Holiday bonus for 'Sons of Anarchy' fans

FX has added a 14th episode to the current run of its popular motorcycle-gang drama "Sons of Anarchy," bringing the Season 4 finale to Dec. 6, the cable network announced today.

Creator Kurt Sutter is said to have asked for the extra time and no doubt chose a good moment. The show's having its highest-rated season yet, averaging 5.45 million viewers a week (with about 3 million more over multiple showings).

By the way, the network's release describes tomorrow's episode, "Hands" (10 p.m., FX) as "explosive."

Make of that what you will.
