Will Barrymore direct 'Eclipse'? She starred as a buddy to that lovable alien E.T., but does Drew Barrymore have what it takes to direct vampires? The 34-year-old actress has confirmed that she's being considered for Eclipse, the third movie in the blockbuster teen vamp saga that launched with Twilight last year. "I'm one of the directors that is being talked about, which is great, because I'm a director now," Barrymore said in a recent interview. "But, you know, they'll make their choice."

Don has taken the elevator ride straight to Hell. “Excuse me,” Don yells behind jail bars. “I shouldn't be in here.” Yes, he should. And not just for punching a minister, even if that hatemonger deserved it. (MLK, RFK and the Vietnam soldiers aren't “true believers”? Cue Sally's eye roll.) For the past few seasons, we've put up with Don's philandering, deception and debauchery. He's struggled to find inner-peace yet we stood by him. This season, however, Don sunk to new lows.

The Starter Wife, a hit cable miniseries that garnered 10 Emmy nominations, arrives tonight as a weekly series on USA. Debra Messing reprises her role as Molly Kagan, ex-wife of a show-biz mogul forced to navigate the shark-infested straits of Hollywood with only a little help from a few select friends and a 7-year-old daughter. One of the friends is played by the divine Judy Davis, who won an Emmy for her work in the miniseries and, happily, has signed on for the season. (9 tonight, USA)

"Someday, my prince will come. " -- Snow White, 1937 In a hotel in Canada hangs this picture, someone's mischievous take on Snow White a few years after happily ever after. She is posed in an anonymous suburban den. Behind her, Prince Charming slouches in a chair, slowly going to seed. Snow has a babe in arms and a few other rug rats scattered about the floor. She faces you with an expression that seems to ask, is this all there is? It is less a comment on marriage than on the notion that marriage is the holy grail of a woman's existence, the finish line of her life's hopes, dreams and goals.

History might be made on two fronts tonight at the Emmys. While much has been written about either AMC's Mad Men or FX's Damages having a chance to become the first basic cable series to win as best drama, even more compelling is the possibility that HBO's John Adams could be the most honored program in TV history before the night ends. The historically sound and dramatically dazzling miniseries about the life of America's second president won eight Emmys last week at the Creative Arts portion of the competition and needs only three more tonight to tie Angels in America, the 2003 HBO miniseries based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning play about AIDS, and the 1976 ABC production Eleanor and Franklin, a made-for-TV movie about the life of President Franklin Roosevelt and his wife, Eleanor.

Let's get one thing clear from the start: I love "Mad Men," and this stylish series about life on Madison Avenue in the 1960s is by far the best drama on television. It's steeped in authentic period detail while still speaking more eloquently than any other TV drama to America today. But there is historical detail, and then there is historical detail. And when it comes to keepers of the historical flame in Baltimore, this is a city that loves its past and can be downright picky about it. "Mad Men" opens Season 3 tonight at 10 on AMC with a business trip to Baltimore.

In an uncanny repeat of last year, the same shows and many of the same performers again took top honors at "The 61st Primetime Emmy Awards" Sunday night. "Mad Men" and "30 Rock" won as best drama and comedy, respectively, while Bryan Cranston of "Breaking Bad" and Glenn Close of "Damages" won as best actor and actress in a drama series. Meanwhile, Alec Baldwin of "30 Rock" again took home the Emmy for best comedic actor. What are the odds? But there was one new and big winner on CBS Sunday: the telecast.

Before he was Bond, Daniel Craig was known as Kelso - Fluke Kelso, to be exact, in the BBC miniseries Archangel that has its U.S. TV premiere tonight on the Ion cable channel.

It focuses on a former Oxford University historian (Craig) who stumbles onto one of the deepest and darkest secrets of Soviet dictator Josef Stalin.
