Hell on Wheels Debuts Huge on AMC

by at . Comments

Hell on Wheels had anything but a Hellish start on AMC last night: the western-based drama garnered 4.4 million viewers for its pilot, the network's second-highest rated premiere of all-time (behind The Walking Dead).

“I congratulate the entire cast and crew of Hell on Wheels for pulling off a project of this scope,” said AMC prez Charlie Collier in a statement. “Bringing the grandeur of the old west and the building of the railroad to life is no small feat and the Gaytons, with their team, have delivered a beautiful world of which we are all so proud. We look forward to sharing the lives of these characters in the weeks and months to come.”
