Rick Kissell writing for Variety:

The much-anticipated final-season premiere of “Breaking Bad” averaged 5.9 million viewers on Sunday, according to Nielsen — about double the 2.93 million it drew for its regular-timeslot premiere of a year ago.

If you add the next-day iTunes downloads and Netflix UK watchers, I think that number would be considerably higher.
