Riding a wave of high demand for an early fix of "Mad Men" -- the premiere was moved to a larger venue at the last minute -- AMC pulled off the West Coast launch of the series' fourth season Tuesday night at the Mann Chinese 6 in Hollywood.
"Calls from 'Mad Men' fans in some high places started to pour in," a network source told Show Tracker. "The kind of fans you can't refuse."
Christina Hendricks, Jon Hamm, Elisabeth Moss, Rich Sommer, Vincent Kartheiser, Aaron Staton and show creator Matthew Weiner were among those representing cast and crew. Moss and January Jones are among those expected Sunday at the New York premiere, where, according to Show Tracker, bigger crowds are expected.
One thing to note before getting too close to Hendricks: Weiner admitted to ABC News' Diane Sawyer on Tuesday that her character, Joan, is "terrifying" to him.
