‘Saul’ Breaks Ratings Record
It was better than Bad. The debut of Better Call Saul, AMC’s Breaking Bad spinoff, smashed a cable record for the key demographic of viewers under 50. The 4.4 million total of younger viewers is nearly a million more than the previous record-holder, HBO’s Deadwood. Overall, 6.9 million people watched the prequel centered on Walter White’s morally challenged lawyer. But Saul’s real day in court starts next week after the show moves to Mondays, where it will no longer follow ratings monster The Walking Dead.
