LOS ANGELES, June 25 (UPI) -- Sunday's Season 6 finale of the New York-set drama "Mad Men" was seen by 2.7 million viewers, making it the highest-rated finale in series history, AMC said.

"There is nothing else on television like 'Mad Men,' 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," Charlie Collier, AMC's president, said in a statement Monday. "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."

Set in and around a 1960s-era Madison Avenue ad agency, the Emmy Award-winning show stars Jon Hamm, Elisabeth Moss, January Jones, Christine Hendricks and John Slattery.
