Best show ever! Best TV ever! Bring it back! America’s Douton Abbys
I can’t understand the decision to cancel the show. Watching the last episode reminded me of the same felling I had when I was a child and we had gone to visit family and it was time to go back home or when family came to visit us and were leaving to go back home….empty and wishing in a way they would stay longer. I’ll miss Mad Men.
I just found the show last week and love it, I hate the thought of it ending.
The producers should have advertised it more or something. Great show.
Too bad you just found it, it’s only been been on since since 2007. You can catch the begining on Netflix, great show…
I am so sad on the canceling of mad men. Best show on tv, why cancel? I missed all of last season because I never knew when it came back on, I looked for it and just never could find it until this season. Got caught up to the finale. For me John Hamm is like John whayne, I’m really up set over all this. Like Shane I want to scream mad men come back mad men come back!! I was born in 52, I was a kid of the 60s and loved it all. This show meant so much… Read more »
What a waste to pull the plug on Mad Men. There is so much garbage on the air, and that a quality show like Mad Men should be pulled just underscores how absurd the entire t.v. industry is.
So agree .. Truly , the best drama on air . Why would they cancel?
I love watching mad men, last season my 27 yr old son, and my wife became a big fan, one of the top shows on tv. AMC has a winner, from talking to friends and coworkers many love this show also, most just recently got hooked on the show because of Netflix, now they watch on Sunday night.
Please renew, many new fans out here.
I like the show Mad Men a lot. I watched it a lot and thought it was so funny and Halerious. I would love it if they Renewed it for a Eighth Season. I just havnt watched a few episodes cause I forgot what Channel it was on and what day they played it. So I would love it if they renewed it for a Eighth Season and that it would not end. And that the snow would please continue and not end.
The quality of the aforementioned programs are excellent, and better than some some movies showing on the big screen. The programs on big network are placed against other network losers and then the audience goes back to their lame reality shows, thus we have programs being cancelled after one season. But when you have cable shows of this quality a following (usually, word of mouth) develops; and then we get hooked into a place that when the time comes for it’s conclusion it leaves us wanting more. I would like to see more of these shows but will see if… Read more »
It is hard to understand why TV creators and networks choose to end successful series when they are still going strong. Recent examples are Breaking Bad, Mad Men, and Justified, which are cable series that only produce 10-16 episodes per year.
Viewers of these shows are not tired of them yet for some reason their opinion does not matter. Because of that, I do not get interested in new shows because the investment of time is not worth seeing it end too soon.
