The show scored big-time...
There's only one season left of Sons of Anarchy and while the cast keeps dwindling due to the regular body count, the ratings just keep going in the opposite direction. F/X has announced that the show's season six finale was the most-watched season-ender in the show's history and the second-highest rated episode of the season with 5.2 million viewers, 3.5 million of which were in the covetes 18 - 49 demographic. Folding in the ratings from the encore airing the show drew 6.4 million total viewers and 4.3 million in the demo for the night.
The episode had the third-highest viewership of any episode in the series' history, behind only the season five premiere (5.37 million) and the season six premiere (5.87 million). That season premiere was the highest-rated telecast in F/X history. The show's 5.0 million 18 - 49 demographic viewer average makes it the third-highest rated scripted drama on basic cable for the year, behind only The Walking Dead and Breaking Bad.
