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!

Sons of Anarchy Season 5 Episode 1 Quotes

Something happens at around 92 miles an hour - thunder-headers drown out all sound, engine vibrations travels at a heart's rate, field of vision funnels into the immediate and suddenly you're not on the road, you're in it. A part of it. Traffic, scenery, cops - just cardboard cutouts blowing over as you past. Sometimes I forget the rush of that. That's why I love these long runs. All your problems, all the noise, gone. Nothing else to worry about except what's right in front of you. Maybe that's the lesson for me today, to hold on to these simple moments. Appreciate them a little more - there's not many of them left. I don't ever want that for you. Finding things that make you happy shouldn't be so hard. I know you'll face pain, suffering, hard choices, but you can't let the weight of it choke the joy out of your life. No matter what, you have to find the things that love you. Run to them. There's an old saying, 'That what doesn't kill you, makes you stronger' I don't believe that. I think the things that try to kill you make you angry and sad. Strength comes from the good things - your family, your friends, the satisfaction of hard work. Those are the things that'll keep you whole. Those are the things to hold on to when you're broken.

Jax

Tig: Oh come on there's nothing wrong with the occasional skank.
Jax: Time to pull out, I wanna go home.
