Though AMC has had some popular scripted series that have run for years, many others have been cancelled after just one season. How are the current crop of shows doing? Which will be cancelled or renewed? We'll have to wait and see.
Last update: Ratings for the most recent episode of Mad Men added.
There's lots of data that AMC execs look at when deciding whether to renew or cancel a TV series but ratings are the major ingredient. Here's an updated listing of all of their recent/current primetime scripted shows.
Gilliam was pulled over for driving 107 mph in a 55-mph zone, according to police. He was arrested after police discovered a marijuana cigarette in his car. At Fayette County Jail, Gilliam was charged with DUI, drug possession and speeding.
Peachtree City is about 30 miles southwest of downtown Atlanta. Filming for season six of “The Walking Dead” was under way in nearby Senoia, Georgia.
Gilliam’s trouble with the law might not be too shocking. According to Brett Martin’s book “Difficult Men: Behind the Scenes of a Creative Revolution: From The Sopranos to Mad Men to Breaking Bad,” Gilliam has generated a reputation for this sort of behavior. During his time on “The Wire,” Gilliam was reportedly part of a “core group »

Joe Abruzzese has been selling TV advertising for decades, but he’s not about to let old habits get in the way of potential new money.
This is how advertising on TV was once bought for nearly every marketer from General Motors to General Mills: You figured out how many viewer “eyeballs” you needed to get your ad in front of, you examined ratings projections, and you agreed to have the ads run a certain number of times on a specific network that would guarantee the number of impressions you sought. There was rarely a need to make significant changes later. “You bought Animal Planet, and you got it,” explains Abruzzese, the president of advertising sales for Discovery Communications.
In 2015, however, advertisers are demanding huge changes to the status quo — and Abruzzese knows he needs to pay attention. Marketers want the freedom to change the way they deploy their messages, »

It appears that one running bit on The Late Late Show with James Corden will have various iconic actors coming into reenact scenes from all of their movies, performing them in under ten minutes. It took Tom Hanks 8 Minutes to get through his entire catalogue of hits and misses. Now, action legend Arnold Schwarzenegger has joined in on the fun. Though, it only takes him 6 minutes to breeze through his filmography.
No stone is left unturned when it comes to revisiting Arnold Schwarzenegger's varied catalogue of action epics and comedies. He, of course, dons his leather T-800 jacket from Terminator Genisys, touching on all the sequels in that franchise. But he also hits on scenes from Twins, Conan the Barbarian, Total Recall and even the bomb Batman & Robin. This frenzied and hilarious video is not to be missed by any fan!

At present Valhalla is in the midst of producing the drama series “Hunters” for Syfy and a drama pilot in the works for USA Network, “Falling Water.” Valhalla is also developing a Swedish TV adaptation, “Brothers in Crime,” and working with graphic novel scribe Warren Ellis on his first TV project.

While a lot of modern filmmakers miss the importance of social commentary, it’s what made George A. Romero’s original trilogy so spectacular. For me, this is one of the major problems with AMC’s “The Walking Dead” series, adapted from Robert Kirkman’s character-driven comic series. I couldn’t tell you the point of “Walking Dead,” nor could […] »

If you, like us, are still mourning the cancellation of Hideo Kojima and Guillermo Del Toro’s Silent Hills, a Change.org petition calling for the creative pair to return to the ill-fated project may offer some solace.
At the time of writing, the passionate battle cry has accumulated over 80,000 signatures, and though it’s unlikely that the online rally will impact Konami’s seemingly steadfast stance on the canned horror game, the heartfelt poll is admirable nonetheless.
Spearheaded by user Yauheni, the open letter addresses Kojima and del Toro directly with one earnest request: to return to Silent Hills and deliver on what was once promised.
Dear Hideo and Guillermo,
Hearing the cancellation of one of the most anticipated horror games is about the most heartbreaking thing horror fans had to swallow this year. Since the first sight of the P.T Demo it was instant love, and it »

AMC Networks posted a 27.5% jump in revenue for the first quarter of 2015, as the cable programmer handily beat analysts estimates on both the top and bottom lines.

Chad L. Coleman regrets going off the rails — figuratively speaking — on a New York City subway last week. As seen in a now-viral video posted by TMZ, the Walking Dead actor went ballistic and caused a scene on a Brooklyn-bound 4 train last Friday, May 1, screaming at passengers as he paced up and down the car. "I want to know where my humanitarians are!" he yelled repeatedly. "Yes, I'm Chad L. Coleman! I'm on The Wire, The Walking Dead! If you care, f---ing care! [...] »
Ugh, moving. Am I right?
First there’s the making sure all of your stuff gets boxed up and relocated to the proper destination. Then there’s the unpacking and realizing that you’ve accidentally opened a crate of ennui, a realization that makes it tough to continue doing the work you’ve done for years, so pointless does the endeavor seem when the great, wide world is out there for the taking and/or a sad waitress might need saving.
Finally, there’s the removing the bubble wrap from the pesky awareness that it’s a man’s, man’s, »
