“Better Call Saul” Set Record Cable Debut

(via Deadline)

The series premiere of Better Call Saul last night on AMC scored the highest ratings in key demos (18-49) on cable ever. 6.9 million total viewers and 4.4 million in key demos is what overnight ratings report, despite the shift away from dependence on Nielsen ratings.

We’d bet that the ratings over a month are probably going to be even more astounding if all the positive response from critics and fans alike keeps building.
