Worst Idea Ever?

The CW announced plans to add more commercials to the episodes of its shows that are streamed online — and unlike on your DVR, you won't be able to fast-forward through any of them.
Dawn Ostroff, the network's entertainment president, likened the plan to the amount of commercials that currently air on television and called it "a blueprint for the industry." She added that testing by the network revealed that viewers are willing to watch more commercial content online than they are currently watching.
Umm, really? I used to be happy with just 30 second commercials when I watched online... then I discovered I could watch TV using Surf The Channel/Mega Video with NO commercials and it changed my life.

"[Jersey Shore] takes a bunch of New Yorkers, drops them at the Jersey Shore and tries to make America feel like this is New Jersey."
-New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie
Ummm, anyone else see something wrong with this statement? Saying that Jersey Shore stereotypes Jersey by stereoyping New York seems like a bad idea....


Watch Your Feet

Mad Men star Crista Flanagan (aka Lois aka dumb secretary who provided us with one of the best moments in television history when she ran over an executives foot with a lawnmower...) will be gracing the pages of Playboy with a 1960s inspired photo shoot. Oh la la!


Secrets, secrets are no fun...

Did you know:
Hamm's favorite episode of last season was "The Gypsy and The Hobo," in which his character's secret double life exposed to wife Betty. "It was beautifully written and shot," he told TV Guide.

This is what I had to say about the episode way back in October 2009:

Don Draper:
Or should I say Dick Whitman? I honestly NEVER thought I would see this day. I mean, I never thought Betty would find out, and then when she did, I assumed she would never confront him. But when she confronted her husband about his sordid past last night... whoa, what a show.
It starts when he stands in his office and realizes she knows the truth. His hand that grips the keys to his past (literally) loosens its grip, and he doesn't even flinch as Betty takes them away and opens the drawer. The action moved to the kitchen, where we see a frazzled Don standing over the sink, reaching for a cigarette. The usually calm, cool, and collected leading man has never been shown so shaken. When she asks if he is looking towards the door, he responds simply, "I'm not going anywhere."
Finally, the scene in the bedroom, when he admits his whole past, is seriously breathtaking. I don't think I blinked for the whole conversation. I thought he would maybe tell her a simple version; only reveal what he had to. But no, he tells the whole truth and nothing but the truth. Being born to a prostitute who died in child birth; being raised by Archie and his wife, and then later after his father died, Mac; going to Korea and taking Draper's identity because it was easier than starting over; divorcing Don's wife and buying her a house; he even admits to visiting her while he was in California!
And when she asks him about Adam, the little boy from the pictures, (ugh Jon Hamm you deserve all the acting awards they can possibly give you!) he breaks down, admitting that his brother came to him and just wanted to be in his life and he turned him away. He turned him away because he didn't want to 'risk all this.'
It is a known fact that I hate Betty and love Don. Even though she mostly acts like a seven year old, I really hope she takes this as a gesture of love and doesn't dangle it over his head forever. AND I hope Don doesn't take back up with that psycho school teacher. She is getting too googly-eyed at him anyway.
Obviously, Betty did not forgive Don, as she is headed off the Reno with that other Dude. (Fine. I never liked you anyway, Betty). Anyways... I'm super psyched about the premiere and to see how Don's life is changed once his secret life is revealed. You think Betty would tell on him?


You Lucky Dog

Did you know:
Jon Hamm's pup Cora congratulated him on his Emmy nod by farting in his face.

I couldn't make that up if I tried.


Obama is MAD

Did you know: Mad Men creator Matt Weiner has a framed letter from President Obama hanging outside his office."He wrote to say he enjoyed Season 3," the Weiner says, giggling in disbelief. "He was congratulating me on my and the show's success, and I wanted to say, 'But wait, you're the successful person.'"


I'm Mad.

MTV told us that we needed to pick one 'current event' to follow throughout the competition. Welp, here I go again. Another thing to tweet constantly about....

Lucky for me (and you!), one of my absolute favorite TV shows just happens to be starting its 4th season on July 25th.... just a few days after all these challenges end. Any clue what show I’m talking about?

I’ll give you three hints.
1. The fashion in it is to die for.
2. The men (or maybe just man?) are gorgeous.
3. It’s already given away with the title of this post.

That’s right, kiddos. I’m talking about Mad Men on AMC.

Every single day, from now until July 25th (premiere day!), check back here for your daily Mad Men post. It could be as simple as my favorite Joan outfit from seasons’ past or some (gasp!) spoilers about what is up for the men (and women) of Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce.

Say what?

An actual quote from a TVGuide.com article...
For the third week in a row, a female dancer was eliminated from Season 7 of So You Think You Can Dance, begging the question: Does America hate women?
Ridiculous. I'm not even including the link to this article. You can find it on your own if you are really interested in finding out if America hates women....
