Sons of Anarchy Premiere Sets Series High

by at . Comments

It's official: Tig's daughter isn't the only thing on fire.

The Sons of Anarchy Season 5 premiere drew 5.4 million viewers last night, including 3.5 million in the coveted demographic of 18-49-year olds.

Such figures represent 10 percent gains over the FX thriller's previous series high water marks, reached for last season's opener.

Tig at the Table

Overall, Sons of Anarchy was cable's top performer on the evening in total viewers and in a number of other key areas. Heck, it even topped the broadcast networks at 10 p.m.

SOA airs a new installment next week - and be sure to visit TV Fanatic tomorrow for our weekly Round Table discussion!

NOTHING I EVER EXPECTED! I LOVE TIGGS AND FEEL SO SORRY FOR HIM AND HE HAS DEFINATELY SNAPPED NOW. I CANT WAIT TO SEE WHERE THIS TAKES HIM NEXT........ADDING JIMMY SMITTS WAS A SMART MOVE BY THE GENIUS KURT SUTTER. I LOVED JIMMY IN N.Y.P.D. BLUE, VERY DEVENIERE AND SEXY. CANT WAIT TO SEE HOW THIS ALL TAKES PLACE BETWEEN GEMMA AND HIM. JAX HAS A LOT OF HIS PLATE RIGHT NOW AND I FEEL WHEN THE SHOW COMPLETELY ENDS , IS WHEN IT WILL BE WHEN CLAYS DAYS WILL BE NUMBERED. WAS SO EXCITED I GOT INTO THE LIVE BROADCAST LAST NIGHT! IT TOOK ME A FEW MINUETES TO GET IN, AS I LOGGED IN LATER THEN EARLIER. I FINALLY DID AND SAW OVER 6,556 VIEWS WATCHING! DIDNT SURPRISE ME IN THE LEAST. CONGRATS TO THE GREASTED SHOW ON FX, AND ANGER MANGEMENT ALSO. I KNOW CHARLIE WATCHES SONS, AND KURT AND CHARLIE ARE FRIENDS, GOOD MIX THIER, WOULD LOVE TO SEE CHARLIE ON SONS SOME SEASON, WHAT A THINK KURT?.........XO TAMMY MICHAEL
