The Walking Dead Makes History

The Walking Dead continues to not only survive but actually thrive in the brutal, savage, cannibalistic world that is the TV ratings business with a historic first in television history.

The Los Angeles Times reports:

"The zombie smash has become the first cable series to win the fall TV ratings in the key demographic of adults ages 18 to 49, according to Nielsen."

The Walking Dead's midseason finale on Sunday night was watched live by 10.5 million viewers. An additional 4.7 million caught encores of the show and another 3.4 million viewers are expected to watch it via their DVR.

Congratulations to AMC and the cast, crew and makers of The Walking Dead.
