Happy anniversary, ‘Mad Men’! You didn’t create the Golden Age of TV, but you certainly helped make it a thing!

Today marks the 10th anniversary of the debut of Mad Men. Here is a history of how the improbable show came to be on an improbable network, changing TV forever.

The question, though, is 10 years later, when will AMC find its next Mad Men? It really hasn’t had a breakout hit in a while.

Here’s Kyle McLaughlin making a Twin Peaks-themed bento box, because OK.

But in even more surreal Twin Peaks-related news, Herman Cain is tweeting out random images from the show with unrelated comments. Weirdo.

And if you want to take a Twin Peaks-themed vacation, these folks will point you in the right direction. Also available: info on Outlander, The Walking Dead, Breaking Bad, The Crown and Westworld-themed trips.

So, has Game of Thrones finally surpassed The Walking Dead as the most-watched cable show? Well, it’s complicated.

In completely unsurprising news, Game of Thrones is stealing porn’s audience. There is a very bad “winter is coming” joke in there somewhere.

We are going to learn American Horror Story‘s title tomorrow. In the meantime, here are some dumb guesses.

Meanwhile, this very convoluted piece tries to claim that yesterday’s bee picture might suggest the return of Lana Winters, but I honestly couldn’t follow the logic.

Our friend over at Binging with Babish takes on Saturday Night Live‘s taco from Taco Town, and TWIST! he describes it as “pretty good”:
