This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

The second season premiere of AMC’s Breaking Bad averaged 1.7 million viewers Sunday.  Like a bonehead,  I neglected to ask what the season one premiere garnered, my bad — but I will follow up and see if I can find anything out.  If so I will update this post comparing the two premieres directly.

Other info directly via AMC:
