The much-anticipated Breaking Bad finale went out with a bang, nabbing the series' highest ratings ever, with 10.3 million viewers tuning in to see Walter White's fate.
The episode, "Felina," received 6.7 million viewers in the advertiser friendly 18-to-49 age group.
The 75-minute episode of Breaking Bad was competing with Sunday Night Football on NBC, Showtime's Homeland, and a new episode of Boardwalk Empire, among other programs.
Some say the numbers might be even higher since Nielsen undercounts viewership.
Fresh off Emmy wins last week, the cast has a lot to smile about, including generating a torrent of Twitter mentions — 1.24 million tweets during the Eastern and Pacific Time Zone telecasts, according to TV Line.
