AMC’s ‘Mad Men’ Renewed

Mad MenHave you see AMC Mad Men? Interesting, smart… different. Yep, I didn’t think it would make it past season one either. But, I stand corrected. AMC has picked up the series for a second season—13 more episodes. If you haven’t seen it, it takes place in the advertising world of 1960. That alone is interesting enough (to me, anyway), but the characters are intriguing and acting is top-notch too. And why not? Created by Sopranos writer and producer Matthew Weiner, you couldn’t possibly expect a sub-par series. The ratings, however, have been less than stellar, with 1.1 million viewers tuning in initially. Of course, it is AMC we’re talking about, so I don’t think they can count on ratings gold, plus this is the network’s first original series, so cut them some slack. Catch dashing Jon Hamm as Don Draper, the ad agency’s creative director and man of mystery (and adultery); Vincent Kartheiser, Elisabeth Moss, January Jones, Christina Hendricks and John Slattery (I’m guessing that means we’ll be seeing less of him on Desperate Housewives this season?) also star. The next season of Mad Men will air in summer 2008.
