guest turn on Mad Love.

The SNL veteran guested on CBS' freshman sitcom as a small-town cop, Dennis Barrett, who pulls over Connie (Judy Greer) for speeding. She initially flirts with him to try and get out of the ticket but is eventually charmed by his winning personality. Parnell and Greer have history — they costarred in ABC's underrated gem Miss Guided and both provide voices on FX's animated spy spoof Archer — and they developed a surprisingly potent chemistry in only a few scenes. Thankfully, we haven't seen the last of Parnell on Mad Love — he'll be back for another episode next month.

Get ready for a major format tweak: Dancing With the Stars is planning a Classical Theme Week in early April. "It's quite ballsy to do two hours of classical music in primetime," says executive producer Conrad Green, who is looking for ways to keep the competition fresh in its twelfth season.
The classical twist will be a big change. For that one week, the two spiral ballroom staircases will disappear, making room for a 38-piece orchestra playing selections along the lines of "Beethoven's 5th." "We're rebuilding the whole upstage area to accommodate all those musicians," says Green.
