Sally Draper, Yale Class of '22?

It's Sally Draper! Eleven-year-old Kiernan Shipka, who plays the troubled daughter of Jon Hamm's Don Draper in AMC's "Mad Men," is here to talk about "Smooch," a Hallmark Channel where she'll be starring opposite former child actress Kellie Martin. "The first thing I said to her is that she has to go to Yale, and she agreed," Martin said when asked what advice she'd given her young co-star. Not that Shipka seems in need of advice. Asked if "Smooch" had been a more relaxing experience than "Mad Men," she replied, "Nothing in acting is actually that stressful for me, because I love it. It's my passion!" As for "Mad Men," "I'm not allowed to watch the show. I just more focus on the Sally parts."

About this blog
As the TV critic for the Philadelphia Daily News, I've always believed my job is less about thumbs -- up or down -- and more about the conversation. Because the more choices we have, the fewer people in our lives know what we're talking about when we say, "Did you see that?" And that's when television really starts to get interesting.
