Don Draper’s Relationships On “Mad Men,” From Most To Least Dysfunctional

As a woman who loves "Mad Men," which returns to AMC this Sunday, I'm both besotted with and disgusted by Don Draper, who somehow manages to be both tenderly flawed and nakedly brutal at the same time. Don burns through women faster than some people change socks. Some of those women try to change him…

Vincent Kartheiser Stands Up For Jon Hamm’s “Idiots” Kardashian Comment

"I don't think [Jon Hamm was] wrong. It's OK to look at something and say what it is. It's OK to look at a McDonald's hamburger and say, 'Yeah, I like the taste of them, but they're not good for me.' We live in a time where everyone's very aware that there's people who are celebritie…

January Jones Comes Down Hard On Public Childhood Masturbation

"You know, Sally shouldn’t be masturbating at other people’s houses or she’s going to get slapped.” -- January Jones defends Betty Draper -- specifically her decision to smack tween daughter Sally after she was busted diddling herself at a neighbor's house -- in an interview with The Daily. You know, I could easily write, like,…

“Mad Men”‘s Don Draper And Roger Sterling, A Love Story

Is it true that the real love story on "Mad Men" is actually between Roger Sterling and Don Draper? Perhaps it is, perhaps it is. I know I'd like that to be true, and so does Elisa Kreisinger, who created this awesomely subversive take on the show. "The goal was to tell a story about…

“Mad Men” Mashup: The Ladies Sing The Supremes

T-minus five days until "Mad Men" is back on-air and this will get you pumped! Video artists Elisa Kreisinger and Marc Faletti have remixed the ladies of "Mad Men" singing a kickass mashup of The Supremes song "You Keep Me Hangin' On." You've probably heard the song before — but you've never heard it like…

Evening Quickies: Jon Hamm Digs His Kardashian Hole A Little Bit Deeper

The cast of "Mad Men" hit "The Today Show" and of course they asked Jon Hamm about his recent remarks implying that Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian are "f**king idiots," which Kim did not appreciate. "It’s a part of our culture that I certainly don’t identify with and I don’t really understand the appeal of…

Love It Or Hate It: Alison Brie At The “Mad Men” Premiere

Alison Brie is the cutest. And in this outfit she wore to the premiere of "Mad Men" earlier this week, she's really channeled her character Trudy Campbell. But is it too much? Does she look costume-y instead of retro-inspired? What do you say?

That’s A Lot Of Look: January Jones At The “Mad Men” Premiere

Okay, so this dress, with just a bunch of side cut outs would have been great. Or just a bunch of weird ruffles on the bottom. Sure, I'd abide. But the combo of the two might just qualify for over-complicating what could be a very pretty garment. Either way, she's a pretty bangin' MILF, wouldn't…

Elisabeth Moss Doesn’t Have Good Things To Say About Split From Fred Armisen

"One of the greatest things I heard someone say about him is, ‘He's so great at doing impersonations. But the greatest impersonation he does is that of a normal person.' To me that sums it up … I don't want to waste any more of my life talking about it." -- "Mad Men"'s Elisabeth Moss

Stop Asking Elisabeth Moss If Don And Peggy Are Going To Sleep Together On “Mad Men”

Elisabeth Moss: People are constantly asking if [Don Draper and Peggy Olsen are] gonna sleep together. I always get annoyed, because their relationship is more than that. And to keep that going over five years without selling out and having something else happen — that to me is really interesting and rarely done well. Jon

Here’s “Mad Men” Official Season 5 Poster — But What Does It All Mean?

Every week it seems like there is new art for the "Mad Men" season five premiere, not that we mind. This is the "official" art and it sure is perplexing. Don Draper is staring at a pair of mannequins, including a naked female mannequin, and his own reflection in a department store window. What does

See larger image here. "Mad Men" returns from its eons-long hiatus on March 25. That gives us just a month to get back into all the couplings, breakups and make ups that Don Draper and pals were embroiled in.

“Mad Men”‘s Falling Man Gets Graffitied Up

I'm so accustomed to seeing penises scrawled on Reese Witherspoon's face on those "This Means War" posters that it's refreshing to see graffiti that's not an ode to the male anatomy. Oh, I'm sorry. Are we not supposed to call it "graffiti"? Is it called "street art" because the doodles are on posters for "Mad…

Jon Hamm On Don And Peggy’s Subordi-Friendship

“I think in the world of the show we see the office through Peggy’s eyes. She’s the new girl and we see her from her very first day... And we’ve watched through over 50 episodes of television her grow and become more confident and we’ve watched Don alternately shout at her and correct her and…

Is This “Mad Men” Ad Insensitive To 9/11 Victims?

Oooh. That's no good. Who thought this was a good advertisement to put in downtown Manhattan? I love "Mad Men" as much as the next latte-drinking, Volvo-driving, East Coast liberal and I know the image of man in a suit falling from the sky in the opening credits is powerful iconography tied to the show.

January Jones Admits “Everybody Hates Me”

"I find it really interesting that people think that, like, in seasons three and four, she's become unlikable because she's become more independent. Everybody liked Betty when she was, like, in a living hell in season one and two, and now they hate her. ... I think as an audience member you can empathize with…

Matthew Weiner Promises “Mad Men” Will Not End In A Fart

"I do know how the whole show ends ... It came to me in the middle of last season. I always felt like it would be the experience of human life. And human life has a destination. It doesn't mean Don's gonna die. What I'm looking for, and how I hope to end the show,…

Kiernan Shipka Of “Mad Men” Analyzes Other Child Stars

It's about 10 years too late to help Shia LaBeouf. But maybe Kiernan Shipka can still do some good in the wild and crazy world of child stars. She has certainly spent long enough in the child psychologist's office on "Mad Men." Most of the sessions in this Funny Or Die video are pretty cool,…
