No surprise here: The Sunday, Aug. 11, premiere of Breaking Bad brought huge ratings for cable channel AMC, delivering 5.9 million viewers, the most in series history and up 102 percent over the show’s season 5 premiere last summer.

With 3.6 million viewers among adults 18-49, Breaking Bad is second only to AMC’s The Walking Dead in delivery to this key demographic across all cable networks.

Additionally, AMC premiered its newest dramatic series Low Winter Sun, which attracted 2.5 million viewers. Following that, Talking Bad — hosted by Chris Hardwick and featuring discussion and analysis of Breaking Bad — debuted with 1.2 million viewers.
