Re: Mad Men season 6 (spoilers)

Their treatment of talent will probably continue to be a problem -- I know Bryan Cranston had a show he wanted to do at AMC, but the network balked, saying they were more interested in doing shows with broader appeal, like The Walking Dead -- but their bigger problem has been that nothing they've done lately has made waves like their early successes in scripted drama (in this cycle of scripted shows on AMC, anyway).

Not unlike Showtime before it, there was a brief period when people were talking about AMC as a successor to HBO. Now their biggest hit is a horror show, and they have gotten into reality programming and talk shows.
