The Walking Dead Returns to BIG Ratings!
I have to admit I have been way down on The Walking Dead the last two seasons. With shows like Breaking Bad, Dexter, and Sons of Anarchy coming down the home stretch my fired up feeling had just became a mere flicker.
But, The Walking Dead returned with what I thought was the best episode in two seasons. And the ratings agree.
The Walking Dead beat out Sunday Night Football (no easy feat ever). It took in 17.3 million viewers and 11 million in the 18-49 demo. And a massive 22 million in time shifted results.
The previous ratings record for an episode of "The Walking Dead" was 16.1 million total viewers and 10.4 million viewers 18-49 for the season four premiere, live/same day. With seven days of DVR playback included, the season four premiere delivered 21.1 million total viewers and 13.9 million adults 18-49, becoming the most highly-rated episode in cable television history.
