‘Breaking Bad’ Gets Record Ratings

There’s just one episode left of Breaking Bad—and no one can wait for their DVRs anymore. The AMC show had record ratings for its penultimate episode Sunday night, despite fierce competition from the Emmys and Sunday night football. Breaking Bad had 6.6 million viewers, up from its previous record of 6.3 million, including 4.3 million in the coveted 18- to 49-year-old demographic. The show’s final batch of episodes, which premiered last month, has already received record ratings ahead of the much-anticipated finale. In other words, don’t make any plans for this Sunday night.
