The Walking Dead’s Josh McDermitt is never afraid to make himself the butt of a joke — just take one look at the fierce, 1980s hockey star’s ape drape that he has been rocking since he first joined the cast of AMC’s apocalyptic zombie drama in 2014. This fearlessness is exactly what attracted McDermitt to the role of Eugene Porter, the group’s engineer with an emotional spectrum as wide as a single strand of angel hair pasta. “He was so different from anything that I ever played, and a lot of the characters I play are loud and boisterous, big and crazy… the party animal,” McDermitt said of his supporting roles and appearances on shows like TV Land’s Retired At 35, AMC’s Mad Men, and TBS’s Angie Tribeca.

Well, in the case of Casual, not a lot to be said—garrulousness would be antithetical to the aesthetic of this series, whose second season begins streaming on Hulu on Tuesday. Casual—the let’s-call-it-a-sitcom starring Michaela Watkins as a single-mom therapist–proceeds from a place of diffidence, of setting up the mildest of jokes and seeing how softly the show can make them land. Hulu is releasing the first two episodes of the new season on Monday (weekly episodes will follow), and they establish a couple of storylines: Watkins’ Val, feeling lonely despite the fact that she lives with her daughter, Laura (Tara Lynne Barr), and her smart-alecky brother, Alex (Tommy Dewey), is searching for a friend.

Sarah Silverman dropped by Watch What Happens Live on Thursday and told host Andy Cohen about two pretty big missed opportunities she’s had in her career. When she was asked about turning down parts in Mad Men and Bridesmaids, Silverman explained, “I 100 percent didn’t turn down roles, I turned down an opportunity to even audition. John Hamm called me when he got the part for Mad Men and said, ‘You should audition for this pilot.’ And I go, ‘Uh, I’m not going to audition for a show on AMC. What is that, an old movie channel?’” As for Kristen Wiig’s much-beloved comedy, Silverman said, “I got the script for Bridesmaids, and I just read the title and was like, ‘Screw that.

She’s back! After a two-episode absence, our favorite TV teen Sally Draper reappeared with a vengeance on this week’s Mad Men. She clashed with both of her parents as she prepared for a 12-state road trip: Betty, for flirting with their former neighbor Glen (who had a creepy fixation on Betty as a boy), and Don, for paying too much attention to Sally’s 17-year-old friend. Stop being so sexy, Mom and Dad!
We got on the phone with Paré to discuss this final chapter (we think?) in Megan and Don’s not-so-storybook romance, and when she thinks things actually started to go sour for the two of them. (Hint: It was way back in Season 5.) Plus, we ask her about that awkward lunch with Harry Crane, the vocal contingent of Mad Men fans who can’t stand Megan, and the exact moment she knew Megan wasn’t going to be just a secretary.
