Spend all week luxuriating outside as summer finally takes hold? Here's what you missed on TV.
Don Draper Only Lives Twice
Season 5 of Mad Men came to a close quietly, with Don (Jon Hamm) leaving Megan's (Jessica Pare) commercial shoot and walking across a dark, empty soundstage as Nancy Sinatra's "You Only Live Twice" plays. Drinking an Old-Fashioned at a bar, he's approached by a flirtatious blonde who asks, "Are you alone?" He doesn't answer, but his wolfish leer suggests that the womanizing Don Draper of old may be coming back.
Somebody Help The Tonys
Even when there are surprises at the Tony Awards -- like the clean sweep for the gentle rock musical Once, or UK sitcom star James Corden's underdog win for the uproarious One Man, Two Guvnors -- why does the show have to be so dreadfully dull? Neil Patrick Harris is awesome, but he's only one man: bring in some decent support acts, and quit it with the numbers from big-ticket shows that aren't even in contention. We're looking at you, Ghost. Give us a reason to care about Broadway again!
An Emotional Announcement
Monday morning, in an emotional segment, Good Morning America co-host Robin Roberts released that she's been diagnosed with a rare bone marrow disease called MDS. Speaking tearfully alongside Diane Sawyer, Roberts was clear-headed but hopeful when she described the disease -- an apparent byproduct from her successful breast cancer treatment five years ago -- its treatment and her prognosis, which she claimed was good. We wish her all the best.
Didn't See That Coming
Gilmore Girls creator Amy Sherman-Palladino returned to series TV with the promising debut of the comedy-drama Bunheads. An aging Las Vegas showgirl (Sutton Foster) drunkenly marries a nice guy she doesn't love (Alan Ruck) and moves to a small coastal California town where his mother (Kelly Bishop) runs a dance academy for teenage girls. What none of us were expecting is that at the very end of the first episode, the nice-guy new husband dies in an off-screen car accident, leaving this odd couple alone together. It's a risky choice, but I have faith in Sherman-Palladino's ability to tell a story.
A Slow-Motion Trainwreck
The final season of MTV's Teen Mom began with a wrenching look at the downward spiral of the show's breakout figure Amber Portwood. A suicidal drug addict who seems like she would have fallen apart even if there hadn't been cameras around to document her every move for the last two years, Portwood is the cautionary tale of the series. Given what we already know from tabloid documentation of Portwood's recent life, though, it's only going to be getting worse as the season rolls on.
