'Mad Men's' smoke and mirrors

Editor’s Note: This post contains spoilers for the Sunday, October 10 episode of AMC’s “Mad Men.”

The future of Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce remains uncertain as last night’s episode brought considerable changes for the fledgling agency.

Don met with Dr. Faye’s contact from Heinz. The star of the brand, ketchup, had representation elsewhere, so the meeting was to discuss the future of Heinz’s vinegars, beans and sauces and the company’s desire for a funny - not farty - campaign for their beans.

The Heinz representative was upfront with Don and expressed doubt over SCDP’s longevity. Don’s attempt to woo the rep was fruitless and the meeting ended as another notch on the agency’s bedpost of fail.

Behind the Scenes on 'Showbiz Tonight': Brett Favre's alleged texting scandal

You may be off from work today, but the "Showbiz Tonight" staff is hard at work – and here’s a behind the scenes look at what had us fired up this morning.

Miley Cyrus turns 18 in 6 weeks, so is there anything wrong with her racy new music video? She’s being accused of abandoning her fans but "SBT" staffers agree that kids Miley’s age are doing worse things on camera – so why are some people so ticked at Miley?!

"Showbiz Tonight" staffers were more outraged by football legend Brett Favre’s alleged sexy texting scandal. There's a golden rule at "Showbiz Tonight": If you are famous and you send racy texts/pictures/emails, YOU WILL GET BUSTED! Brett’s been around long enough to know that one, right? We’ve got shocking new details tonight.

And there’s big Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore news breaking – Are they making the right move with their public show of devotion in Israel?

Plus, don’t miss Brooke Anderson’s interview with Harry Hamlin and Lisa Rinna – it’s the interview you’ll see only on "Showbiz Tonight"!

Banksy tags 'The Simpsons' opening sequence

British street artist Banksy brought his vision to Springfield last night by directing the opening sequence for "The Simpsons," but his work might not necessarily have everyone laughing.

The sequence opens with the camera traveling through the streets of the Simpsons' fictitious hometown, past a billboard tagged with "Banksy" graffiti and landing in Springfield Elementary School, where bad boy Bart is scrawling "I will not write all over the walls" on a blackboard – and on the walls, of course.

Bart journeys via skateboard to the Simpson home and joins parents Homer and Marge and sisters Lisa and Maggie on the couch to watch TV – and then things take a dramatic turn.

Well-chosen birthday cakes on 'Boardwalk Empire'

Another episode of “Boardwalk Empire” is in the books, and I have a confession to make: I have not yet learned how to type anything negative about this show.

“Empire” fans, I swear, I'm trying. This space is certainly not reserved for testimonials on the grandeur and overall awesomeness of HBO's newest drama, but for four straight weeks now, the writers are renting to own here while I keep searching for annoyances as the Atlantic City tale unfolds.

There must be a time coming when some character will be a weak addition to the script, or some storyline will annoy me, right? Actually, I may have one lead on this, but confidence is NOT high – more on that later.

Eminem: I was bullied as a kid

Add Eminem to the long list of celebrities who say they were bullied as kids.

In a "60 Minutes" interview with Anderson Cooper last night, the rapper revealed that he switched schools so many times as a kid that he was considered an outcast.

"[I got] beat up in the bathroom, beat up in the hallways, shoved into lockers. You know, just...for the most part, man, you know, just bein' the new kid," Eminem said.
