Did you all forget it was on or something??? We expected a lot more than this!

Season four of Mad Men premiered Sunday night to a new high for the series, but pitiful numbers where cable television is concerned.

The show got about 2.9 million people to tune in.

Okay, pitiful maybe a bit strong…except it's not! Seriously, there was so much hype! Where the hell was everyone?!

Fear not, True Blood! You vamps still own the night!

    asshat, that way more than tuned in last season. get informed. this site is retarded. you go on other sites to se what they report on and then you report it here?



  2. 2

    I LOVE the show - I just was busy! It's summer time - people aren't just sitting around!

    You know nothing, Perez. It's evident in our culture that truly intelligent, adult shows get low rating because audiences are impatient and don't like to be challenged, plus AMC doesn't have the 'cool' factor of HBO or the wide reaching ability of a major network so of course a sub-3 million audience is to be expected. 2.9 million was quite high in many people's opinions, truth be told.

    I watched it! Love my Don Draper. The thing is that it is on several times after it is on the first time. You can pretty much catch the episodes at other times. Maybe that is why the numbers were low. Still the best show on TV!

    And to add insult to injury the premiere SUCKED. I was so excited to have the show back but boy everyone was so UNLIKEABLE. They better shape up or the people that are watching will stop…

    2.9 mill is actually pretty good for a show that isnt on a major network! I assume AMC isnt part of a basic cable package so not everyone would have access to it! They hype it so much to get the regular viewers back! research perez…ever heard of it?



  7. 7

    the last 3 seasons were on in August and they bumped this up to July - maybe that is why

    My Boys premiered that night and like you said, True Blood too, they need to go ahead and switch nights, my Sundays are full.

    I'm afraid this show is a media creation. I have friends from all walks of life and not one of them watches this show. This show is a show biz "insider' favorite. It wins awards and is praised endlessly but few people outside of the industry actually watch it. Then again, the TV viewing public kept "According to Jim" on the air for 8 years, so I should judge too harshly *sigh*

    No one can afford cable so we have to wait until they show it online or release on DVD. Ohh and it's summer like Antony said.

    This may come as a shock, but it's actually okay to have an occasional show not geared toward gay men. I know, I know… it's crazy! Just stop the hate!



  12. 12

    If it was actually shown on tv in Canada like it used to be (and we weren't forced to buy it for $3.50 an episode on iTunes) I would have definitely tuned in. Looks like I'll have to wait until it comes out on DVD because I have no desire to pay to watch it on a laptop.



  13. 13

    Actually Sunday was the first time I've ever watched the show. I liked it

    I think the problem is the incredibly large time gaps the network puts in between seasons. I was really into the show last year, but after waiting sooooooo long for the new season, I have almost completely forgot what the show was about.



  15. 15

    I was watching. My crush isn't on Don Draper, but Roger "the silver fox" Sterling.

    Re: Sonia6349 – just because none of your friends watch the show doesn't mean it is only industry "insiders" who are watching and then promoting it for awards. that's an ignorant way to think. "i don't personally know anyone who watches it so that MUST mean its only people in the industry" well i don't know a single person in the industry but i know plenty of people who are watching. im in fashion, several friends in accounting, one nurse, one architect, one graphic designer…..the list goes on but that is the people from ALL walks of life that i personally know watching it and loving it, let alone the other 2.9 million people that i don't personally know. although, that must be all the showbiz people right??



  18. 18

    I blame AMC. This show could be "advertised" much better but I did watch and it was an Great episode!! One of the best shows on TV!



  19. 19

    Mad Men needs to go to HBO or Showtime!



  20. 20

    Perez (or whoever is writing this) you're an idiot. Those are good ratings for a cable series. Much higher than the Wire or Breaking Bad. It had more viewers than past episodes moron.

    Re: CumpasFilms

    Asshat also forgets that DVRs fuck the ratings up nowadays, meaning that someone who DVR'd it for later doesn't count towards being someone who "watched" it.



  22. 22

    Watching True Blood?



  23. 23

    True blood rules… then in September Dexter will take over!!!! ❤❤❤❤❤



  24. 24

    The show sucks. Noone gives a rats ass about a two bit cable network show, when we would rather be watching Big Brother, which incidentally, is seeing significantly high ratings this year.

    JUST BECAUSE YOU DON'T HAVE THE INTELLECT OR CLASS TO WATCH THIS SHOW, ITS WAYYY OVER YOUR HEAD, DOESN'T MEAN IT'S NOT THE BEST SHOW OUT THERE RIGHT NOW. Re: Baron von Fleck – OMG! THIS IS WHAT WE'VE COME TO? YOU THINK BIG BROTHER IS BETTER THAN MAD MEN? SERIOUSLY, I HOPE YOU WERE BEING SARCASTIC, OR ELSE YOUR LIKE WHAT 15 YRS. OLD? I LIKE BB AND ALL BUT AS FAR AS WRITING, ACTING AND AWARDS GO..UM, YEAH.
