“The ‘Dead’ has spread!” AMC’s President, Charlie Collier, said via press release.  “No other cable series has ever attracted as many Adults 18-49 as ‘The Walking Dead.’  This reaffirms viewers’ hunger for premium television on basic cable.  We are so proud to be bringing back ‘The Walking Dead’ again, across the globe.”

Did Last Night’s ‘Guts’-y ‘Walking Dead’ Gross You Out?

The Halloween premiere of  ‘The Walking Dead’ shattered ratings records for AMC, with a total of 5.3 million viewers tuning in. Last night’s episode dropped slightly to 4.7 million. (Still, those are certainly big enough numbers to merit a renewal!)
