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

9 pm/ET ABC While this summer hit is already slated for a second season, its rookies — in their rookie season — have been making their share of mistakes on the job.

If Spock died in the second Star Trek film and came back to life in the third, and if David Tennant's Dr. Who can "die" and come back as Matt Smith, surely Artie (Saul Rubinek) could've found something in the warehouse to let him survive the inferno that consumed him at the end of the first-season finale. Right? And while we're throwing around sci-fi luminaries, it's worth mentioning that an author who helped to establish the genre turns up in tonight's second-season launch.

Hot Dog Eating Contest
Along with fireworks and parades, no coverage of America's Independence Day is complete without footage of Joey Chestnut, an otherwise ordinary-looking kid from California, scarfing down the winning hot dogs at the Nathan's Famous International contest on Coney Island. A three-time defending champ, Chestnut has become to competitive eating what Roger Federer is to tennis, and may not have rival Takeru Kobayashi to beat this time around, as the event's former king was locked in a contract dispute with organizers from Major League Eating. Now, that's cause for indigestion.

Tour de France 2006 winner Floyd Landis
