Mad Men Drops in Season 7 Premiere

April 14, 2014  |  Media Week  |  No Comments

AMC may have been hoping that the so-called “Netflix Effect” would boost the ratings for the Season 7 premiere of Mad Men , but in a highly competitive Sunday 10 p.m. slot, Matt Weiner’s period piece put up its worst opening numbers since 2008. According to Nielsen live-plus-same-day data, the first installment of the bifurcated final season of Mad Men delivered 2.3 million viewers and a 0.8 in the 18-49 demo, marking a decline of 32 percent and 27 percent, respectively, versus last season’s two-hour opener. Not since Season 2, when Mad Men drew 2.06 million viewers, has the moody drama debuted to a smaller audience. (That episode also delivered a 0.8 in the dollar demo.)

Tell Everyone What You’re Doing This Sunday Night With Mad Men Out of Office

April 10, 2014  |  Media Week  |  No Comments

You can choose one of seven other characters, too. It's a fun tool for die-hards, and a smart way to drive the natural symbiosis between TV and social media. Dubbing it "Mad Men Out of Office" seems a bit of a misnomer (as much as posting to Facebook may feel like clocking in to some). If you were going to be in the office on a Sunday night, you should obviously quit and watch Mad Men.
