Out of the Blue

On one hand we have a basic cable TV channel with one of the most popular shows of the day, and on the other is a premium channel which, in its own right, has one of the top shows on TV as well. The former is commercial-supported, and has to fulfill the expectations of their advertisers by hitting projected ratings numbers, while the latter is subscriber supported, and can ostensibly ignore ratings as long as their customers are satisfied. So why is it that AMC is airing the new episode of Mad Men tonight, while HBO is ducking the Memorial Day holiday this week, so the next new Game of Thrones is next Sunday? It seems in this time of DVRs and repeat viewing that neither show should have to skip a week for this reason, but it seems Mad Men has a better excuse for doing so than GoT.

Most techie peeps have DVRs and a lot of their friends/family, but I would guess most people still don't.
You have to figure anyone with satellite tv has one, and most cable systems offer them now. I haven't seen any numbers, but it wouldn't surprise me if it has reached a majority status...
Truth is brutal. Prepare for pain.
