It's a Jon Hamm/"Mad Men" weekend: on Saturday, the man who plays Don Draper will be hosting "Saturday Night Live" and Sunday brings us the season finale of the mult-Emmy-winning show from AMC. Both are a must watch.

TV icons Ron Howard, Andy Griffith, and Henry Winkler recreated their roles in a pro-Obama piece on Funny or Die, that's right, Opie opines.
