60 Favorite Television Characters: 44

Don Draper was the main character on Mad Men. There's no denying that. There are probably people out there who will try to deny this, but they're just wrong and they're stupid and they're idiots. The show was about Don. But Don was not the character who changed the most over the course of the seven-year run of Mad Men. That honor goes to Peggy Olson, who started out working for Don in 1960 as his typist, his secretary, whatever you want to call the position and then worked her way up to copywriter to junior partner to the Manhattan advertising world's premiere player. And beyond working her way to improving degrees of job titles, she also drastically changed in regards to her level of confidence. Just look at the picture above. Season one Peggy was so much more meek.
