The ‘Mad Men’ Bookshelf: What Will Don Draper Read in 1969?

Few shows in television history have given their writers half as much fun as Matthew Weiner and his crew have with Mad Men.

10 Career-Changing Music Moments in the Last 10 Years of TV

In the early 2000s, TV went through a transformation to become a medium capable of artistic achievement on par with film. The power of television has not always been harnessed when it comes to music, but the change in TV coincided with its emergence as a platform as powerful as radio in breaking new artists to the masses. Today the game continues, with music supervisors being courted by labels as much, if not more, than tastemaking rock writers.
