For a couple of months now, 6:15 a.m. at the Henderson household on Green Acre Drive in Fullerton has meant time to sleep in a little bit. Why hassle summer vacation? But all that ended Tuesday morning, when the Hendersons all rolled out of bed early and, for the first of many mornings to come this school year, shoved school supplies in backpacks, boxed up lunches and wolfed down breakfast.

It's a good kind of too busy right now for actress Elisabeth Moss. At Sundance for the world premieres of two films, Alex Ross Perry's “Listen Up Philip” and Charlie McDowell's “The One I Love,” she has also been making awards-season rounds for AMC's "Mad Men," as well as the miniseries “Top of the Lake,” for which she recently won a Golden Globe. Making her schedule even more hectic, the final season of “Mad Men,” in which Moss plays Peggy Olson, a meek secretary transformed into a self-possessed advertising executive, is currently in production.

The word "utopia," that imaginary site of perfection, comes from the Greek, meaning "not a place." And it's this essential irony that playwright Phyllis Nagy hopes to catch in "Never Land," her tedious poetic ramble in which psychologically fragmented characters long to find a better elsewhere. Let's peek in on the crazy, financially strapped Joubert family in its misleadingly grand home in the South of France (tastefully appointed by scenic designer Frederica Nascimento).

Top of the Lake BBC Warner, $34.98 The New Zealand TV miniseries "Top of the Lake" is a different kind of mystery-procedural - more like a cross between "Twin Peaks" and "The Killing" than an episode of "Law & Order. " Credit the creators: writer Gerard Lee and writer-director Jane Campion, the latter of whom is best known for her Oscar-winning film "The Piano. " Here Campion tones down her arty, elliptical style and conforms to television conventions, telling a slow-burning but fairly gripping story about a big-city police detective (Elisabeth Moss)
Since November, when the Berlin Wall fell, it has been expected that the dominance of East German sports would also crumble. But few could have expected it this soon. If there can be such a thing as a rout in gymnastics, it happened Saturday. The United States women beat the East Germans by five points in a exhibition dual meet. The United States scored 192.75 points to 187.588 for the East Germans. The American score wasn't particularly high, but still solid.

Elisabeth Hasselbeck departed "The View" with virtually no warning. But her arrival at her new home on Fox News' "Fox & Friends" is getting plenty of buildup. The network announced Thursday that Sept. 16 will be Hasselbeck's debut alongside Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade. The men have been with the program since it began in 1998. Former "Fox & Friends" co-host Gretchen Carlson is departing to host her own daytime show on Fox News. The show will also debut its new set on that day. Hasselbeck frequently drew criticism for her conservative views during her 10-year tenure on "The View," but she should find a more welcoming audience on Fox News.

Elisabeth Moss was at home in New York, trying to stay out of the sweltering, nearly triple-digit heat when she got the happy news she'd been nominated for two Emmys for two startlingly different projects: the stylish advertising drama "Mad Men" and Jane Campion's eerily seductive "Top of The Lake," set in a backwater town in New Zealand. We talked to her about her double nominations, what to do when you're cooped up in New Zealand for five months (hint: catch up on "Downton Abbey")

When Elisabeth Hasselbeck strode out onto "The View" stage Wednesday morning for the last time, arm-in-arm with Barbara Walters, and bade a tearful farewell to her co-hosts, it wasn't exactly a surprise. After all, her departure from the show, after a decade as its lone conservative voice, had been rumored for months. It was, however, abrupt, coming less than a day after news broke that she would be leaving the ABC talk show to replace Gretchen Carlson as co-host of "Fox & Friends.

On Tuesday, Hasselbeck announced she would be departing the ABC daytime show for Fox News, where she'd be joining the morning program "Fox & Friends. " For her final broadcast, which was the day after the news broke, Hasselbeck took a few moments to emotionally thank everyone on the show, from executive producer, Bill Geddie, to Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar and the absent Sherri Shepherd.

Attention women of "The View": Soon you won't have Elisabeth Hasselbeck to push around any more. The sole conservative voice on the four- (sometimes five-) woman panel announced on Tuesday that Wednesday would be her final day on "The View. " She's moving over to "Fox & Friends" on Fox News. So now the question is: Who should replace Hasselbeck? With Barbara Walters departing in 2014 and Joy Behar leaving at the end of the current season, the show is undergoing a radical transformation.

It was a miserable day to be pregnant. Hot, humid, late in July, 1987. Afternoon thunderheads teased the mountains to the east of the city, and even skinny people sweated. Had it not been for motherhood, Darci Pierce and Cindy Ray might never have met on a broiling blacktop parking lot outside an obstetrics clinic. On this day, particularly, it was no place for a mother to be.

After graduating from Vassar College in 1966, Elisabeth Coleman sought a job in journalism "as an assistant to a smart man. " She found such a position as a researcher at Newsweek magazine in New York. In those "Mad Men" days of suffocating sexism, editing and reporting at the big newsweeklies were jobs done almost exclusively by men. Bright women like Coleman did the legwork, an arrangement she did not question - at first. Four years later, however, the revolution was underway.
