There's a new sheriff in town — and he tracked down some high ratings for A&E Sunday night.

"Longmire," starring Australian actor Robert Taylor as a charismatic Wyoming lawman, delivered 4.1 million total viewers Sunday night, according to Nielsen. That makes it A&E's most-watched scripted series premiere ever as well as the top cable drama launch of 2012.

"Longmire's" lead-in, the Season 3 rollout of the detective drama "The Glades," gathered 3.1 million total viewers, up 19% compared with the Season 2 average.
