Most mash-up videos that promise “every [insert line/action/moment here]” from a given television show usually have enough time to provide at least a little context for the lines, actions, or moments that are getting singled out. But when your goal is to feature every act of drinking ever on AMC’s Mad Men, it’s apparently best to crank up the zippy jazz and keep things moving as fast as possible. Check it out below and see what we mean: READ FULL STORY

EWwy Awards 2012: Which Supporting Actor is the tougher race?
He is Jimnerys Stormborn of house Targaryen, the first of his name, mother of dragons, Queen of the Andals and the Rhoynar and the First Men, Lord of the Seven Kingdoms, Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea — and he will take what is his, with fire and blood!
Sorry, what were we talking about? Oh yeah: Jimmy Kimmel is channeling four beloved characters from shows nominated for Best Drama Emmys on the cover of TV Guide this week. To your left, you can see his take on Daenerys the Unburnt, etc. etc., from Game of Thrones. “I look more like a member of Poison than Khaleesi,” the late night funnyman told the magazine. He felt a little more comfortable imitating Bryan Cranston’s Breaking Bad character: “I do feel like Walter White. I kinda look like him. It’s amazing what a little glue and hair from some unidentified animal will do,” he said.
Check out Kimmel’s take on Walt, as well as his version of Downton Abbey‘s Dowager Countess and Mad Men‘s Don Draper, here — and check TV Guide for the mag’s full interview. Kimmel hosts the Primetime Emmys on Sunday, September 23.
Now, bring him his dragons!
It’s Day 2 of voting for EW’s 5th Annual EWwy Awards, honoring the shows and actors snubbed by the Emmys, and already, a themed has emerged in the comments: That Supporting Actor race is brutal — whether you’re talking drama or comedy.

The drama nominees are Fringe‘s John Noble, Boardwalk Empire‘s Michael Pitt, Mad Men‘s John Slattery, The Killing‘s Joel Kinnaman, and Justified‘s Walton Goggins. (Vote here.)

It’s September, which means it’s once again time for the EWwys, EW.com’s annual awards honoring the shows, actors, and actresses that should’ve been nominated for an Emmy but weren’t. This year’s nominees are a combination of those who made EW critic Ken Tucker’s Emmy wish list and those who readers felt were most grievously snubbed when the Emmy nominations were announced in July. Check out the nominees in the five EWwy Comedy categories and vote for your favorites here. Click through the nominees in the five EWwy Drama categories and cast your votes here. Polls will remain open through Sept. 13. Winners will be announced Sept. 14. There are trophies involved, to which two-time EWwy winner Courteney Cox can attest: READ FULL STORY
Your favorite TV shows just got hotter: Game of Thrones, Mad Men, and Doctor Who have been given a makeunder by a New York City burlesque troupe.
Hotsy Totsy Burlesque’s rotating cast hosts themed performances every third Tuesday of the month. Last week’s tribute show to Game of Thrones pushed the TV show’s R-rated envelope further with booze, blood, fire, and flesh (lots and lots of bare flesh). In the burlesque act, host Cyndi Freeman (AKA Cherry Pitz) drank a toxic alcoholic concoction that landed her in the hospital. GoT played in her mind during her unconscious state and she channeled the character Tyrion Lannister during her risqué performance.
Breaking Bad is back!
You can pour over all the scheming and darkness with EW’s recap — and Ken Tucker’s review — but there’s another matter we want to discuss here in PopWatch: Are the wives on AMC shows just the worst people ever? Skyler got us thinking so last night.
Sure, you can argue Skyler is doing the best she can (her husband did just murder someone, after all). But her dealings with Ted last season were not the best.
You’ve also got Lori on The Walking Dead, and her affair with Shane. Of course, Betty Draper on Mad Men is certainly no dream. Although Don was less than an ideal husband (understatement of the year), Betty is a child with little interest in her own children. For argument’s sake, let’s also throw Sarah Linden from The Killing into the mix. Yes, yes, she’s not technically married, but she’s got to be in this poll for being the world’s most MIA fiancé last season — Rosie killer on the loose or not.
Mirror, mirror on the wall: Who’s the worst wife of them all? READ FULL STORY
AMC and DISH have been playing a bitter game of mutual brinksmanship all month long. First, Dish Network banished AMC and its sibling-networks IFC and WE down to the lower reaches of the dial. Then, AMC used the overflowing gravitas of Don Draper to tell everyone that DISH was being totes lame. This was all in good fun, we thought, just the way that media companies do business. But today, DISH implemented the nuclear option: The company announced that, as of 11:59 p.m. tomorrow, AMC Networks will be eradicated from the DISH universe. That means AMC, WE, and IFC will all be gone, although the press release is quick to point out that AMC will be replaced by HDNet Movies. Now, while HDNet Movies does not currently carry two of the greatest TV shows ever made, it is playing Simon Birch tonight. Twice. READ FULL STORY
As anyone who saw Mad Men this season knows, good girl Rory Gilmore is all grown up.
SPOILER ALERT! Alexis Bledel’s Mad Men character, Beth, may have had an ill-fated fling with Pete (Vincent Kartheiser), but their onscreen longing has turned into something real. US Weekly reports that the duo have begun dating.
As of press time, Bledel’s rep didn’t respond to EW’s request for comment. Assuming it’s true (there’s some historical precedent, Bledel previously dated her Gilmore Girls costar Milo Ventimiglia) they’ll join a list of celebrity couples that, due to their onscreen antics, make us a little uncomfortable. We can’t help it — poor Trudy!
In that spirit, EW rounded up some of the most memorable celebrity couples with onscreen baggage: READ FULL STORY
