1. Matthew Weiner and Lionsgate closed a deal for him to remain as producer of "Mad Men" through at least the third and fourth seasons. No idea what the dollar figures are (nor do I care), but this made too much sense for all parties to have it not get done.
2. It occurs to me that, by re-posting the original "Friday Night Lights" reviews (in order to retain the comments) rather than creating new duplicate posts, the old posts aren't going to ping anyone's RSS or XML reader. So if you follow the blog via a reader and are watching the broadcast run of "FNL," you may want to get in the habit of coming directly to the blog every Friday night around 10 Eastern. The first one is here.
