Sons of Anarchy

The season six finale of FX’s “Sons of Anarchy” was the most-watched finale of the show’s history and the second-highest rated episode of the season, according to the network.

The episode, which aired Tuesday and is titled “A Mother’s Work,” was watched by 5.2 million total viewers, specifically 3.5 million of adults 18-49. Combined with the encore telecast, the total number was 6.4 million viewers with 4.3 million adults 18-49.

These numbers put the finale behind the season six premiere, which aired September 10 and brought in 3.9 million adult viewers between 18-49 and was the highest-rated telecast in history of FX (Live+Same Day).

“Sons of Anarchy’s” sixth season averaged 5.0 million total viewers, making it the third scripted drama in basic cable this year, behind AMC’s “The Walking Dead” “Breaking Bad.”
