AMC's Mad Men has been a fan favorite and critical darling over its four seasons, and now the show's appeal is reaching into academia. Northwestern University offered a history seminar in the fall titled "Consumerism and Social Change in Mad Men America, 1960-65," while University of California Berkeley will continue its Men-inspired English course this spring.
Vive la difference! Former General Hospital baddie Ted King is cleaning up his act and moving to One Life to Live on January 21 as a struggling Parisian artist simply known as Tomas. The mystery man's last name is hush-hush for now because it'll eventually be revealed that he's related to a certain someone in Llanview. He'll also be the new love interest for Blair Cramer, the heartbreak heroine played by Kassie DePaiva. The plot: Blair jets to Paris to track down Tomas — whom she's never met — to find out why he painted a portrait of her. It's not just any portrait, but one copied from a photo taken of Blair at one of her weddings to Todd (back when Roger Howarth was playing the role...cue the Howarth rumors!).

Jackie, Brad Womack
Did the women not seem surprised that Brad Womack is the Bachelor?
Learning that Brad Womack — the Bachelor who's on Round 2 of the ABC dating competition — was this season's main man should've been a jaw-dropper for his harem. And yet when the ladies stepped out of the limos to meet him during the January 3 premiere, one after another seemed armed with a pithy remark. First contestant Chantal O'Brien even slapped the guy — which leads us to believe that either she had a heads-up about who she was about to encounter, or else ...
Holt McCallany and Catherine McCormack
Why are we so thankful for FX's new boxing drama Lights Out — a rock 'em, sock 'em respite from the midwinter doldrums? Let us count the ways.
1. Everybody loves a comeback.
We meet 40-year-old Patrick "Lights" Leary (Holt McCallany) five years after a catastrophic title bout. The consequences of that event have left him financially, physically and existentially at sea. And while a return to the ring could mean disaster on every front, McCallany notes ...
