'Walking Dead' Finale Scores Record Ratings

The Walking Dead‘s season 2 finale has shattered record ratings for AMC!

Nine million viewers tuned in for the episode, making it the highest-rated in the series’ history with nearly 6 million of them adults ages 18 to 49.

“I think the key for season 3 is to open it up. To continue to find new ways to terrorize the audience, to frighten our fans,” showrunner Glen Mazzara told EW.

“I think by the end of this season, people were saying, ‘How much more can I take?’ We want to continue that,” he added. “We want to make sure that you’re really immersed in the world of The Walking Dead, and you never know what’s going to hit you.”

DID YOU TUNE IN for the season 2 finale of The Walking Dead?

    Best show on TV! Love it. Really hope that Lori’s baby eats her from the inside out, can’t stand her. Btw, take Carl with her. Couldn’t believe she got upset and Carl starting crying when Rick HAD to kill Shane. Wish they’d bring the show back sooner than the Fall!

  • Dc

    My hubby got me into this show – love it – the best on tv.

    @ava – I Agee with you I cannot stand Lori.

    Was shocked about dale but even more so with Shane never expected it.

  • No Way

    EPIC! I do have one compliant, all the suspense raises my blood pressure! Ah! I love this show. I feel deprived when its not on tv.

  • ME

    Can’t wait to season 3, it should be good with some new characters! I hope Lori is next, she is a tramp! Doesn’t even know who the father is…. She loved having 2 men fight over her.. Carl should go to, he’s just as annoying as his mother!

  • illwill

    @Stan: It was just a question you bum and thanks for YOUR opinion

  • Susan

  • nswaffar

    I love Walking Dead and that season finale last night was awesome. Can’t wait for season 3, too bad we will all be waiting a while.

  • vanessa

    finale was so good… i love Daryl! sucks that we have to wait till october for the new season!

  • Jasmine

    That finale had me shouting and covering my eyes. GOOD JOB! They got exactly the reactions they had hoped for, at least at my house. I was also pissed at Lori, what was THAT reaction about? First she goads Rick into doing what he did and now she’s upset. Woman is trouble! Okay, ending my rant there. Great, great show and I can’t wait until season 3! This is one of the last quality shows left on tv!

  • LisaLipps

    Love Walking Dead. Can’t get enough of those flesh eating zombies. A star is born in Andrew Lincoln. Finally Michonne appears. Going to be a great Season 3. Can’t wait!
