Who was Don Draper's best 'Mad Men' secretary?

As I was about to publish my review of last night's superb "Mad Men," I had a thought inspired by Meredith's demand for Don to address all the rumors: has she, at this late date, turned out to be Don's best secretary? I tossed that question at the end of the review, along with a poll, but I feel like this merits being discussed away from the many callbacks and emotional moments that made "Time & Life" so special.

Review: Showtime's 'Happyish' will leave you feeling anything but

Comedy lives on after star Philip Seymour Hoffman's death, but it's a collection of annoying cliches

A fresh perspective can be a a tremendous boon to creating a television show, or it can be an enormous handicap. If you're new to this, you may not see the form the same way all the veterans do, and you may wind up telling stories in an entirely new way. Or you may find yourself repeating things that many before you have tried because you don't know what's a cliche and what isn't.

'The Americans' producers on season 3: 'It may be that our sense of bad is changing'

Breaking down what the finale did to Martha, Paige, Philip and more with Joel Fields and Joe Weisberg

FX's "The Americans" just completed a third season (here's my finale review) that was as emotionally rich as the series has ever been, but that at times to my mind suffered from an over-abundance of problems for its KGB protagonists to deal with. When I got on the phone with showrunners Joel Field and Joe Weisberg, we talked about where they left things involving Paige, Martha, Stan, Nina, and, of course, Philip and Elizabeth, about why they don't feel there's too much going on, how much longer they see their story going, and a lot more.
