Executives have been getting asked these questions a lot recently.

The general answer is twofold.

Number one, we have other shows that people watch.

Number two, we have a pipeline that looks good.

Let's talk about the show that are already on amc that they may count on more now.

A lot of people have heard of "m ad men." it is starting to slow down, and instead of one final season, they have announced to the people.

" walking dead" is also about to begin another season.

Then there is another show about the computer industry and another about the civil war.

The reason we highlight all of these shows, if you look at the revenue at amc over the last couple of years, you have seen a business go from generating a few billion annually.

They can generate higher advertising rates, general higher retransmission fees, and that is what amc has been up to over the last few years.

Even though "breaking bad" is technically over, how when they bring in money?

The early numbers were not that strong over the first couple of years.

There were some people, because of the end of the show, what give it a shot now.

Amc has the opportunity to continue to show old episodes, but they have an agreement with sony, the production company.

This opens the door for generating more revenue.

It is common to have a producing partner with shows, but when it comes to the upside and revenue, you are limiting it a little bit.

I suspect you stayed up to watch the finale, but we will not give out any details because not everyone has seen it.

Thank you, jon erlichman.
