Better Call Saul rode The Walking Dead coattails for its launch but is now standing on its own, turning AMC into a formidable player on Mondays.

The third episode of the Breaking Bad prequel delivered 5.8 million viewers, 3.7 million adults 18-49 and 3.6 million adults 25-54 in Live+3 viewing. That was up a fraction (+1% in viewers and 18-49, +4% in 25-54) from the dramedy’s Monday debut with its second episode, which followed the series premiere that aired behind the return of The Walking Dead the previous night.

For comparison, NBC’s The Blacklist recently tumbled -36% in its second week on Thursday following a similar two-night launch that kicked off after the Super Bowl and carried over to Thursday.
