One of the best episodes in Breaking Bad history — if not TV history — was also the show’s most-watched episode ever.

Sunday’s nights stunning “Ozymandias” episode of the AMC series delivered 6.4 million viewers. That number includes 4.1 million adults 18-49. The hour also inspired 604,765 tweets (see our Q&A with the writer of the episode).

The performance tops the show’s recent record-setting season premiere. It also suggests Breaking Bad will likely set another record for its series finale in a couple weeks. So far the season is averaging 5.2 million viewers, up 102 percent from last summer.

With only two episodes remaining, Breaking Bad is teaching a master class on how to end a TV show. And after performing modestly in the ratings for years, the drama is now firmly a hit by any basic cable standard in its final lap. Will the Breaking Bad stick the landing?
