at .

Falling Skies debuted to huge numbers on TNT last night, garnering 5.9 million viewers and setting the mark as the most-watched cable premiere of the year.

Naturally, Michael Wright - the executive vice president and head of programming for TNT, TBS and Turner Classic Movies - is thrilled with the results:

“The enormous success of Falling Skies demonstrates what can happen when you partner with the best people in the business and give them what they need to do their very best work... [it is] an exciting, fascinating and often moving story made possible through the magic of DreamWorks Television, an incredibly talented cast led by Noah Wyle and the vision of one of the greatest storytellers of our time, Steven Spielberg.”
