I checked out this series on-demand out of curiosity. Really, I wanted to see if it was bad, or just misunderstood. I think it was moreso the latter, but it could not overcome the name. And NBC learned that the hard way. Playboy has a negative stigma attached that outweighs whatever men they hoped would tune in for just that reason. They also learned that there is only one Mad Men, and it has the advantage of being free of the red tape and constraints of network TV.
