There Is No Stopping This Juggernaut: Against the Emmys, the NFL and the 'Dexter' Finale, 'Breaking Bad' Sets Another Ratings Record (and 'Dexter' Did Well Itself) E! Online, THR
Things are breaking sooooo good for AMC's Emmy-hit "Breaking Bad."
On Sunday night, Sept 22, 2013, against stiff competition from the NFL, from the Emmys, and from the finale of Showtime's "Dexter," "Breaking Bad's" penultimate episode hit another ratings high.
With "6.6 million viewers ... 'Breaking Bad' beat its own AMC record set a week earlier (6.4 million viewers)," reports E! Online.
Adds The Hollywood Reporter: "Among adults 18-49, the series was also at a high, with 4.3 million viewers. It also scored with adults 25-54, averaging 3.7 million viewers. The series seems poised to outdo itself again with next week's series finale. After returning to huge year-to-year gains with the start of its final eight episodes, 'Breaking Bad' has raised the bar twice more in the last month."
And E! notes, about the "Dexter" finale: "Despite most critics and viewers universally panning Dexter Morgan's (Michael C. Hall) swan song, the series-ender brought in 3.3 million viewers for the night, making it the highest-rated 'Dexter' episode ever and the most watched original episode in Showtime history."
