The show scored 1.45 million viewers in the coveted 18-49 demographic, over a quarter more than it had last year.

Breaking Bad also beat out fellow AMC drama Mad Men's fourth season numbers in a few demos, including 19% more adults 18-49, 56% more 18-34, and 142% more men 18-34.

Breaking Bad airs Sunday at 10 p.m. ET on AMC.
