The final sign of AMC's decay and perhaps proof that TropesAreTools was the network's investment in original series late in [[TurnOfTheMillennium the Oughts]]. In 2007, AMC debuted ''Series/MadMen'', a critically acclaimed drama that entered the public consciousness and established the movie network as a purveyor of high-quality television shows. AMC followed this up with ''Series/BreakingBad'' in 2008, ''Series/{{Rubicon}}'' & ''Series/TheWalkingDead'' in 2010 and, in 2011, ''Series/TheKilling'' (about the investigation of a girl's murder) and ''Series/HellOnWheels'', a period drama about the construction of the Transcontinental Railroad. AMC has also crafted two {{mini series}}: the 2006 [[TheWestern Western]] ''Film/BrokenTrail'', and the 2009 remake of ''Series/{{The Prisoner|2009}}''.

** A case of a Shift That Fits as the channel transitioned from a channel of old time movies to a large variety movie channel with some original programming. However, this did bring some good shows on the table, so perhaps [[TropesAreTools Tropes Are Not Bad]].
** And then ''Talking Dead'' (which moved ''Hell On Wheels'' out of the cushy post-''The Walking Dead'' slot) became a success and a new form of Network Decay has started in the form of reality shows.
** "Monsterfest" originally featured more traditional monster movies (vampires, werewolves, the occasional AttackOfThe50FootWhatever or AlienInvasion flick), but as time went on and the network decayed, it shifted to slasher films and more recent remakes and sequels, to the point where they renamed it "Fearfest".

* WhiteMaleLead: The current original series on AMC feature a particular type of protagonist: [[AntiHero The Strong White Man Who Dares To Be Badass]]. Recent AMC ads are practically [[LampshadeHanging hanging a lampshade]] on this by drawing explicit comparisons between Don Draper (''Mad Men''), Walter White (''Breaking Bad''), Cullen Bohannon (''Hell On Wheels''), and Rick Grimes (''The Walking Dead''). ''The Killing'' and ''Into the Badlands'' are currently the sole exceptions to the rule.

These days, it's more or less accurate to say that AMC has become {{Creator/HBO}} on basic cable [[DisSimile with commercials]]; with movies during the daytime, and original series in prime time.
