Don Draper and co., wrapped up their six season with 2.7 million viewers on Sunday night, the AMC drama's highest rated finale in six years, The New York Times reported.

"There is nothing else on television like ‘Mad Men,'" AMC president Charlie Collier said of the show's success this year.

And for the series in its sixth season to deliver the highest-rated finale ever–and an episode that critics and fans have already declared an instant classic is a testament to everyone who brings this world to life,"

Matthew Weiner and his cast and crew have created something that continues to occupy a unique and very special place, on television and across the broader cultural landscape, and we are so proud to be a part of it.

According to the Los Angeles Times, "Mad Men's" appeal with viewers from higher-income households has made it television's "most upscale" cable drama.
