Not since the fall TV onslaught has there been a weekend this cluttered with high-profile new premieres, including network and cable (though mostly cable), running the gamut from lavish costume drama to spy spoof to haunting mystery. And there's a really lousy, old-school Kennedy miniseries in the mix you might have heard about. Something for everyone, you might say...

It will take 13 episodes before viewers learn who killed young Rosie Larsen in AMC's new, slow-burning murder mystery The Killing.

Mad Men fans, don't despair yet: Don Draper and company will be back for Season 5, but perhaps a few weeks later than usual.
Insiders at AMC tell TV Guide Magazine that a deal is close with Mad Men executive producer Matthew Weiner and Lionsgate, which produces the show. If a deal can be finalized shortly, the show will be a month or so behind schedule (the writers are usually back to work by February) — but could still hit the network by fall...
