The Television Critics Association winter press tour is going on now in sunny L.A., and I am following it online from freezing Brooklyn. So far, it seems, the biggest news to emerge has been something that didn’t happen—cancer-sufferer Patrick Swayze was hospitalized and missed the session for A&E’s The Beast. But here are some bits and pieces of the news so far: 

* AMC releases some more details about its remake/reinterpretation of The Prisoner, and is streaming the original series online. Also, Mad Men will be back this summer.

* In Treatment is getting new patients and a new schedule. And Paul Weston is now my neighbor in Brooklyn. Alan Sepinwall has an interview

* More deadliest programming from Discovery. 

* Richard Belzer pronounces NBC “dying.”
