NEW YORK (September 30, 2013)—An estimated 10.3 million people watched Sunday's "Breaking Bad" finale seized a record-breaking number of viewers for the series, AMC said Monday.
That’s three times the audience for the midseason finale that aired a year ago.
The network says an expanded one-hour version of its "Talking Bad" discussion after-show delivered 4.4 million viewers.
The drama's popularity soared during its five-season run, while it reaped acclaim and awards.
At last week's Emmy Awards it collected a best-drama-series trophy and a supporting-actress statuette for Anna Gunn, who played the wife of teacher-turned-drug-lord Walter White opposite series star Bryan Cranston.
The series' previous record was set last Sunday, when 6.6 million viewers tuned at the same time as the Emmys.
