What's new on the tube tonight:

Mad Men (AMC) Series Finale: Someone knows how Mad Men ultimately ends—not you or I, but someone. The theories are likely far more fantastical than what show boss Matthew Weiner will actually end up closing with, while the more mundane—"Don falls from the building à la the opening credits," "Peggy opens her own agency and finally transforms into Don" and "Fed-up Joan becomes a chauvinist-killing vigilante supervillianess terrorizing New York City by night"—don't quite cut it. The almost year-long break in Season 7 sucked what little buzz was left out of Mad Men, but that's probably for the best: Unlike Breaking Bad, this is a series that needs to end quietly and on its own stately terms. But that doesn't mean I'm not holding out hope for a spin-off series—might I suggest Trudy!, starring Alison Brie?
