Watercooler: Is The Nine Lives of Chloe King the Cat's Meow?

Skyler Samuels

Hello, kitty!

ABC Family let its cat-powered new teen drama out of the bag last night and from the fun, fast-paced pilot, we're inclined to say that Pretty Little Liars (which kicked off its second season in killer style an hour earlier) has quite the fitting companion piece. It's not PLL-level addictive yet, but it's far from a runt.

Starring the immensely charismatic Skyler Samuels, Nine Lives of Chloe King tells the tail, er, tale of a quirky teen who... read more

Question: I'd argue that Mad Men's recently wrapped fourth season was perhaps its finest to date, but I'm disappointed with the way the writers treated Betty throughout the season. Betty was easily one of my favorite characters during the first three years of the show, and I was thrilled when January Jones finally received an overdue Emmy nomination for her stellar work. However, not only was the actress sorely underused this past season, but she was asked to play Betty as a one-note shrew for the majority of her screen time. There were glimpses of the broken woman inside the monster here and there, but unfortunately I think Matthew Weiner has turned Betty into a character Mad Men fans love to hate. I can't help but view this as a waste of a great actress and a potentially fascinating character. What's your take on Betty now that season 4 is over? Can she be redeemed in the eyes of fans next year, or has the character outlived her usefulness now that both she and Don have moved on? — Donnie
