NEW YORK, May 30 (UPI) -- The first installment of the American miniseries "Hatfields & McCoys" was seen by 13.9 million total viewers when it debuted, the History channel said.

The 6-hour drama series kicked off Monday, continued Tuesday and is to conclude Wednesday.

"With all the success we have had at History, we felt strongly for some time that we should own historical drama, and in true History fashion, we have done it, with -- pardon the pun -- guns ablazin! We couldn't be more proud of the entire cast and crew -- this has been an amazing collaboration -- from Kevin Costner, Bill Paxton, Mare Winningham, Powers Boothe, Tom Berenger, and everyone involved in truly making history," said Nancy Dubuc, president and general manager of the History channel.
