Last night’s premiere of the final eight Breaking Bad episodes ever shattered the AMC series’ previous ratings record. “Blood Money” netted a whopping 5.9 million viewers, eclipsing the drama series’ previous record of 3 million viewers for last year’s penultimate episode. Clearly fans made it a point of catching up on the show in the months since last year’s finale, as having the twists and turns of the final episodes of this brilliant drama spoiled would be rather unfortunate. It helps that the show has been available on Netflix’s Instant Watch for a few months, allowing subscribers to adequately prepare for the end.
