Added DiffLines:

* CashCowFranchise: ''Series/TheWalkingDead'' is by far the most financially successful AMC programming, and has spawned [[Series/FearTheWalkingDead two ongoing]] [[Series/TheWalkingDeadWorldBeyond spin-offs]], an upcoming one, and one aftershow. Even after AMC announced that the original series will conclude in 2022 ([[LongRunner after 12 years]]), it's not going anywhere for a while.

Added DiffLines:

* AdoredByTheNetwork: AMC's favorite movie must be ''{{Film/Unforgiven}}''. ''Film/TheGreenMile'' comes in at a close second.
** AMC was notorious for this trope during the early-2000s. It was quite common at that time for the channel to overplay a certain movie for months. This was usually the case for popular movies such as ''Film/WillyWonkaAndTheChocolateFactory'' or ''Film/MadMax1'', but even relatively obscure ones got this treatment also. (Remember ''The Hindenburg'' with Creator/GeorgeCScott?)


Added DiffLines:

* BreakthroughHit: As a provider of original television series, ''Series/MadMen''.


Added DiffLines:

* DoingItForTheArt: The network's commitment to high-quality dramas, despite their low ratings.

Added DiffLines:

* BritishBrevity: One of the few American companies who does this practice. Many of their dramas have fewer than 13 episodes per season; in the case of their former flagship shows ''Series/MadMen'' and ''Series/BreakingBad'', the final season of each show was split into two subseasons.
