8:40pm: Season 6 of Mad Men will almost certainly feature the ascent of Peggy Olson, the descent of Don Draper, and the improbable continuation of Roger Sterling's life. But with the death of Lane Pryce, the moral center (centre?) of Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce, to what levels of depravity will Don Draper fall? And yes, Lane was the moral center of the office, perhaps no more so than when he embezzled from the firm. And what of Megan and Betty and literally scores of other characters that do not matter? What of MICHAEL GINSBERG, the wittier, shorter version of Don?  Introductions: My name is Mike Hall (@mrhall). In real life, I'm the head of digital for NESN. In my spare time, I watch Mad Men obsessively. Every single day. Therefore, I'm your best partner for tonight's two-hour extravagaza, in which Don Draper will probably walk through a doorway. I had written live blogs for Mad Men from my personal site. Ben Koo offered me the opportunity to write here at Awful Advertisements, and my promo of my personal site just sounded like an awful ad, so I think I'll fit right in! Let's get down to it! 8:56pm: Mad Men is just moments away, and nothing gets me revved up more than watching Julia Roberts save the world. There's not much overlap between the world of Erin Brockovich and Don Draper, unless Matthew Weiner's done an amazing time shift. 9:01pm: Betty says "Ohmigod" or Megan says it, or something. Don then reads poetry by the beach. Such a hard-knock life. 9:03pm: Megan bought pot. I almost wrote "bot pot." Anyway, she and Don will get high and watch hula dancers in Hawaii because life is perfect.  9:04pm: Megan says she wants to avoid getting too tan. Do people from Quebec even see sun? Her Quebecois accent is really strong this season. 9:05pm: Megan is apparently on some sort of TV show or soap opera, so her career is taking off while Don's (presumably) is slowing down. Also, the Hawaiian emcee hit on her pretty hardcore, so Don is very much a sad lei tonight.
