AMC's "Breaking Bad" wrapped its fourth season Sunday with the most-watched finale in the show's history.

An average of 1.9 million viewers tuned in to the 10 p.m. airing, according to Nielsen. That was up 12% from last year's number and capped a season of record ratings for the show, which stars Bryan Cranston as a high school teacher who turns to meth manufacturing after he's diagnosed with terminal cancer.

11 p.m. and 1 a.m. repeats pushed the "Breaking Bad" finale to a grand total of 2.9 million viewers.

Those numbers are still niche by broadcast standards, of course, but "Breaking Bad" has proved a dependable performer for AMC, also home of "Mad Men" and the zombie drama "The Walking Dead."
