LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - The return of AMC's "Breaking Bad" was the show's most-watched episode ever.

Sunday night's Season 3 opener drew 2 million viewers, a number that rose to 3.3 million when the episode's dual repeat airings are included.

Overall, that's up 17 percent from the "Breaking" Season 2 premiere. Among adults 18-49, "Breaking" pulled in 663,000 viewers.

By comparison, the debut of AMC's other critical darling, "Mad Men," last season drew 2.9 million viewers.
