Kevin Costner's historical drama Hatfields & Mccoys has shattered U.S. TV ratings records after drawing an audience of 13.9 million for its Monday evening (28May12) premiere.
The Dances With Wolves star plays 'Devil' Anse Hatfield opposite Bill Paxton as Randall MCCoy in the three-part series, about the two families' infamous post-American Civil War feud over a stolen pig, and viewers tuned in in droves to catch the two-hour debut, making it the most-watched non-sports programme in ad-supported cable history.
Another 3.8 million caught the encore presentation later on Memorial Day, taking the total audience to 17.7 million viewers.
The record was held by Tom Selleck's TV movie Crossfire Trail, which drew 12.5 million viewers when it aired in 2001.
The news is sure to put a smile on Costner's face - it started out as a passion project of his and he had hoped to direct the drama before stepping down due to other work commitments.
