Somewhere Don Draper is Getting Drunk

From a barn to the 27th floor to that sweet skyscraper in the sky.

There’s good news and bad news circulating in TV Land today. First, let’s rip the Band-Aid off with the Youvegottabeforgettingkiddingme–inducing announcement that AMC is postponing Season 5 of Mad Men amid contract negotiations. The new tentative air date: early 2012. EARLY 2012?! So just as the world is preparing to end in an apocalyptic Mayan blaze, we may (or may not) find comfort in one last hoorah with Don Draper, Betty (well, not Betty but maybe Megan…or at least Sally), and the liquor-swilling employees of Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce? If that’s the case, then please, Matthew Weiner, for the love of all saints, bring back Sal Romano and the ghost of Ida “Neil Armstrong” Blankenship!

And now the good news (which, I admit, is more new-ish than new): Season 3 of Eastbound & Down will bring Kenny Powers to Myrtle Beach. Though Kenny worked hard to get “clean and soebs” in Season 2, something tells me he might be getting Myrtle Beach drunk in the not too distant future. What’s Myrtle Beach drunk, you say? Well, I’m glad you asked…
