Breaking Bad Series Finale Delivers Record Ratings

by at .  Updated at . Comments

It should satisfy the enormous ego of Walter White to know that he went out in a blaze of record-setting glory.

The series finale of Breaking Bad - which ended with Walt freeing Jesse, killing a lot of Neo-Nazis and passing away from a gunshot wound inside a meth lab - shattered series ratings on AMC, garnering 10.3 million overall viewers.

That's an astounding 300% increase over last year's finale, with 6.7 million of those viewers residing in the advertiser-friendly demographic of 18-49-year olds.

Said AMC President Charlie Collier in a statement:

“Breaking Bad is simply unique. It all starts with Vince Gilligan who really only ever asked for one thing – the opportunity to end the show on his own terms. That is exactly what Vince did last night and, as always, brilliantly so. Congratulations to Vince and to every single person involved in this remarkable journey.

"We’re proud that AMC will forever be known as the birthplace and home of this iconic show and, at the same time, we tip our Heisenberg hat to the fans who made this a truly shared experience.”
