– Something to ponder between now and March 25: The title of “Mad Men’s” two-hour season premiere is “A Little Kiss.” Creator Matthew Weiner says he likes his episode titles to have “some kind of synergy with the show,” so start speculating as to who’s smooching who. [TV Guide]

– The premiere of Lifetime’s movie “Drew Peterson: Untouchable” scored the biggest audience for an original film on the cable channel in two years. Saturday’s (Jan. 21) debut drew 5.8 million viewers, the most since “The Pregnancy Pact” in January 2010. [Lifetime]

Steve Buscemi is returning to “30 Rock,” and he’s going behind the camera as well. The “Boardwalk Empire” star will return to play private detective Len Wosniak in an episode scheduled to air Feb. 16. He’s also directing the episode, his second time helming the show. [EW]

Katie Couric‘s
daytime chat show “Katie” will almost certainly be coming to a station
near you in the fall. The show has been cleared to stations covering 93
percent of the country, including 95 of the top 100 markets. [ABC]

– Starz has found the lead for its upcoming series “Da Vinci’s Demons.” British actor Tom Riley will play the title role in the series, which imagines Leonardo da Vinci as a kind of Renaissance-era superhero. It’s scheduled to premiere in early 2013. [Starz]
