Poor little Sally Draper. Her mother is cold and critical, her womanizing father's moving out of the family home and her beloved grandfather, the only adult who seemed to truly care about her, has just died unexpectedly. Should it come as any surprise, then, that the adorable tween could go off the deep end in the new season of AMC's "Mad Men," which premieres Sunday? "There will be some shocking moments with Sally," said 10-year-old Kiernan Shipka, who originated the character and nurtured her along to full-time cast status this season.

When "Weeds" premiered on Showtime, it seemed the quintessential suburban satire: Widowed stay-at-home mom accidentally becomes pot dealer and finds her inner gangsta amid the manicured lawns and granite-countered hypocrisy of a Southern California planned community. What creator Jenji Kohan may not have counted on was that her cast and characters would so quickly become literally too cool for the 'burbs.

Hang on to your deerstalker cap: Sherlock Holmes is not dead. This news may come as a shock to some, not least to John Watson, the doctor played by Martin Freeman in "Sherlock," the BBC's contemporary adaptation of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's famous detective stories.

After last year's season finale of "The Killing" generated howls of indignation, the show's blindsided creative team began worriedly plotting to win back their audience. What if the show's central mystery was answered — something implicitly promised in its first season promotional campaign "Who killed Rosie Larsen?" — in the opening episode of the new season, which begins April 1? After lengthy discussions, executives at AMC and the show's production company, Fox Television Studios, ultimately decided against the highly unusual step, according to a person familiar with those talks who was not authorized to speak about them publicly.

BALTIMORE - The good staffers of Vice President Selina Meyer's office had been trying to put out a fire all afternoon when their slightly discombobulated leader, played by Julia Louis-Dreyfus, turned up on the set of HBO's "Veep. " Before she stepped into character, however, Louis-Dreyfus had a question. "Did you talk to the actors about the script changes?" she said to the show's creator and all-around head coach, Armando Iannucci, as he sat behind a monitor watching takes. He nodded.

"Sesame Street" has concluded its search for the new Latino character who will be moving on to the cozy New York address for the show's 44th season. And the lucky guy is actor Ismael Cruz Cordova, a Puerto Rican actor who's been seen previously on "The Good Wife" as Jimmy Patrick (though that show has zero crossover with "Sesame Street's" audience). Cordova will play Armando, or "Mando," one of the non-felt residents of "Sesame Street. " His character is a writer from Puerto Rico who will join the other Latino residents, Maria and Luis, as well as the Spanish-speaking Muppets Rosita and Ovejita.
