FX’s flagship drama Sons of Anarchy continues to grow. The series’ 90-minute Season 4 premiere last night became the most-watched episode in the series’ history in Live+Same Day with 4.94 million viewers, and FX projects that it will likely be the most-watched single episode ever for an FX original series in Live+7. In total viewers, SOA was up a whopping 20% from the show’s third-season debut. In adults 18-49, it delivered 3.22 million viewers, up 15%. For the night, including the premiere airing and two encores — one at 11:30 PM and one at 1 AM — the SOA premiere drew a combined 7.25 million viewers, 4.76 million of them in the 18-49 demo. That was up 28% in viewers and 24% in 18-49 vs. the Season 3 premiere multi-telecast delivery.
