‘Mad Men’ season 6 opens with big ratings, but lower that ‘Mad Men’ season 5 premiere

AMC’s Mad Men returned Sunday night for its sixth season with 3.4 million viewers, the second-highest audience in the show’s history.

Overall, the show drew 3.4 million viewers as a whole, along with a 1.4 million in the 18-49 demographic. While these totals are both a slight increase over the average for season 5, it does mark a slight drop from that first episode last year that featured Megan Draper’s iconic “Zou Bisou Bisou” performance.

Some of the new synopsis of upcoming episodies:

According to the source, episode five is titled “The Flood” and it includes the very short description of, “Peggy makes plans for the future. Roger courts a potential client.”

For episode six, “For Immediate Release,” Roger will be changing his approach to start a new business. Pete will have an awkward run-in with one of his clients.

“Man with a Plan” will be episode seven, and the SCDP will try to pacify competing clients and an unexpected guest blind-sides Pete.

Finally, episode eight, “The Crash,” will bring Don a surprise visitor as Peggy seeks inspiration.
