Mad Men's Christina Hendricks is on Martha today, making cocktails

I'll admit it: I like Martha (the show and the person). Unlike a lot of daytime shows that feature cooking and other how-to segments, it's not so heavily tilted towards women that men can't get into it. Unlike Rachael Ray, which has way too many segments on makeovers, relationships, and what shoes you should wear.

Today she has Mad Men's Joan Holloway herself, Christina Hendricks. It says in the summary for the episode that Hendricks is going to mix Halloween cocktails and hors d'oeuvres. Whenever someone from Mad Men is on Martha they make cocktails. Last season Bryan Batt (Sal Romano) was on and made Manhattans and Rob Roys.

Here's a sneak peek. It doesn't really show too much, except that most of the episode is all about spiders. I hate spiders.

One more big post about Mad Men before tonight's season premiere

HammHey, did you hear Mad Men's third season debuts tonight at 10 on AMC? Actually, when the show is this good, I don't mind the hype.

To prepare for the third season, here are some more web goodies for you (in addition to avatars, sneak peeks and recaps). The New York Times has an article on the cocktails of the Mad Men era, and if you want to make some of your own AMC has the drink recipes. AMC also has a Which Mad Man Are You? quiz. Or how about buying some of the era's items for your house?

There are also several interviews to read before the premiere, including Jon Hamm (here too), Christina Hendricks, Elisabeth Moss, and Vincent Kartheiser.

Oh, something from the other night, after the jump...

Lots of people are having Mad Men parties tonight

So how are you celebrating the season finale of Mad Men tonight? I'm doing it the same way I do it every single Sunday night at 10, with a Mad Men party! Of course, my party consists of me and an alcoholic beverage, but still!

There are a lot of people who having parties tonight, including the cool ladies over at Basket of Kisses, who are throwing a bash at Phoenix Park in New York City. Noir Bar at the Charles Hotel in Cambridge, MA is having a season finale party, too, with retro drinks and snacks and even a lookalike contest with prizes. I bet there are a lot of bars in your local area that are having parties as well, so I'd check if you feel like dressing up and going out instead of being plopped on your couch tonight.

Kate Flannery on the J.J. Abrams Office episode

Kate FlanneryKate Flannery, who most of you will know as Meredith from The Office, has updated her TV Guide blog with some tidbits about the big J.J. Abrams directed episode, "Cocktails." There are a couple spoilers, so save it for tomorrow if you dodge that kind of stuff. The entry also includes some more trivia on last week's Whedon episode, "Business School." For instance, Rainn Wilson named the bat, and it was a live bat, Gary.

The thing I found interesting was her story of her past with Abrams. It seems that previous to her Office gig, Kate spent some time working as a waitress. Abrams would come in to write and ask how her acting was going. When the two met again on the set he remembered her, and was very excited for her success. Abrams catches a lot of crap for his role in the whole Lost deal, so it's worth pointing out the positive stories now and again too.
