FX’s Sons of Anarchy roared back to its fifth season, premiering to 5.37 million total viewers Tuesday night, according to Nielsen, a series high for the biker drama.

The 90-minute season opener improved 10% over its season-four debut last September, and made gains in key demos, up 9% to 3.5 million persons 18 to 49 and up 14% to 3.45 million adults 25 to 54. Combined with its 11:30 p.m. and 1 a.m. replays, the episode garnered 7.5 million total viewers.

FX’s expects SOA’s premiere to become its most watched telecast on the network ever once live+7 data is factored in.
