NBC has pulled three Emmy promos that spoofed the AMC drama "Mad Men" and featured Emmy host Jimmy Fallon with "Mad Men" star Christina Hendricks (she plays Joan Holloway in the series). The promos immediately drew complaints from rival networks with shows competing with "Mad Men" for Emmy awards, reports the Hollywood Reporter’s The Live Feed blog.
The first of the three promos aired Wednesday night, August 10, 2010. NBC doesn’t have plans to spoof rival shows, and the voting window for the Emmy awards remains open, the article adds. NBC said the promo was released prematurely and that it will hold the additional Fallon "Mad Men" spoofs until after the voting window closes on Aug. 17.
