“Sons of Anarchy” is going out with a bang — and we’re not just talking about the growing body count.
The jumbo-sized Season 7 premiere of the FX biker drama yielded a series high in ratings on Tuesday night, amassing 6.2 million total viewers.
The premiere, which started at 10 p.m. and ran for nearly two hours, had 4.1 million viewers in the 18-49 demographic — also a high for the Kurt Sutter-created series.
Last year’s premiere drew 5.87 million total viewers, with 3.94 million in the demo.
While FX recently enacted a policy of not releasing ratings until Live Plus 3-Day data is available, Sutter appears to have an inkling that the premiere performed well, if his Twitter account is any indication.
“Won’t have official viewing data until Monday. But I have a good feeling that a few of you may have tuned in to watch the premiere,” Sutter tweeted on Wednesday.
