Yellowstone is continuing to take down all its competition in TV ratings with its Season 3 finale. The Paramount Network series drew in 5.2M total viewers in Live+Same Day.

The high octane season finale brought in one million more viewers than any other episode in the show’s history, Deadline reports. According to Nielsen, last night’s episode made it the most-watched cable telecast of the year.

Compared to the season 2 finale, the show’s numbers increased drastically for Sunday night’s installment. The finale performed better in all of the key demographics. Yellowstone was up 81% in P25-54 , up 71% in P18-49, and up 84% in P2+.

Not only did the series post remarkable numbers on cable, but also Yellowstone’s popularity on social media continues to rise. On Facebook alone, Season 3 ranks first for views and engagements. The show beats out the rest of cable TV, except for sports, live events, and news.

In February, Paramount Network renewed the series for a fourth season. Yellowstone’s executive producers include John Linson, Art Linson, Taylor Sheridan, Kevin Costner, David C. Glasser, Bob Yari, and Stephen Kay.
