[TV] 10.9 Million Zombie Fiends Watched “The Walking Dead”!

The Walking Dead

The Walking Dead opened its third season Sunday with a staggering 10.9 million viewers for its initial 9 o’clock telecast and 15 million for the night, reports Variety.

For the first time, AMC’s zombie skein aired without Dish Network carrying the cabler, and therefore eliminating another potential 14 million viewers the opportunity to watch.

Sunday’s premiere compares to the 7.3 million who tuned in to the first telecast of the season two premiere last October and the 9 million for the season finale in March.

Talk back here and then read my list of 6 things they did right with the season premiere.

    AWESOME way to kick off the season. Incredible ratings too, I can’t wait to see how the rest of the season’s ratings compare to the premiere.

    I havent seen one bad episode of the Walking Dead. Every episode is so well acted,well written and well directed! The producers have the focus on the STORY rather than the bloodshed. They got it right! Love the show and so happy to see it doing as well as it is!

    This more than made up for a poor season 2 (except finale was awesome)…Best episode yet in series.

  • Taboo

    Those are some great numbers, but If you count all of us that watched through random live streams then number probably would’ve been higher jeje
