?'Mad Men' Officially Forgotten by American Public. A once successful show on AMC, apparently about advertising executives in the 1960's or something, has now been officially forgotten by an entire nation. The latest season has been in production for eleven years, which is the longest break in a running series since The Sopranos squeezed out a final half-season nine years after its previous one. When asked to comment on the shows long shooting break one executive at AMC said, "I have no idea what show you are talking about?"
