Though ratings are rarely the best way to determine a show’s specific impact on society at large, each year’s top-rated shows often lack a surprising number of much-talked-about series, and here are 7 shows whose fame was far more prevalent by word-of-mouth over eyes-on-screens.
On Sunday night, the world said goodbye to Don, Betty, Pete, Joan, Peggy and the rest of the Mad Men squad, and Jon Hamm shared some amusing thoughts on who he'd like to see return for a spinoff series in the future.
Mad Men wrapped up this week, closing out the stories of Don Draper & Co. with a mostly neat little bow, and a bottle of Coke. For those who missed it, or want to revisit the finale moments, which set the course for the characters' ever-afters,
Tonight is the 72nd Annual Golden Globe Awards, which inevitably means it’s the 72nd year in a row where fans of TV and cinema inevitably get pissed off that their favorite show/movie/performer didn’t get the proper recognition in marble and gold statuette form. Let's reminisce about bad decisions of the past, shall we?
With each new year comes new beginnings, whether in the form of resolutions to become happier with oneself, or in the form of frustration over trying to get taxes done. But, sadly, 2015 in particular will mark the endings for a slew of popular TV series all over the network-sphere.
“Weird Al” Yankovic continued his no holds barred pop culture takeover with a silly and spirited performance at tonight’s Emmy Awards. His targets were a selection of this year’s nominees, as he added lyrics to some of TV’s most memorable instrumental theme songs.
Good news dropped today for folks who love AMC’s long-running drama Mad Men. Lionsgate announced earlier today that the drama’s final season will be headed to Blu-ray, DVD and Digital, soon. Since the second half of the seventh season doesn’t hit the schedule until the spring of 2015, the release announcement might seem a bit premature. But that’s where the bad news comes in.
Following up on word that Mad Men had a pretty dismal final-season debut, there's better news today. Factoring in DVR users who watched the Season 7 premiere episode in the days following Sunday night's broadcast, the total number of viewers shifted up significantly, with a total of 3.7 million viewers tuning in.
Mad Men returned for the start of the first half of its seventh and final season last night, and the ratings weren't good. In fact, the series' Season 7 premiere was down more than a million viewers by comparison to the 3.4 million who tuned in for the Season 6 premiere last Spring.
I’m a die-hard Simpsons fan who shamelessly threw away my apologist hat long ago, and while the rise in episode quality over the last few years is arguable, there’s no denying Matt Groening’s crew has finally learned how to stay abreast of the zeitgeist. (Think the recent Letterman tribute and the constantly changing opening credits and guest-animated couch gags.)
We're flying up, up, and away from the Mad Men we once knew — at least as evidenced by the new photos released today. Given that the AMC series is exactly one month away from premiering its seventh and final season we are in (cue the musical intro) the final countdown (dun-na-nuh-nun, dun-na-nuh-nuh-nun) mode. But it seems as though things are up in the air for the familiar faces of Sterling Cooper & Partners, and they’re all headed out to Cali-forn-i-a.
So, AMC has gotten the ball rolling on the Mad Men season seven promotional onslaught! Yesterday’s brought us a 15-second wordless teaser, and today we have the key art featuring popular graphic designer of the 50s and 60s, Milton Glaser. And it’s no accident that the series’ creator, Matthew Weiner, chose this particular artist to craft the poster’s colorful artwork.
Oh my goodness, oh my goodness, oh my goodness! Finally, one of those stereotypically thin but still exciting clips from the final season of AMC’s hit Mad Men has hit the Internet. With just over a month to go until Don Draper (Jon Hamm) returns to his drinking, womanizing ways — for the last time. And frankly, the excitement is palpable — even if there isn't any in this teaser.
To the average spectator, Don Draper might seem like a rather dapper, put-together dude, but under the surface, we know that's not the case. In fact, Mad Men's spent seasons giving us a peek beneath the surface of Don Draper's mask, peeling back the layers of booze, cigarettes, women and secrets to help us try to understand this guy better.
