Mad Men

Mad Men
10 pm/ET AMC
Season 4 opens with an Advertising Age reporter trying to find out just "Who is Don Draper?" Unfortunately for the scribe and the "scrappy upstart" firm of Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce, who hope that this promotional story would generate a rash of business, the secretive Mr. Draper spills no beans. Still, there is plenty going on in this involving episode as Pete and Peggy hire actors to stage a food fight over a meat company's product; and Don admonishes a prudish swimsuit manufacturer that his company can be "comfortable and dead, or risky and possibly rich." And on the ex-homefront, Don issues Betty an unsettling ultimatum. — Ray Stackhouse

Ratings: Lost Finale Is Strong, But Not Blockbuster


Lost's highly divisive series finale lifted ABC to an easy ratings win Sunday night, but the show's numbers no doubt fell short of expectations.

The 150-minute finale averaged 13.5 million viewers and was the show's highest-rated episode in two years. However, the hype surrounding the finale didn't translate to record-setting numbers. (ABC suggests that 20.5 million unique viewers tuned in for at least six minutes throughout the episode.)

Still, Lost fever carried the network. A two-hour clip show that preceded the finale drew ... read more

Tonight's TV Hot List: Sunday, May 23, 2010


9/8c ABC
In the beginning, Jack took charge of the Oceanic survivors. And as "The End" begins, he's back in command — anointed by Jacob as the island's guardian and its protector from the Locke Monster, who now says he wants to destroy it. Where would that leave Ben, who seems to want to stay? Where's the island Desmond?  How (and will) the L.A. and island stories merge? More questions? We each have 815, at least. Maybe we can thrash them out at a diner after tonight's concert. We understand that Drive Shaft is playing.

Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains
8/7c CBS
Unless Colby, the lone surviving Hero, can win back-to-back immunity challenges tonight and force his way into the final three who will be questioned by and voted upon by the jury members, it appears that a Villain will take home the $1 million top prize. But which one? Parvati and Sandra have won before, but is that enough to not vote for them? Jerri has never won, but her game wasn't the strongest. That leaves Russell. But everyone agrees he is the most diabolical player the game has ever seen, which could leave the Texas oilman coming up just short once again. Following the two-hour season finale, the 20 castaways reunite to learn the winner and discuss their adventure.

Premise: Matt Groening's subversive, animated satire about Springfield's hapless first family became a cult favorite when it premiered on Fox in 1989 after first being seen in 1987 as a short on 'The Tracey Ullman Show.' That was then; now it's TV longest running comedy. Not since 'The Flintstones' in the '60s has a cartoon series drawn such a large adult audience, and, ay caramba, given us pop-culture expressions for the ages. And in 1999, Time magazine called it the best TV show of the 20th century.
