Ratings: Football Still Rules, While Family Guy and Dexter Post Strong Showings

Family Guy

Another Sunday, another ratings win for NBC.

Sunday Night Football, featuring the New York Jets vs. the Miami Dolphins, dominated the evening, giving NBC an easy victory, with 15.9 million viewers and a 6.5 rating in the 18-to-49 demographic on a night when no new series debuted.

Fox's hourlong Family Guy posted the best showing among scripted fare, according to early Nielsen estimates, with 9.1 million and a 4.5 rating, despite dropping ...

Amazing Race's Ron and Tony: Getting Lost "Felt Like a Nightmare That Wouldn't End"

The Amazing Race

After scoring the first tickets on the first flight to London on The Amazing Race 17, Ron Kellum, 45, and Tony Stovall, 42, quickly saw their fortunes take a turn for the worst once they landed. The best friends — and self-described navigational experts — never recovered from driving in the wrong direction looking for Stonehenge and became the first team ousted from the new season. "We just kept marveling, like, how did this happen?" Ron tells TVGuide.com. "In Boston, getting to the airport, we were the only team that didn't make a wrong turn. We get to England and it's like, I don't know my right from my left!" Find out how long they were lost for, if they completed all the tasks and if they think they jinxed themselves.

Phil Keoghan: A game-changer does Amazing Race good

TVGuide.com: So where did you guys drive to? It seems like you drove to France in that time.

Gloria Stuart

Gloria Stuart, the 1930s starlet who became the oldest person ever to be nominated for an Academy Award with her career-making turn in Titanic, has died. She was 100.

Stuart died Sunday night at her West Los Angeles home, her daughter, Sylvia Thompson, told The Los Angeles Times. Stuart was diagnosed with lung cancer five years ago.

"She also was a breast cancer survivor," Thompson said, "but she just paid no attention to illness. She was a very strong woman and had other fish to fry."

Stuart turned 100 on July 4 and celebrated with Titanic director James Cameron and his wife, Titanic co-star Suzy Amis, at the "Academy Centennial Celebration with Gloria Stuart."

The actress was 87 when she starred ...

Mad Men Episode Recap: "Hands and Knees"

Vincent Kartheiser, Mad Men

 "I don't want any secrets." — Betty Draper

Betty doesn't want any new secrets in her new marriage, because she knows all too well how they destroyed her last one. Unfortunately, many other characters in the Mad Men universe — Betty's ex-husband included — haven't yet learned that lesson. Joan and Roger sweep Joan's pregnancy under the rug with a quickie abortion. Roger loses a client that could end Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce, but doesn't tell anyone. Meanwhile, Don's past as Dick Whitman costs SCDP another client and forces Pete to take a beating from Roger that he doesn't deserve.

Conversely, Lane lets his secret out of the bag when he tells his father that he's dating Toni, a Playboy Club cocktail waitress who is black. But when that announcement doesn't go over well, Lane is unable to tell anyone the real reason he's taking a leave of absence to return to London. Similarly, Don brings Faye into his circle of trust, but almost instantly regrets it.

For three-and-a-half seasons, secrets (especially Don's) have been Mad Men's stock in trade. As such, this episode borders on feeling repetitive, or at least less impactful than the show's past revelations. If anything, this episode is less about what's being hidden and more about why the characters are hiding it. The question for Don (and everyone else): Isn't honesty always the best policy? ... read more
