IT'S TEMPTING to suggest Jon Hamm may already have done what he most needed to do to move on from Don Draper, a character whose passage through the '60s may not have been conducive to living into his 60s. But I've never confused Hamm with Draper and when the "Mad Men" star met with reporters in January to talk about the AMC drama's final seven episodes, we didn't know he'd be checking into a rehab facility the following month for treatment of...

POP CULTURE'S most terrifying creature returns to the screen in "Godzilla. " But it's not Godzilla, it's Bryan Cranston, walking around a lab in a white coat and safety glasses, and wouldn't it be fun to see what Godzilla would do after ingesting a large amount of Walter White's crystal blue? Cranston, though, is Walter by association only. Like most of the overqualified actors in the movie (Juliette Binoche, Sally Hawkins, Ken Watanabe), he is mostly around to stare, agape, at some unnamed Thing of Awe. There's a snarky movie term for this expression - the Spielberg Face.

The Emmys kept up their tradition of few surprises last night as NBC's 30 Rock was named best comedy for the third consecutive year at the 61st Annual Primetime Emmy Awards and AMC's stylish Mad Men took down its second straight best-drama Emmy. Including Emmys presented at last weekend's so-called creative arts awards ceremony, PBS's Little Dorrit and HBO's Grey Gardens tied for most Emmys: seven. And, as usual, HBO led the Emmy parade with 21. NBC was second with 16; ABC had 11; Fox, 10; CBS, 9. Not a lot of suspense with the best-comedy award, as a confused Bob Newhart gave away the winner at the beginning of his rambling comments, confirming it as he looked at an already-opened envelope at the end. Referring to NBC's new five-night-a-week Jay Leno Show, 30 Rock star and executive producer Tina Fey thanked the folks at NBC for "keeping us on the air even though we are so much more expensive than a talk show.

CAN YOU SAY three-peat? Upper Darby's Tina Fey can. NBC's "30 Rock," the show Fey created and stars in, won its third consecutive Emmy for outstanding comedy last night, as AMC's "Mad Men" won its second in a row for outstanding drama. You can dress up the Emmys - heck, you can suit 'em up in a white tux and black tie and have them sing a funny song - but you can only take the people who vote for them so far. Or as Emmys host Neil Patrick Harris put it last night after CBS' "The Amazing Race" won the "reality" show competition Emmy for the seventh year in a row: "Congratulations, guys.

THERE ACTUALLY were upsets and first-time winners at the 62nd Annual Primetime Emmy Awards, but on a night when AMC?s ?Mad Men? won best drama for the third year in a row and ABC?s ?Modern Family? won for comedy, perhaps the biggest surprise was that the awards show itself was entertaining. The evening got off to a "Glee"-ful start, with a pretaped opening in which host Jimmy Fallon put together a pickup team of singers from the cast of the Fox hit series and from assorted other nominees - Jon Hamm ("Mad Men")

Last night was a big one for the olden days on ABC, as the 60th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards cast a lugubrious eye backward on TV history and made HBO's John Adams miniseries its most honored program. And it was big for Upper Darby native Tina Fey, who won three Emmys. Her NBC series, 30 Rock, was named best comedy series for the second year in a row, and she was named best lead actress and writer in a comedy series. Her costar, Alec Baldwin, netted the lead comic-actor Emmy.

BREAKING BAD. 10 p.m. Sunday, AMC. FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS. 8 p.m. tomorrow, NBC 10. MASTERPIECE MYSTERY! ZEN. 9 p.m. Sunday, WHYY. FOR WEEKS NOW, people have asked me if there's still time to get in on "Breaking Bad," the AMC series about a high-school chemistry teacher-turned-meth dealer that enters its fourth season Sunday. Here's what I say: Where there's life (and Netflix and AMC's late-night reruns), there's hope. Even for Walt White (Bryan Cranston)

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. - Kobe Bryant is thinking about his legacy. Not to mention his marketing. As the Lakers star - and Lower Merion High alum - approaches his 36th birthday next month, he's at work on "Kobe Bryant's Muse," a documentary that will air on Showtime this fall. Bryant, who arrived late for his session Friday at the Television Critics Association, joking, "I was out looking for a head coach," said the idea for a film "about who or what has inspired me" grew out of his lying in bed one night, thinking of, "What's going to be the next Nike campaign and what the story's going to be. " (It was his wife, Vanessa, who supplied the word "muse," he said.)

BREAKING BAD. 10 p.m. Sunday, AMC.   WHERE DO you go when you're responsible for one of the more indelible scenes of televised homicide in recent history? If you're Walt White (Bryan Cranston) of "Breaking Bad" and his creator, Vince Gilligan, you go right back to work. Because winning, it turns out, isn't everything. Yes, Gus Fring (Giancarlo Esposito) is dead — please tell me no one's had lingering doubts about that — and Walt, the once mild-mannered high school chemistry teacher who struck it rich cooking meth after he was diagnosed with lung cancer in Season 1, is once again broke as Season 5 launches Sunday with an episode titled "Live Free or Die. " Remission or no remission, he's not going to live forever, and the decision to put his estranged wife Skyler (Anna Gunn)

The prime-time Emmys, with all their weirdness, arrive Sunday night, scheduled as a sort of unofficial launch of the new television season. It's the right time. The vagaries of the network rotation brought the awards ceremony into August last year because NBC didn't want to preempt its highest-rated show, Sunday Night Football. And the Emmys can't go later, because the new TV season officially starts Monday, and nobody wants to preempt new and returning series. The Emmys are supposed to be this big TV deal, but nobody wants to risk a lot of money or ratings points on the show.
