"Breaking Bad" viewer ratings skyrocketed for the epic series finale which aired on Sept. 29. According to MSN, 10.3 million viewers tuned in to watch the finale which was given high marks by nearly every fan. If you don't watch the show, you probably aren't surprised by these numbers -- nearly every one was talking about this epic conclusion... and whether or not some guy named "Walt" would die.
"The drama's popularity has soared during its five-season run, while it reaped acclaim and awards. At last week's Emmy Awards it collected a best-drama-series trophy and a supporting-actress statuette for Anna Gunn, who played the wife of teacher-turned-drug-lord Walter White opposite series star Bryan Cranston," MSN reports.
The "Breaking Bad" viewer ratings tripled from its mid-season finale just one year ago. While it broke records on Emmy night (coincidentally) with 6.6 million people chose to watch the episode over the awards show, no one could have predicted the extraordinary numbers the show put up on Sunday.
Don't forget that thousands if not millions of people recorded the episode to watch at a later time. While so many are sad to see the show go, they appreciated the series and the genius behind it. There aren't too many shows like "Breaking Bad" and for so many people to be into it, you know that it was good. It might not have been everyone's cup of tea -- but it certainly was intriguing in many ways.
"Breaking Bad" viewer ratings didn't break any records other than their own but 10.3 million is impressive nonetheless.
