I was a little premature on the whole Kourtney & Khloe beat down Don Draper thing! Last night's Mad Men set a series record 2.8 million (2.76M, edging out the Kardashian sister's 2.7M) viewers in the initial 10pm airing and had 1.24 million adults 18-49 (another record for the show) and 1.43 million adults 25-54. AMC has to be pleased (and Mad Men fans, too)!
Counting the additional rebroadcast of the premiere, Mad Men cumulatively was viewed by around four million viewers. Look for full numbers out to three decimal places tomorrow.
The premiere is up 33.98 percent from last year's 2.06 million. Definitely a good uptick!
Here are the season two numbers I had for Mad Men (some more detailed than others, all numbers Live+SD and for the initial 10pm airing only):
