Home shopping fans, we knew we’re off topic. But we had to follow-up briefly on the season finale of FX’s “Sons of Anarchy” and Kurt Sutter’s future with the cable network.

Tuesday’s Season Two wrap-up of “Sons” was cable’s No. 1 program for the evening, drawing 4.33 million viewers and 2.99 million adults 18 to 49, according to Nielsen Media Research.

The episode, written and directed by Sutter, was the most-watched ever for “Sons,” outdelivering its Season Two premiere, which attracted 4.29 million viewers. Sutter, a native of Clark, N.J., is the creator and executive producer of the drama about a California motorcycle club.

Sutter had some more good news, because FX has ordered 13 episodes for the show’s third season, which is set to start in September 2010, FX president and general manager John Landgraf said in a press release Wednesday.

Sutter also struck a deal with FX on a two-year extension to continue his services as showrunner/writer on “Sons.” And just as good, all the series regulars will be back next season. Hello Charlie Hunnam.

“This has been a wonderful ride and we’re just getting started,” Sutter said in a prepared statement. “I’m really proud of the work by our incredible cast and crew. The response this season from the fans and critics has been terrific and I can’t wait to get back to the writer’s room and start on Season Three.”
