The Likability Index: Ranking characters from 'Mad Men,' 'Game of Thrones,' 'Breaking Bad,' and more

likability-chart

As Mad Men‘s season 6 comes to a close, Don Draper’s descent into his own inferno cements his anti-hero status. You either love to hate him, or hate to love him. His ambiguous ethics create an interesting dynamic for the viewer — but he’s not the only one on TV like that.

Mad Men and its contemporaries — Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, Scandal, The Walking Dead, Homeland, Justified, Sons of Anarchy, Dexter, The Americans, and Boardwalk Empire — are shows that revolve around questions of morality. Whether it be an ad executive who will do anything to sleep with their married neighbors, a former high school teacher turned meth kingpin trying to provide for his family, kings and queens vying for the Iron Throne, or crisis managers who just happen to fix presidential races for the man they love, these series make us question who we’re rooting for and why.

There are incredibly likeable characters who do horrible things (Boardwalk Empire‘s Al Capone) or characters who are, at their core, good people whom we don’t like very much (Game of Thrones‘ Sansa). Then there’s everyone else — who falls somewhere in the middle on the scale.

Check out or “Likability Index” below, where we rank our favorites on two axes — from likable to hateable, and from good to evil. READ FULL STORY

'Sons of Anarchy' season finale: Predictions? Polls!

Tonight, Sons of Anarchy‘s wild fifth season comes to an end (FX, 10 p.m. ET) with another emotionally-charged, bullet-laden, 90-minute episode. In his review for EW’s What to Watch section, Dalton Ross hints that we’ll see “the gnarliest thing the biker drama has ever put on screen,” while Ron Perlman teases for us that the season finishes at a place that’s “very dark and very sad” and “profoundly painful.” Perhaps both men are stating the obvious. Let’s get to the big questions. Polls below! READ FULL STORY

What pop culture we're thankful for this Thanksgiving

This Thanksgiving, I’m thankful for Downton Abbey‘s imminent return to television in the States. Yes, Jan. 6 is still a few weeks away, but I can’t wait to see whether Matthew (Dan Stevens) and Mary (Michelle Dockery) actually walk down the aisle — they really need to, I couldn’t take another breakup — and what brand of American sass Shirley MacLaine brings with her across the pond. Plus, on a more sappy note, the series spawned a regular Sunday night Masterpiece viewing/wine-drinking party with a group of friends that is priceless to me.

I’ve also polled my EW colleagues to ask what they are most grateful for pop culture wise this turkey day. See what they said below!
