The end of “For Immediate Release,” episode six of the current season of “Mad Men,” found a none-too-pleased Peggy Olson (Elisabeth Moss) tasked with writing up a press release announcing the surprise merger between Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce and Cutler Gleason and Chaough. AMC’s now put out another “press release” from Peggy in conjunction with last night’s episode, one displaying the new Sterling Cooper & Partners logo with quotes from the senior partners.
