Mad Men Switches Premiere Song To Make Critics Shut Up

| Filed under: TV NewsMusic Minute

Mr. Weiner

Hope they're happy!

The 1960s set show is famous for it's accuracy in representing the era. So, when Mad Men showrunner Matthew Weiner got backlash from critics for being inaccurate, he almost had a melt down.

Apparently a song that was in season 5's premiere episode came out 6 months after the episode is suppose to take place. Gasp!!

(You guys, Mr. Weiner is NOT used to getting negative criticism from the press!)

So, Matt has not only removed Dusty Springfield’s The Look of Love front he episode, he apologized to critics in a letter that starts: "Dear Journalist."

He explains that the song did indeed come out later than the episode, and goes on to thank the press for pointing out his idiotic mistake. He writes:

"As someone who has a deep appreciation for details, I want to thank you for bringing this to our attention. It's a privilege to work on a show that generates an ongoing dialog with you and our amazing fans so please — keep those notes and comments coming!"

It kinda sounds like sucking up, but who cares??

That's nothing compared to the (well deserved) deep-throating critics have been giving Weiner for the past five years!

    Much ado about nothing. The songs create the mood of the era. I have no problem with a little creative license. It's not a historical biopic.
