During the final stretch of Breaking Bad, AMC announced plans to stay in Albuquerque with Better Call Saul. And though The Walking Dead is still going strong, AMC is expanding that world with a companion show. So as the end of Mad Men looms, might AMC consider keeping the party going with another new series?
As it turns out, they already have. The network reportedly looked at several possible ideas for a Mad Men spinoff, including one set in the modern day. Find out what other concepts they considered — and why none of them came to fruition — after the jump. Read More »

This spring marks the end of an era. For the characters of Mad Men, that era is the tumultuous 1960s; for viewers of Mad Men, it’s the show’s seven-season run as one of the finest dramas on television.
AMC split the last season of Mad Men into two parts, Breaking Bad-style, so that the first half aired last year while the second is scheduled to kick off in April. To prepare us for the end, the network has released a slew of promo pics for the final season. See the Mad Men final season images after the jump.
UPDATE: The first Mad Men final season promo has just been released, along with one more photo — check ‘em out at the end of the post. Read More »

Emmy voters are currently deciding on the best in television over the past year and, all over the streets of Los Angeles, your favorite TV shows are plastered on billboards. The Walking Dead, True Detective and many more are being pushed by their respective networks, hoping voters check them out or at least have their memories jogged about shows that finished a while ago.
Of all the ads emblazoned up and down Sunset Blvd or Highland Ave., the ones for Mad Men really stand out. Which makes sense. A show about advertising should have the best advertising. While the show’s creative team has done a great job with that in the past, these ads take things to another level. Check them out below. Read More »

With less than a month to go until the premiere, AMC has released a new Mad Men Season 7 trailer — or several, rather. Given how secretive showrunner Matthew Weiner is about spoilers, it shouldn’t come as a huge shock that they don’t give away a whole lot about what we’ll be seeing next season. Nevertheless, we’re just happy to see our old SC&P friends again.
Watch the promos and check out a whole bunch of new images featuring Jon Hamm, Elisabeth Moss, Christina Hendricks, John Slattery, January Jones, and many more after the jump.

Now that we’ve all finished analyzing and overanalyzing that psychedelic Mad Men poster, it’s time to turn our attention to the first Mad Men final season images.
As Mad Men marketing goes, these pictures look fairly straightforward. They just show Don Draper (Jon Hamm) at the airport and on an airplane, with Megan (Jessica Paré), Peggy (Elisabeth Moss), and Roger (John Slattery) taking turns beside him. But the accompanying interviews with showrunner Matthew Weiner should give you something to chew on until the show comes back.
See the pictures and read Weiner’s comments after the jump.

The first Mad Men Season 7 teaser is here. Like most teasers, it doesn’t reveal much. What it does remind us is April is going to be a fantastic month of TV with this Emmy-winning show coming back along with Game of Thrones and others.
Don Draper is seen slowly getting off a TWA plane and putting on a fedora. That’s it, but it’s awesome anyway. Check out the Mad Men Season 7 teaser below and also read about a new addition to the final season’s ad campaign. Read More »

For the past three years, summer has brought with it the start of a new season of Breaking Bad. That won’t happen in 2014, but something (hopefully) almost as good will. AMC has announced that the spinoff Better Call Saul will premiere in November, though they have not yet set an exact date.
Meanwhile, flagship drama Mad Men will return for the first half of its seventh season on Sunday, April 13 at 10 PM; the second half will air sometime next year. And the week before, on Sunday, April 6 at 9 PM, we’ll get the premiere of the Revolutionary War drama Turn, starring Jamie Bell as a spy for George Washington.
Finally, the new drama Halt and Catch Fire, about the 1980s computer boom, will arrive in June, followed later in the summer by the return of Hell on Wheels. [HitFix]
