TV: AMC’s ‘The Walking Dead’ a Powerhouse in the Ratings!

Finally horror is getting some mother effin’ respect on the small screen! AMC’s The Walking Dead premiere ratings are enormous: The 90-minute Halloween night debut delivered 5.3 million viewers and a 3.3 adults 18-49 rating. That’s the largest demo audience for any series premiere on any cable network this year. It’s also the highest numbers for any series in AMC’s history, and beat most non-sports programs on broadcast Sunday night. Unless Walking Dead suffers an enormous ratings drop off in the coming weeks (it won’t), a second season order is very likely. Now it’s time to bring on “Locke & Key” and “Preacher”. Viva horror!!!!!
