"Hatfields & McCoys," the History channel miniseries starring Bill Paxton, above, as Randall McCoy and Kevin Costner as Devil Anse Hatfield, came out guns blazing in more ways than one.

And its viewership actually increased on its final night, nearly unheard of for a multi-episode program in recent years.
