Sons of Anarchy is now doing Breaking Bad–finale numbers: The biker drama’s seventh and final season premiere brought in 9.25 million total viewers and 6.1 million in the 18–49 demographic, enough to make it the most-watched episode in FX history. Encore airings pushed those already staggering tallies to 10.62 viewers overall and just under 7 million 18–49, which puts SOA in the same vicinity as the season-four premiere of Game of Thrones. As with most things, all credit for this should go to White Walkers Marilyn Manson.
