Return of the Mack: AMC's Hit Show 'Mad Men' Is Back

And yes, black people love this show too.


AMC's hit television show Mad Men returns for a fourth season on Sunday. Contrary to popular belief, black folks love this show just like everyone else. Fans will tune in to discover Don Draper, the aloof lead character who has more in common with regular folks than with the upwardly mobile New York crowd with which he works. A man who shows respect to black and female workers but completely disrespects the sanctity of marriage and his family. Last season's cliff hanger left us with Draper, played brilliantly by Jon Hamm, jumping ship to start his own agency, and his wife, Betty, played by January Jones, flying off for a quickie divorce after "discovering" that he is not the man he presented himself to be. Maybe this season we'll find out what he's running from and where he's running to?
