'Breaking Bad' draws highest audience in show's history
August 14 , 2013
As many as 5.9 million viewers watched the Season 6 premiere of 'Breaking Bad', making this episode the most watched in the history of the show.
The episode also generated more tweets than expected- 12,000 tweets a minute at its peak and 760,000 in total.
The audience numbered double as much when compared to the show's premiere last year. Shows that premiered immediately after 'Breaking Bad' didn't have half as many viewers.
