'Justified' scores biggest FX debut since 'Shield'
The premiere of FX's "Justified" on Tuesday night was the second most-watched series debut in the network's history.
"Justified" was seen by 4.2 million viewers, topping all of cable TV and ranking as FX's biggest series premiere since "The Shield" first aired in 2002.
As is the tendency with Western-styled shows, the appeal was particular strong among older viewers. Only 2.0 million of "Justified" viewers were adults 18-49.
