The Good, The Bad & The WTF: The Critics’ Choice Television Awards

Last night, the 2nd annual Critics’ Choice Television Awards were held. The big winners were … well, there were a lot of winners. But Christina Hendricks and Jon Hamm were honored for their work on “Mad Men,” Tina Fey won for “30 Rock,” and even Danny Devito took home a prize (the “Television Icon Award,&#8221…

11 Cases Of On-Set Co-Star Beef

Art may be imitating life on the set of “Mad Men.” According to Star magazine, January Jones has an issue with Jessica Pare. “January is furious because she pretty much had no story line this season, not to mention that she had to wear a fat suit!” a source told Star. “Meanwhile, Jessica is a…

John Slattery Opens Up About Roger’s Relationship With Joan

“I was a little surprised that people were so shocked she would undertake that transaction. She’s done other things — she’s slept with other people before, she’s a sexually confident person, she knows what she’s doing, and this was an opportunity for her to set herself up for the rest of her life. She’s probably…

Next Season On “Mad Men,” Can We Get More Of Megan’s Bitchy French Mom?

Last night’s “Mad Men” finale was a littttttle bit of snooze in comparison to the two that preceded it (Joan sleeping with a Jaguar exec and Lane Pryce hanging himself), but it did feature my new favorite minor character, Marie, aka Megan’s mom. This bitch dashes hopes and spits real talk in a sultry French…

Vincent Kartheiser Talks About Pete Campbell Pimping Out Joan Holloway On “Mad Men”

“I’ll say this: I would personally never do that, just to be clear. I don’t think the fact that it happened in the ’60s makes it any less despicable. It’s despicable, regardless of how or when you do it. I’ll also say: Businesses oftentimes have to resort to things that they would never want the…

Words Of Wisdom From Mad Women

After an eventful season, the “Mad Men” season finale airs this Sunday. Don Draper might be the star talent of Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce, but Joan, Peggy, Betty, Trudy, Megan, and the rest of the ladies of the show have always intrigued us, and we love their quippy one-liners on life, love, and sex. Check out some of…

Face-Off: Sansa Stark And Sally Draper Both Get Their Periods

Last night on “Mad Men,” something MAJOR happened, but I am not going to talk about that because I am trying to be respectful of those who do not prioritize TV watching on Sunday night and still haven’t seen the episode. However, I am going to talk about the second major thing that happened o…

How Badly Do You Want These “Mad Men” Barbies?

“Mad Men” may be almost done for the season, but fret not! Here’s a whole mess of “Mad Men”-inspired Barbie dolls to keep you entertained. No, Mattel hasn’t suddenly sanctioned LSD and sex out of wedlock. Artist Michael Williams of MyLifeInPlastic.com dressed each and every one of these old Barbie and Ken dolls (plus a Skipper…

Christina Hendricks On Joan’s Rapey Ex-Husband

“Well, everyone knew [Joan’s husband] had to go at some point, right? I mean, you can’t rape your wife in the office and not expect to go away. … It was the first time it was mentioned and I think it was a long time coming, for the audience in particular. I think everyone kept thinking…

Face-Off: “Mad Men”‘s Peggy Olson & “Girls”‘ Hannah Horvath Are Kind Of The Same Person

Okay, before you tell me I am totally reaching with this one, hear me out. The other day, after watching this week’s episodes of “Mad Men” and “Girls,” I was trolling Tumblr when I came across a post by Jenny Deluxe (who happens to write for The New York Times, so she obvs has a…

Debate This: Joan Holloway’s Choice To “Sleep Her Way To The Top” On “Mad Men”

Sunday night’s episode of “Mad Men” was a climactic one, and possibly the best episode of the season. Peggy, fed up with being taken for granted by Don, landed a new job at a rival firm and resigned by Sterling Cooper Draper Price. Meanwhile, SCDP’s deal with Jaguar seemingly hinges on Joan sleeping with a…

Face-Off: “Mad Men”‘s Pete Campbell & “Game Of Thrones”‘ Theon Greyjoy Are Kind Of The Same Person

I love Sunday night television. “Game of Thrones” with a “Mad Men” chaser, nothing is more satisfying! But in the last few weeks, I’ve noticed something. Theon Greyjoy on “Game of Thrones” is basically the Pete Campbell of Westeros. Think about it. Both are so pathetic you might feel sorry for them, if they weren’t…

Watch All The Awesome Sunday Night TV In One 2-Minute Clip

Between “Game of Thrones,” “Mad Men,” “Girls,” “Veep” and all the rest, it’s impossible to watch all the good TV that airs on Sunday night. (I’d also include “Long Island Medium” in that, but nobody asked.) That’s why the folks at Jest.com made this television mash-up which incorporates characters from all your fave Sunday night…

– “Mad Men”‘s marvelous Jessica Paré, on her signature gap teeth. Jessica also dished a tiny bit about the future of her character Megan’s relationship with hubby Don Draper, noting that “we…

The Rise Of Weight Watchers In The 1960’s

This week on “Mad Men“‘s “Dark Shadows” episode, Weight Watchers serves as a type of therapy for Betty Francis, who can definitely use it. Boredom, jealousy, and insecurity dominate Betty’s life as a 1960s housewife on her second marriage, and she’s turned to bags of Bugles to pass the time. Now determined to lose the…

“Mad Men” Creator Sheds Light On Don Draper’s S&M Sex Drive

“Don’s relationship — and [the] women in his life’s relationship[s] — between power and sex is very closely linked. And I think it’s part of the human experience. I think it’s an animal thing. Powerful men in particular seem to want to be controlled sexually. … I think what you’re seeing is that they do…

Girl Talk: In Defense Of Peggy Olsen’s Anonymous Hand Job

It happened so quickly, and it was so dark, that it was hard to tell what Peggy Olsen was doing in that movie theater. I texted a friend. 

“Did Peggy just give a hand job to her boyfriend or a random man?”

“It’s hard to tell the way it was shot,…

“Mad Men”‘s Roger Sterling Drops Acid With “My So-Called Life”‘s Patty Chase

Last night’s episode of “Mad Men” was weirdly awesome. Peggy gave a handjob in a dark movie theater (GIF after the jump!), Don tried to force Megan to enjoy Howard Johnson’s orange sherbet (GIF after the jump!), and, as shown in the clip above, Roger Sterling dropped acid. And Patty Chase, the mom from “My…

Fat Betty Draper Gets Her Own Song

Normally I’d be peeved by a song about how fat a lady TV character has gotten. But I prefer to see this  “Fat Betty” song by SOUTH Music & Sound Design in another light: an ode to those of us who love our ice cream. Blam-a-blam! (Also, spoiler alert, if you are way behind o…
