Another one bites the dust.
Jon Hamm and Christina Hendricks turn to drink to drown their post-Emmy sorrows.
Guess who's coming to the
It's already time for the mid-season break, which means we won't be seeing most of our favorite characters until January (or, in the case of Community, who knows when...) Fortunately, many of them have learned how to be web savvy in TV land, though and we can follow them on Twitter now! Here are a few worth keeping up with over the holidays.
When the pilot for the new Fox series Touch aired as a special preview this week, we got to see a subtle performance by a child actor who has to serve as the centerpiece of an emotional, complex series... without ever saying a single word.

Still, AMC never got the memo and is now asking us to watch what is essentially The Apprentice without any washed-up celebrities calling each other "fucking useless" in the process... airing opposite The Apprentice. Unfortunately, I'm not buying it.
