The Season 6 premier of the show got an all-time high rating on Tuesday, setting a splendid record of an average of 5.87 million viewers, which is more than the last year’s premier (5.37 million) and much more than the season 4 premier in 2011, which received a viewership of 4.39 million. The Kurt Sutter Drama, which is about a runaway bike club was the highest watched show on Television on Tuesday night!

According to FX, this premier episode of Sons of Anarchy’s Season 6, which also the second last season of the series, is likely to become the no. 1 rated single cast episode in the history of FX. This record can only be confirmed once the channel gets its Live+7 data in about three weeks from now.

Sons of Anarchy also earned a rating of 3.1 from a viewership of around 3.94 million people of the same age group, much higher than a previous 2.8 and 2.5, in the previous seasons.

While, ‘Sons’ was the top-rated TV show on Tuesday night in the 18-49 demo, it was followed by NBC’s ‘America’s Got Talent’ with a rating of 2.3. Sons also ruled other adult demos like 18-34, 25-54, men 18-34, men 18-49, women 18-34 and lastly, women 18-49.
