“Better Call Saul” has finally premiered after MONTHS of anticipation and it was a doozy. The series premiere broke the record for biggest series premiere in the history of cable television.
AMC President Charlie Collier, in a statement said,
“In a competitive environment that sometimes gets as much press as the shows themselves, it is gratifying to deliver programming that breaks through and reaches passionate audiences. For AMC, it starts with the creative talent we are so fortunate to be working with including, among many others – in the order of last night’s unforgettable schedule – Robert Kirkman and Scott Gimple of The Walking Dead, Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould of Better Call Saul, and Chris Hardwick of Talking Dead. We are supremely thankful for the talented people who call this network home, and for the fans who continue to make AMC a television destination unlike any other. Walking. Calling. Talking. Humbling.”
The premiere brought in 4.4 million viewers aged 18-49, and 4 million adults aged 25-54. It will be debuting a second episode for its two night premiere tonight at 10pm ET/PT on AMC.
