Both Jon and January say the show's success has inspired the cast to work even harder. "It's been a passion project for everyone involved," January says. "[The praise is] flattering, and we just want to keep making it better and better and better for the new audience who catch on to appreciate."
Mad Men was AMC's first foray into original programming, and Jon says the fans have helped spread the word about the first two seasons. "When people start telling people, it grows sort of exponentially," he says. "With all of the awards and all of the attention in the press, this is the result. It's been great."
