There was no stopping fans from watching the show live Sunday (or at least same-night, thanks to DVRs), as the conclusion to Walter White's odyssey was watched by an average audience of 10.3 million, according to Nielsen, up 3.7 million (or 56%) from its penultimate episode of the previous week (6.6 million).

The most popular cable comedy ever didn't go away completely after its finale: A film adaptation came out in 2008, with a sequel following in 2010.
(AMC) 2013 - 10.3 million
It's the No. 1 ad-supported cable finale of all time, drawing more than seven times the show's premiere audience of 2008 (1.4 million)

This number is even more impressive considering that Nielsen only tracks in-home viewing, and thus didn't count fans watching at any of the numerous bars holding parties for the show.

The series-ender, in which the four main characters end up in a jail cell, left many critics cold and remains one of the more controversial finales.
