History's 'Hatfields & McCoys' Beats Own Record With 14.3 Million Viewers

At the end of its three-night run, History Channel's Hatfields & McCoys miniseries now holds the top three slots among entertainment telecasts in ad-supported cable history.

Wednesday night's conclusion brought in 14.3 million viewers, topping the previous broadcasts and becoming the most-watched non-sporting event ever for basic cable.

Monday's premiere pulled in 13.9 million viewers before dipping slightly to 13.1 million on Tuesday. In the demos, Wednesday’s finale pulled in a whopping 6.3 million adults 25-54 and 5.1 million with adults 18-49.

Hatfields & McCoys, starring Kevin Costner and Bill Paxton as patriarchs of America's most famous feuding families, marked a scripted debut for History -- which abandoned the miniseries The Kennedys last year before it eventually aired on ReelzChannel.

The series was produced by Thinkfactory Media and History EPs Nancy Dubuc and Dirk Hoogstra. It gets a speedy DVD and Blu-Ray release on July 31.
