WARNING: The following story contains spoilers from the season premiere of Mad Men
The third-season premiere of Mad Men took the exploration of repressed art director Salvatore Romano's complicated private life to a whole new level.
While Sal (Bryan Batt) is out of town on business with Don (Jon Hamm), the two men wine and dine a couple of stewardesses. As the drinks flow, so does the sexual tension, and in typical Mad Men fashion, Don takes his girl back to his room. And Sal sleeps it off, right? Not so fast....
Our next-to-last episode of the season presents Brenda and Fritz with the unexpected problem of providing constant supervision for their imperfectly behaved teenage niece, Charlie, while continuing to do their jobs. This problem, which will be almost too familiar for most of our audience, challenges our heroic couple in ways both small and enormous.
Exactly how much responsibility does one assign to a child? How should a kid be raised? What are ...
David Letterman, Glenn Beck
It's been a big year for incendiary talk-show chatter. Sometimes a host gets viewers irate. Sometimes it's the guest. Sometimes that guest is even the president of the United States. Here's a look back at some of the comments this year that made people mad.
1) Who: Glenn Beck on Fox News' Fox and Friends
What he said: On the July 28th edition, Beck said President Obama has "a deep-seated hatred for white people or the white culture." He added, "I'm not saying that he doesn't like white people. I'm saying that he has a problem. This guy is, I believe, a racist."
The fallout: Geico and Lawyers.com have pulled advertising from Beck's show, The Glenn Beck Program.
Hailey Glassman and Jon Gosselin
A month after hitting St. Tropez hand-in-hand with Jon Gosselin, Hailey Glassman calls the Jon & Kate Plus 8 patriarch her "first love" and denies having had a hand in the Gosselins' split.
The 22-year-old, daughter of Kate Gosselin's plastic surgeon, says her friendship with the reality dad began when he stayed at her parents' house and it soon evolved into something more.
Taken or not? Jon says he's "single — per se"
"He was living in my house, the person ...

Vincent Kartheiser and Elisabeth Moss, Mad Men
In case you've been living under a rock, Mad Men returns Sunday night, and the critically acclaimed, multiple Emmy-nominated AMC drama wastes very little time sucking viewers back into its slick, dazzling world.
But as satisfying as the Season 3 premiere is (yes, we've seen it; no, we won't spoil it... much), Mad Men devotees hoping for answers to all their burning questions will be, as usual, out of luck.

What you will see is this: Don (Jon Hamm) and Sal (Bryan Batt) take a business trip to Baltimore to reassure a jumpy client. Sterling Cooper's merger with a British firm will loom large. And viewers will get resolution to that cliff-hanger announcement that Betty (January Jones) is pregnant.
What's become of Peggy (Elisabeth Moss) and Pete (Vincent Kartheiser) since she dropped her own baby bombshell, however, is clearly out of sight. But that doesn't mean it's out of mind.
"I don't think it's dead, and I don't think it will never come up again," Moss tells TVGuide.com. "But I think ...
No more scripts: Jerry O'Connell will hit the books this fall as a part-time law student, having enrolled at Los Angeles' Southwestern Law School.

Matt Rogers, There Goes the Neighborhood
In this technologically advanced age, could you handle being trapped behind a 20-foot wall without contact to the outside world? Well, eight families in a Kennesaw, Ga., neighborhood are attempting to do that in CBS' new reality series There Goes the Neighborhood (Sundays, 9/8c), which pits the clans against each other in a variety of challenges for a $250,000 prize. "It gets really dramatic because a quarter of a million dollars in Kennesaw is probably like $1.5 million in New York," host and American Idol alum Matt Rogers tells TVGuide.com. "So some of them take it personally, but that's what makes it great." Find out what's in store on this closed-off block party and get Rogers' thoughts on Paula Abdul's Idol exit.
