It's official and it's impressive: Sons of Anarchy Season 7 is off to a very strong start.

A record-setting start, in fact.

The final season of this FX drama revved up Tuesday night with 6.2 million total viewers and a 3.2 rating among 18-49-year olds, up 5 percent and a tenth of a point, respectively, from its penultimate premiere a year ago.

Both figures are all-time highs for the series.
