AMC has announced that the premiere of Breaking Bad spinoff Better Call Saul has broke the record for the premiere of a cable series with an amazing 4.4 million viewers IGN reports. The new show centers around the character of Saul Goodman Walter White’s lawyer seven years before the events of Breaking Bad in which he is a small time lawyer looking to find a big payday and make it out of the legal little leagues.
Along the way we’ll witness his evolution from Jimmy McGill (his real name) into Saul Goodman. Better Call Saul is one of two spinoff’s AMC has planned for it’s lineup. The cable network is also working on a spinoff of it’s other hit series The Walking Dead as well which returned with new episodes last night alongside Better Call Saul. With Better Call Saul a confirmed ratings hit it seems that AMC has the Midas touch. Hopefully it continues.
