It's all about 'Breaking Bad' today on TVRage following last night's astounding episode, and the good news just keeps pouring in.
It only makes sense, really, that 'Breaking Bad's' best episode yet should be the one to nab the show's highest ratings. That was the case with the devastating, intense "Ozymandias." That episode, which aired Sunday night, managed to nab a whopping 6.4 million viewers -- by far the show's highest to date.
It beats the record set by "Blood Money," this year's premiere episode, which clocked in at 5.92 million viewers -- an record which is itself close to a million viewers higher than the third-highest rated episode (last week's "To'hajilee," with 5.11 million).
This doesn't even account for the huge amounts of people who took to the web to pirate the episode after it aired. With those viewers accounted for, 'Breaking Bad' has a much, much larger audience.
Of course, the ratings for these episodes are little more than jewels in 'Breaking Bad's' crown -- with the series coming to an end and spin-off 'Better Call Saul' already greenlit, these numbers only mean that AMC is getting rewarded for their investment in such a startlingly fantastic drama.
One can only expect the numbers to rise for the final two episodes -- particularly the finale "Felina," which is slated to air September 29. I know I'll be one of the millions tuning in -- what about you?
'Breaking Bad' will air its next episode, "Granite State," this Sunday, Sept. 22, at 9/8c on AMC.
