‘Better Call Saul’ Is Cable’s Number One New Series of the Season

By April 14, 2015

When the season finale of AMC’s “Breaking Bad” spinoff aired and the smoke cleared, “Better Call Saul” pulled in a total of 5.9 million viewers (3.7 mill in adults aged 18-49 and 3.6 mill ages 25-34) and earned the top spot as cable’s number one new series of the season – according to the Live+3 (live airing plus 3 days) numbers.

“As much as we enjoyed the year-plus gestation period that included friends, fans, critics and even family members telling us not to mess with the legacy of Breaking Bad (one of the most beloved series in television history), this was never anything we took even close to lightly.  Happily, the first season of Better Call Saul delivered on every level imaginable thanks to the continued brilliance of, and enjoyable partnership with, Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould.” – Charlie Collier, AMC president

As a fan of the show, these numbers please me; as AMC renewed “Better Call Saul” for a second season before even SEEING the ratings for the premiere episode, I can only hope there’s more great things to come for this series.

Thanks to Deadline for the heads up!
