"SOA" SEASON 6 DEBUT BECOMES MOST-WATCHED PROGRAM IN FX HISTORY

It's official: Inclusive of the Live+3 time-shifted viewing that was made available today, the Season 6 premiere episode of Sons of Anarchy now ranks as the most-watched program/telecast in FX history - even when factoring in Live+7 time-shifted viewing - in Total Viewers (8.32 million), Adults 18-49 (5.55 million), Adults 18-34 (2.70 million), and Adults 25-54 (5.74 million).

The previous highs for an FX telecast were the debut of Anger Management in Total Viewers (7.16 million, Live+7), and the Season 5 debut of Sons of Anarchy in Adults 18-49 (4.80 million, Live+7). On a Live+7 basis, the Season 5 premiere episode of SOA delivered 7.15 million Total Viewers.

On a Live+3 to Live+3 comparison, the Season 6 premiere of Sons of Anarchy increased +22% in Total Viewers and +21% in Adults 18-49 over its Season 5 debut.

Below is a detailed report.
