The Mayhem Is The Message

Her kid brother may be the more recognizable name to some, but long before “Mad Men” turned Matt Weiner into a Hollywood MVP, Allison Hope Weiner was already at the top of her game. Of course, like any family, they do share some common traits. Both caught their first big breaks with a TV sitcom; a writing gig on The Naked Truth for him, a role as a paid extra on Seinfeld for her (not that there’s anything wrong with that).

  1. There's an extra "http" in the "10 Questions for Jon Hamm" link.

  2. I know. Unfortunately, I haven't figured out how to edit these. It's a feed.

  5. That's really awesome that Slattery is directing the next episode. I hope he can follow the likes of Bryan Cranston, Clark Johnson, and Steve Buscemi as actors in series directing episodes. (or, in Johnson's case on The Wire, director, then actor, then director again)

  6. Happy Anniversary to Rich Sommer! http://richsommer.com/post/947766917/five-years-a

  7. Hey, the Mad Men archives disappeared! Where'd they go?

  8. Excuse me, I mean the Mad Men NEWS archives.

  9. We had a bug. We fixed it.

    Dude, that SCDP floor plan is genius. Can we link it permanently in the Bible?

  10. Just subscribing to feedback. Thanks.

  11. Thanks for the news links.
    I have to disagree with the article suggesting that Mad Men evokes sentimental emotion for “outdated aspects of business life”. To suggest that business no longer uses the likes of support staff is clearly written by someone who does not work in business (call centres, account departments).
    Anyway, I suspect that I’m perhaps taking the article too seriously.
    Thanks again for the links!

  12. My favorite site! You are a great writer writing about a great show…MM. When I go to the site by typing in the web address it is old content (5/24). The only way that I can read current content is to do search for BOK ‘Commissions and Fees’ recap. Any thoughts?

  13. I get an error everytime I try to submit a news item so I sent it to @lippsisters on twitter. One is a GMA spoof on the opening credits to MadMen and the other is the new Aimee Mann video in which Jon Hamm plays a video director

  14. I’m still not able to submit news items. I get an error that makes no sense. But this link will provide two videos: Elmo and Jon Hamm; muppet named Mr. Draper with the MadMen theme song

  15. “For all you marketing folks in the D.C.-area that also happen to be Mad Men fans, I have some pretty amazing news: Elisabeth Moss (the actress who plays Peggy Olson in Mad Men) has been announced as the featured keynote speaker at Vocus’ Demand Success 2013 marketing conference at the National Harbor, MD.”

  16. Mad Men is scheduled for the PayleyFest at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood on Friday, March 21: Mad Men (7:00 pm) — does this mean that Season 7 will return late March or early April?????

    • That’s been the anticipated date all along — we posted that months ago. We just don’t have an exact date yet.
