There's a new glimpse of Rick Grimes' attempt to reach Hershel's Farm, which should commence in less than a month. Even if we only get six or seven episodes before The Walking Dead goes on hiatus until next year, that should be enough to get a taste of how things are going before the Darabont-less episodes hit early next year.
Also in minor news, it looks like another kerfuffle between AMC and Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner has been resolved in Weiner's favor. AMC apparently wanted to cut each episode of this upcoming season by two minutes to create more time for commercials to air, but it looks like Lionsgate and Weiner successfully fought back, with each episode this season being its normal 47 minutes. Originally they were supposed to be 45 minutes, with Weiner having the option to release 47-minute cuts on Netflix and DVD, but now they'll all be their normal length. As Slashfilm points out, the difference would've meant almost a half-episode difference over the entire season.
AMC's weird, man. They bend over backwards at any pressure from the Mad Men people, but fire Darabont after flying him out to Comic-Con to promote his show. Maybe things would be different had The Walking Dead brought them any of those precious, precious Emmys.
