The cast and crew of The Walking Dead should all be proud of themselves for what they have accomplished with their incredible new show. The premiere ratings were huge! The 90-minute, Halloween night debut delivered 5.3 million viewers and a 3.3 adults 18-49 rating. This is the largest demo audience for any series premiere on any cable network this year. It's also the highest number of viewers for any series in AMC's history.
Is anyone surprised by this? Everyone I know was excited to watch the show, and it looks like they all turned out for it, which is awesome! The show was incredibly well made, and the word of mouth has been nothing but positive. There's no doubt that the show's ratings will only get better. I could have watched the entire season in one sitting if I was allowed to.
If for some reason you missed the show, make sure you watch it when you get a chance, because you're going to be blown away by its awesomeness!
I can't wait for next week's episode! It won't get here soon enough.
