Mad Men sixth season premieres April 7 with 2-hour episode

Matthew Weiner, show creator, is notoriously tight-lipped about Mad Men and is scarily good at controlling spoiler leakage, so that's pretty much all we know about the season premiere - but knowing a return date is better than not knowing anything at all! And Weiner must be a mindreader, because I had just been wondering about this last night, whether or not we would have to wait as long as we did for the fifth season to premiere (there was almost a year and a half gap between the fourth season finale in October 2010 and the fifth season premiere in March 2012) - April will be 10 months since the fifth season finale...woo hoo to a less than one year wait, but no wonder I'm going through Mad Men withdrawal. I mean, surisly! (Though I'll admit, it's probably the show's not conforming to the 22 episode, every fall through spring standard US network scheduling that allows it to maintain its creative storytelling superiority...something I'll have to keep reminding myself for the next few months).

Of course, with Baby Girl due to arrive April 3, she is now under strict orders to arrive before, or after, but not ON April 7! A happy mama is a Mad Men-premiere watching mama! :)
