As Matthew Weiner and co. hauled home more Emmys on Sunday night (Mad Men scored its 3rd straight win for Best Drama), AMC forged ahead with another new episode of their mega-hit show in which, ironically, Don won his own award (a pretty ballsy move on Weiner's part to air this episode on Emmy night, but that's just how he rolls!). This week was all about past and present ambitions and power grabs at SCDP and the episode continued the trend of the company's creatively-minded folk cutting through the clutter of formalities and inner-office practices. And yes: Peggy got naked.
Let's start this week off right with a look back at yesterday's episode of Mad Men. As usual, we've been keeping a close watch on the show and its sponsors. While most of the folks at Sterling, Cooper, Draper, Pryce¬†were on a little New Year's holiday (for our dear protagonist, this mostly meant booze and hookers), the real ads supporting the show were working double time, hoping to ensnare the folks with advertising already on the brain through what appeared to be a more deeply integrated partnership with the program. Winners and losers after the jump.
