'The Walking Dead' Premiere: Highest Ratings Yet!

AMC’s killer zombie drama, The Walking Dead, pulled in a series high during Sunday night’s season two premiere. Over seven million total viewers tuned in for the first episode of the thirteen episode season!

The show re-aired twice that night, bringing in an additional four million viewers, upping the number to eleven million total tune-ins.

These numbers broke records with adults ages 18-49, who are reportedly tuning into The Walking Dead more than any other basic cable series ever to be aired, according to Entertainment Weekly!

The season one finale brought in six million viewers last year.

The Walking Dead is one of those rare television programs that reaches both a core genre fan as well as broad audiences simply looking for a great, character-based story,” AMC president Charlie Collier said.
