As we approach the final Doctor Who episodes/specials with David Tennant, BBC America has announced that last Saturday's airing of Doctor Who: The Waters Of Mars gave them their highest ever primetime rating.  Over 1.1 million viewers watched on Saturday, December 19, which pushed the BBC America to #13 in coverage rating during the premiere among ad supported cable networks for ages 25-54.

“The final specials starring David Tennant have opened the door for new audiences to this iconic series while taking longtime fans on an incredible journey,” says Richard De Croce, Senior Vice President Programming, BBC AMERICA. “Tennant’s remaining two specials, The End of Time, Part One and Part Two, are the most anticipated episodes in the history of the series – which is why we’re airing them just a day after their UK premiere.”

The final two End Of Time specials premiere on BBC America December 26 at 9:00 pm ET/PT and January 2, 8:30 pm ET/PT.  Don't forget to tune in this Saturday or at least set your DVR.
