Two glitzy teasers have landed: One for the much-anticipated sixth season of "Mad Men," promising the "affair of the year," and one for Steven Soderbergh's made-for-TV HBO film "Behind the Candelabra." As disparate as the saga of a late-1960s ad agency and Liberace's love affair may be, the two promos go together in an odd way.

"Behind the Candelabra" stars Michael Douglas as famed pianist and vocalist Liberace, Matt Damon as his much younger lover, and Rob Lowe, Dan Akroyd and Debbie Reynolds. The film is set to premiere on HBO on May 26.

AMC's "Mad Men" Season Six premieres on April 7.
