‘Better Call Saul’ Ratings: AMC Drama Wraps Strong First Season With Uptick

AMC’s “Better Call Saul” wrapped a strong first season with ratings gains on Monday as it continues to stand as the year’s top new cable series.

AMC doesn’t tout the ratings performances of its shows until after three days of DVR playback are included, but in same-night numbers, “Better Call Saul” averaged a 1.19 rating/4 share in adults 18-49 and 2.53 million viewers overall — about 1 million total viewers more than “Breaking Bad” drew with its first-season finale in March 2008,

Despite facing the college basketball championship game, “Saul” was up 5% in the demo and 10% in total viewers week-to-week. In the most recent Live+3 ratings available, “Better Call Saul” more than doubled its 18-49 rating and nearly doubled its total-viewer count.

AMC launched “Saul” behind the midseason premiere of “The Walking Dead,” and that paid off with monster numbers as it became cable’s biggest premiere ever in adults 18-49 (3.5 rating).
