7975: Mad Men Mention.
The latest issue of Rolling Stone declares AMC series Mad Men is “the Best Show on TV.” Um, must have missed the memo on that revelation.
The advertising surrounding Mad Men has always been more effective than the advertising it portrays. After all, this is a program whose ratings wouldn’t warrant a full season on a major network. The actors don’t possess the skills of their peers—honestly, does anyone really think January Jones deserved an Emmy nomination? The actress portraying Sally Draper might have nabbed a Nickelodean Kids’ Choice Award if she hadn’t been forced to execute a masturbation scene.
Mad Men is the best show on television? Right, and Tad Winter and Phil Smith are in line for a Gold Lion.
