The Walking Dead based on the comic series of the same name by Robert Kirkman, is know for it’s earth-shattering, record breaking ratings and viewership. After factoring in three days of time-shifted viewing, Sunday’s episode (how the hell is [SPOILER] dead… you had one job script writer… keep the dude alive) delivered 18.2 million viewers, with 12 million adults 18-49 and 11.5 million adults 25-54 in live+3 ratings. It was up across the board vs. the third episode of last season, according to Nielsen.
So while we quickly mourn the ones lost, we have to go through the whole goddamn thing again. Can’t catch a break. And we are all smiles for it.
