'Mad Men' fifth season premiere delivers ratings record
The viewers of “Mad Men” can operate a parking meter! Or at least their remote controls: the long-awaited fifth-season return of the AMC drama delivered 3.5 million viewers. 

The two-hour premiere, which came after a 17-month hiatus, was the most-watched episode in the series’ history, with 1.6 million viewers among adults 18-49, a 30% increase from the Season 4 premiere. 

Last season, the drama averaged 2.3 million total viewers. 

We’re sure the boys and gals at Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce are all singing “Zou Bisou Bisou” right now.
