Louis Ck Releases New $5 Special, Defends Msg Show Cancellation in Email to Fans
The comedian also urges readers to go see “Boyhood” and “Into the Woods”

Louis Ck dropped new $5 stand-up special “Live at the Comedy Store” — his sixth (video below) — on Tuesday, and celebrated with a very lengthy, occasionally rambling email blast to fans.

Plugging his independent project, the comedian’s note discussed his history with the industry, lamented having to cancel the last of four Madison Square Garden concerts for underwhelming Winter Storm Juno and even pushed his followers to see “Boyhood” and “Into the Woods.”

Ck’s personal rep told TheWrap that there are no plans to reschedule the Msg date at the moment.

Roger Sterling Was Schtupping A Former Disney Star

Roger Sterling Was Schtupping A Former Disney Star
Former Disney Channel fans may have recognized a familiar face on "Mad Men" last night: Danielle Panabaker.

Note: Do not read on if you have not yet seen Season 6, Episode 6 of AMC's "Mad Men," titled "For Immediate Release."

In the most recent "Mad Men" episode, Panabaker played Daisy McCluskey, a flight attendant that was sleeping with Roger Sterling (John Slattery) and ended up proving helpful when it came to Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce (and Cutler Gleason & Chaough) nabbing the Chevy account.

The now 25-year-old Panabaker got her start doing Disney Channel Original movies like 2004's "Stuck in the Suburbs" (with current "Saturday Night Live" cast member Taran Killam) and "Read It and Weep," a 2006 Disney movie she did with her younger sister and fellow actress Kay Panabaker.

Opening with the possibility of Scdp going public and ending with a merger between Scdp and Ted Chaough's Cgc -- yes, folks, Peggy and Don are co-workers again -- this was a hour packed with bombshells (Pete catches his stepfather at a whorehouse!), explosions (Joan's fury over Don dumping the Jaguar account) and killer one-liners (did we mention Julia Ormond's return as Megan's mother?).

There was so much hot-blooded ad agency action, Don didn't even have time to reflect on how miserable he is ... on the inside.

[Note: In the spirit of showrunner Matthew Weiner declaring that this season is about Dr. Arnold Rosen telling Don, "People will do anything to alleviate their anxiety," we're tracking the happiness of key characters week by week.]

The "Mad Men" happiness index, week five:

1) Don (last week, #8): From the very start, "Mad Men" has been a show driven by Don Draper's unhappiness, but if there's
