Mad Men's season six finale was the series' highest-rated finale, according to AMC. The hit period drama's final outing attracted 2.7 million viewers, just beating out the season five finale, which garnered 2.6 million viewers. Sunday's finale also beat out last year's finale in the household ratings, delivering a 2.1 rating as opposed to a 2.0 rating.

"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," AMC president Charlie Collier said in a statement. "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."

While the season six finale was Mad Men's most-watched ever, the season's overall ratings were down from season five.

Overall, season six averaged 2.5 million viewers, a 1.9 rating and 1.3 million viewers in the adults 25-54 demo; Season five averaged 2.6 million viewers.

Season six went out in dramatic fashion as Don Draper (Jon Hamm) was asked to leave the firm and Megan (Jessica Paré) seemingly ended their marriage.
