“Mad Men” Grabs Biggest Season Finale Ratings in Six Seasons

And last night was action packed for “Mad Men,” with a few cliffhangers designed to keep us chomping at the bit for more in March 2014. It’s hard to believe that “Mad Men” will end, but Matt Weiner is determined to wrap it up in 14 hour long episodes.
