The third-to-the-last episode of “Breaking Bad” broke ratings record, so AMC is adding 10 minutes each for the final two episodes of the highly-anticipated show.
The ‘Ozymandias’ episode got a whopping 6.4 million viewers. Aside from the Nielsen log, Breaking Bad was also the No. 1 program of the night (according to SocialGuide) with 604,765 total tweets and series star Aaron Paul surpassing 1 million Twitter followers.
With only two episodes left for the show to see what happens to chemistry-teacher-turned-meth-dealer Walter White and his former teacher/business partner and now meth-lab-slave, AMC is taking advantage of the high anticipation by adding more minutes to the two final episodes.
One of the show’s writers/executive producers, Peter Gould , tweeted the extension via Twitter. He wrote: “I checked & it’s official. Last 2 #BreakingBad eps are 75 minutes each w/commercials. Set your DVRS accordingly. Better still, watch live!” So expect a full 60-minute of heart-stopping action/drama with about 15 minutes of commercial.
“Breaking Bad” has been acclaimed by critics as one of the best TV shows ever. The series finale goes down on September 29.
