This week, Vulture hails AMC’s post-Mad Men game plan. Plus, Variety talks up AMC’s ratings gains in 2015. Read on for more:
• Vulture speaks with AMC President Charlie Collier and hails the network’s winning strategy: “new hits, combined with the continued success of the original [The] Walking Dead, turned AMC into a top-five cable network.” When asked about the network’s success, Collier says, “That is a nice position to be in… and certainly a position that we’ve worked hard to create. We are now working with creators that we’ve admired for a long time, and when they tell us, ‘I built this with AMC in mind,’ or ‘I wanted to come and make my home at AMC,’ those are things I don’t think any of us take lightly.”
• Variety pronounces AMC a “cable standout,” having gained viewers in the demographic of adults aged 18-49, according to Nielsen’s “live plus-3” estimates.
• AdWeek reports on how AMC “just wrapped its most successful year ever” and the addition of Tuesday night programming with the premiere of The Night Manager on April 19.
