'Mad Men' finds hype in a strange place
I've actually been liking "Mad Men" so far, but does anyone else snicker when, during one of the commercial breaks, the show's announcer intones that it is, "One of the best reviewed shows of the summer?" You mean against such tough competition as "America's Got Talent"? What an unintentionally hilarious advertising claim. Anyway, above is a preview of this week's episode. Credibility watch: don't you think the agency's retailing client would fire its ass on the spot given that none of the people on the account have been to the store?
