For Gene Parker, the WFGR Production (think commercials) Director. Gene has gotten hooked on Mad Men. 60's advertising and sex drama appeals to Gene. Anyhoo, Gene has been catching up on Mad Men on Netflix. Now Gene doesn't have to wait long for the 5th season of the AMC drama!

It's been announced the 6th season will now start on April 7th with a 2 hour episode! This story from Entertainment Tonight Online "'Mad Men' Premiere Date, Revealed! Tells from Creator Matt Weiner about the new season

"Of The Supersize Season Premiere:
This year it's really constructed like a film. It is its own story and hopefully it foreshadows the rest of the season. You should know what happened at the end of last season before you see the episode. The whole season is in reference to last season."

Also sad news for comedies. two shows have gotten the axe before February sweeps. Fox's "Ben and Kate" and ABC's "Don't trust the B..." Poor James VanderBeek. He's the new Ted McGinnley. Showkiller.
