Breaking Bad broke all sorts of records in viewership with 10.3 miilion people and 6.7 adults from 18-49 becoming the biggest show in AMC's history. The final episode was up 300% over the last season's final episode.
The finale also set a record on Twitter with 1.24 MILLION tweets which came from an incredible 600,000 unique accounts, seemingly because we were watching more than we were tweeting. The show peaked at around 22,000 tweets per minute which is an amazing number for an amazing show.
This might be the crazier part, nearly HALF of those people stuck around to watch Talking Bad because every one of us wanted to start talking about the show from the moment it started to the moment it ended and thru to today.
Man I will miss that show.
