AMC’s Mad Men continues its 7th and final season tonight, but have viewers of the ad man drama grown tires of the Don Draper lifestyle? According to Deadline.com the ratings for the premiere episode weren’t up to snuff. Here’s how they characterized the numbers from season 7.
The end is nigh for Mad Men, and last night the series had its lowest season premiere since 2008′s Season 2.
Certainly not what AMC hoped for in the show’s final season. The AMC suits definitely had visions of Breaking Bad’s final season dancing in their heads. While that show ended its run at the zenith of acclaim, Mad Men appears to be limping towards the finish line. Viewers have moved on to the HBO’s two hour Sunday block of Dragons, Nerds, and Liars.
Here’s the episode synopsis of the episode from AMC.
Don takes an impromptu trip. Betty has lunch with a friend. Harry lobbies for a cause. The partners consider a questionable asset.
The promo for the episode, titled Field Trip, is chock full of ominous phone calls, and sad Don face. Don being sad is like Superman without his powers.
Date: Sunday, April 27th
Episode Title: Field Trip
