AMC Sets 'Mad Men' Sunday Morning Reruns

Mad MenSo you never watched 'Mad Men'? Well, here's your chance to start! Since the show is on hiatus until 2012, AMC is re-airing the series from the beginning.

Starting Sun., July 31, the network will air encores at 6AM. Yes, that's 3 hours of slick, 1960s drama at the crack of dawn every Sunday. It might be a little too early for scotch (even for Don Draper), so we recommend getting to know the gang at Sterling Cooper with a bowl of cereal.

Or, you know, just going with it when your well-meaning daughter pours liquor on your pancakes instead of maple syrup.

Season 5 doesn't start filming until the end of the summer, so there's ample time to catch up on the entire series before the next round of episodes debuts. Just make sure that DVR has plenty of room if you're not a morning person.

Check out the schedule via AMC.

I really enjoy Mad Men,but not having a new season until 2012 might hurt them..Don't understand why that is. Remember The Sopranos? Same thing happend there,had a really long wait of over a year and a half between seasons and then it turned out to be the last season.People lose interest when there's a really long hiatus.Mad Men had a good thing going.

As I posted when the new season was announced for 2012...while "Mad Men" is my favorite show, I just don't have the attention span to wait for over a year since the last episode - I know I'll have moved on. Sorry to the actors, but the in-fighting that went on between the creative director and the producers will come back to bite them in the ass!

That wasn't the reason at all! It was actually between AMC and Matt Weiner, and they were arguing over stuff like amount of time per episodes and a loss of X amount of cast members per season. And "attention span"? Come on! It's not like you can't rewatch season 4 again at some point.

Who do you think Matt Weiner is? My comment is valid. Also, as an entertainment writer, I am well aware of attention spans lost when shows go on a long hiatus - go review the writer's strike and see what happened to some very established shows. Believe me, every network will be throwing their best at the Sunday 10 P. M. EST time slot (especially if "Mad Men" receives a lot of Emmy nods tomorrow)! When the Lifetime/Bravo networks "Project Runway" tug-of-war happened, "Project Runway" lost 35% of their viewers solely on the fact that the hiatus was too long and the season too short! Why do you think Lifetime is throwing a lot of advertising (and a nude Heidi Klum) at the show? All it takes is a viewer to watch a second episode of a new show, and their allegience will shift - whether they have every season of "Mad Men" (which I do ) on DVD or not.

Hell yeah. Love that series. Great news but 2012? AMC's at fault for cutting costs and causing behind the scenes drama. That new crap series "The KIlling" likely draining funds from it, I'm sure. Why can't networks stick with something and run with it? Why must they always screw up a good thing? This hiatus is only going to hurt the series.
