As the saying goes, good things come to those who wait- and last night’s “Mad Men” Season Five premiere was definitely worth the extended hiatus.
According to a report, 3.5 million viewers tuned in to the 9pm airing to see what Don Draper and the gang were getting up to- up 21% from the Season Four premiere.
When added in with the viewers at the 11pm encore presentation, “Mad Men” scored a total of 4.4 million viewers total.
AMC president Charlie Collier told press, “Almost five years ago, with a focus on distinction and quality, AMC launched Mad Men as the first series in its commitment to original scripted dramatic television. Mad Men set the bar high and we are incredibly proud that it continues to engage audiences looking for unexpected, unconventional and uncompromising television.”
