[via press release from AMC]

"MAD MEN" MARKS "THE END OF AN ERA" WITH THE SERIES' HIGHEST-RATED EPISODE EVER IN TOTAL VIEWERS AND ADULTS 25-54

SERIES FINALE DELIVERS 4.6 MILLION VIEWERS AND 2.5 MILLION ADULTS 25-54 IN LIVE+3 RATINGS

NEW YORK, NY - May 22, 2015 - "Mad Men" ended its acclaimed seven-season run Sunday night with its highest-rated episode ever among total viewers and adults 25-54. The series finale of AMC's Emmy(R) and Golden Globe(R) Award-winning drama delivered 4.6 million viewers, 2.5 million adults 25-54 and 2 million adults 18-49 in live+3 ratings, which include three days of time-shifted viewing.

"While it's true that AMC's 'Mad Men' ended with its highest-ever live+3 ratings, we believe the most meaningful metric for this iconic series will turn out to be live+forever," said Charlie Collier, AMC president. "We hope Matthew Weiner and the many extraordinarily talented people who helped elevate his vision over the last decade are smiling and finding peace like Don Draper at Esalen. This incredible team has produced 92 individual works of art, and we feel so fortunate to forever be known as the birthplace and home of 'Mad Men.' To quote Roger Sterling from the show's very first episode, 'I don't think I have to tell you what you just witnessed here.'"

Sunday's series finale also generated the most Twitter activity in the show's history and led "Mad Men" to dominate as the #1 series across all broadcast and cable on Twitter that night with nearly 50 million impressions. "Mad Men" was also the most engaging cable drama based on the DAR-TV(TM) three-day window and the most engaging program on Facebook on Sunday night.
