The pilot episode, which also featured special guest star Gabourey Sidibe, was released for online sampling two weeks ago and has since garnered over 1.6 million views. Looks like this one’s going to be a hit!

The sixth season premiere of Weeds, which also aired on Monday, broke records, delivering the series’ best night ever in viewers with more than 1.9 million people.
