AMC’s Mad Men finale on Sunday reached its highest ratings in the show’s history.
The season 6 finale had 2.7 million viewers. The show is averaging 2.5 million viewers this season.
AMC President and General Manager Charlie Collier said,“There is nothing else on television like Mad Men, and for the series in its sixth season to deliver the highest-rated finale ever–and an episode that critics and fans have already declared an instant classic–is a testament to everyone who brings this world to life.”
Entertainment Weekly reports, “Sunday offered a few major episodes in addition to Mad Men. There was the premiere of Lifetime’s Devious Maids, along with the debut of ABC’s Whodunit and NBC’s Crossing Lines. Plus there was Discovery’s live tightrope walk across the Grand Canyon, which also set a record with 8.5 million viewers.”
There will be big changes in the upcoming season 7 of Mad Men. After the shocking season 6 finale, the viewers see a big change in authority and status quo among the show’s characters.
