Memo Pad: Emap's big Break Up... Artful Cause... Mad About Mad Men...

So is the Times' extensive coverage simply coincidence? "Some of our critics and editors think it's a pretty good show, and it's getting good numbers," explained Times cultural editor Sam Sifton. "We're interested in figuring out why people like it, and what that — and it — says about our culture. Is this indicative of an obsession among senior editors? I doubt it." In contrast, Sifton said, the Times has been captivated more so by another, now defunct, cable show. "We've written about 'The Sopranos' almost 200 times this year." — Stephanie D. Smith
