MAD MEN Finale Breaks Ratings Record; Ties Season 5 Finale with 2.7 Million Viewers

     June 24, 2013


Mad Men wrapped up its sixth season last night with a stellar finale (read Allison’s recap here) that sets the AMC drama up for some fascinating developments in the show’s seventh and final season next year, and the superb hour also hit a ratings record for the series.  Bringing in 2.7 million viewers and a 2.1 HH rating, “In Care Of” marked the show’s highest rated finale in history and was on par with season five’s record-setting 2.7 million viewers.  Though the total viewership was down sharply from the season six premiere’s 3.4 million viewers, the series still averaged 2.5 million viewers for its penultimate season.
