Hope you caught the season finale of Mad Men - it was excellent, especially the final pitch to Kodak (the finale will repeat tonight at 10:00pm on AMC). Am still bummed over the death of Deborah Kerr, of the King and I and From Here to Eternity fame (yeah, that was her rolling around in the surf with Burt Lancaster), she will be very much missed. We also lost the last remaining member of the Rat Pack (not the Brat Pack as I previously wrote), comedian Joey Bishop.

ALL DAY Horror Movies TCM - Yup, classic and weird horror movies all day on Turner Classic Movies, including: Die! Die! My Darling!, Freaks, The Devil Doll, and London After Midnight. TV Junkie Pick-O-the-Night.

8:00pm The Next Great American Band FOX - Series Premiere. Sneak previews have shown that there might not be many "bad audtions" for viewers to watch, which might be a mistake since that's about 1/2 the reason to watch American Idol.
