The Breaking Bad subreddit, which is (so far) significantly larger, also saw a spike during Saul's premiere, with more than 100,000 unique visitors experiencing a case of Bad nostalgia heading there. Leading up to Saul, it had been attracting a mean of roughly 10,000 unique visitors a day.
Better Call Saul opened to record ratings for a cable series premiere and included plenty of fodder for fans to dissect. For more from the two-night premiere, read THR's interviews with Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould, Bob Odenkirk, Raymond Cruz (Tuco) and director Michelle MaClaren.
