Some wondered if a TV show based on an 18-year old movie would be successful? Well, FX and the creators of Fargo have an answer for those people.

Last night's debut of Fargo on FX brought in 4.5 million viewers, which was nearly twice the amount of viewers for the season premiere of Mad Men, according to The Star Tribune.

The premiere was praised by critics and viewers alike, including myself. If the first episode was any indication of things to come, I can guarantee you I won't be missing an episode.

In case you missed out on all of the blood and violence one would expect from Fargo, FX will repeat the first episode tonight at 11:20pm, tomorrow night at midnight, and Saturday night at midnight.

You can catch Fargo Tuesday nights on FX. Check out the first seven minutes of the premiere above.
