Wow. Last night’s episode of “The Walking Dead“, “Nebraska”, scored some insane numbers! 8.1 Million viewers checked out the initial airing and an additional 2 million tuned in for later broadcasts bringing the tally to a whopping 10.1 million pairs of eyes. “The Walking Dead” is already a ratings behemoth, especially for a cable show, but this shattered its own prior record by a significant margin.
The show “tells the story of the weeks and months that follow a pandemic zombie apocalypse. County Sheriff Rick Grimes travels with his family and a small group of survivors, constantly in search of a safe and secure home. But the constant pressure of fighting off death on a daily basis takes a heavy toll, sending many to the lowest depths of human cruelty. As Rick struggles to keep his family alive, he will discover that the overwhelming fear of the survivors can be far more dangerous than the mindless walkers roaming the earth.”
Next week’s episode is entitled “Triggerfinger” and airs next Sunday, February 19th at 9/8c.
