An FX drama series ended its season Tuesday with an episode that delivered record numbers. The Los Angeles Times’ Show Tracker reports that the sixth-season finale of “Sons of Anarchy” drew its biggest audience yet for one of the series’ season finales.
The drama’s sixth-season finale drew 5.2 million viewers, which grew to 6.4 million with an encore telecast.
“‘SOA’ carved some deep ratings tracks this year,” the story notes. “Tuesday’s episode, titled ‘A Mother’s Work,’ was the second highest-rated ever for the series among viewers ages 18 to 49, exceeded only by the premiere earlier this season. That season premiere was the highest-rated telecast in the history of FX.”
The drama has ranked as the third-most watched cable TV drama with viewers in the 18-49 demo, trailing “The Walking Dead” and “Breaking Bad,” the report adds.
