"Sons of Anarchy" has some Charming news: The FX drama wrapped up Season 6 with its most-watched finale ever.

Kurt Sutter's drama - a loose take on "Hamlet" centered around a motorcycle club in the fictional hamlet of Charming - roared for a total of 5.2 million viewers Tuesday night, according to Nielsen.

Throw in an encore telecast, and the total rose to 6.4 million.

"SOA" carved some deep ratings tracks this year. Tuesday's episode, titled "A Mother's Work," was the second highest-rated ever for the series among viewers ages 18 to 49, exceeded only by the premiere earlier this season. That season premiere was the highest-rated telecast in the history of FX.

Overall, "SOA" has averaged 7.3 million total viewers this season. It was the No. 3 drama in 18 to 49 on cable TV this year, behind only "The Walking Dead" and "Breaking Bad."
