"Storage Wars" has just lifted the door on some record ratings.

The A&E reality hit about storage auctions delivered 5.1 million total viewers in its Season 2 premiere at 10:30 Wednesday night, according to the Nielsen Co. That was the second half of back-to-back premiere episodes; the first scored 4.5 million viewers.

That makes it the highest-rated series telecast in A&E history. Perhaps more impressive: The hour beat original episodes of NBC's reality dating show "Love in the Wild" (4.6 million) and ABC's newsmagazine "Primetime Nightline" (3.2 million).

"Storage Wars" is structured as a competition among professional buyers who bid on the unclaimed contents of commercial storage lockers after getting just a quick glimpse inside.

Trackers, what do you think of "Storage Wars"?
