Ratings in for 'Mad Men' season-ender

Nobody jumped or fell out a window at Sterling Cooper, but  Sunday's Season 6 finale of "Mad Men" did create a little excitement for AMC, which reports that it scored more viewers than for any other finale in the show's history.

That's 2.7 million viewers, which is up a bit from the 2.4 million viewers the show's been averaging this season, when viewers who watch it within the first seven days of its airing are factored in.

It's not, however, anywhere near the estimated 13 million the Discovery Channel says  watched Nik Wallenda cross the Grand Canyon Sunday on a tightrope without a net.

Fortunately, he didn't fall, either. But it was no doubt the idea that he might that drew the eyeballs. And he did get the walk over with just in time for "Mad Men's" East Coast start.

About this blog
As the TV critic for the Philadelphia Daily News, I've always believed my job is less about thumbs -- up or down -- and more about the conversation. Because the more choices we have, the fewer people in our lives know what we're talking about when we say, "Did you see that?" And that's when television really starts to get interesting.
