Sunday’s series finale of “Breaking Bad” drew 10.3 million viewers at 9/8c on AMC, surpassing last season’s finale by 300 percent, AMC said Monday.
It was a huge number for the acclaimed series’ final episode, and the kind of audience that shows on basic cable don’t usually achieve.
But it wasn’t too surprising either. The series finale of “Breaking Bad” got the biggest publicity build-up of any TV show in recent memory.
AMC also noted that 4.4 million viewers stuck around for its “Breaking Bad” after-show, “Talking Bad,” starting at 10:15/9:15 eastern time.
