The Walking Dead: Record Ratings for AMC!

by at . Comments

Not even two months off the air can slow down The Walking Dead.

AMC's smash hit drew a ridiculous 12.3 million viewers last night, easily setting a record for the largest audience to ever tune in for a scripted cable drama.

Moreover, 7.7 million of those viewers were in the advertiser-friendly 18-49-year-old demographic, a figure that would beat nearly ever series on network television.

"When you look at numbers like this, the first thing that comes to mind is how grateful we are to the fans of this show. They embrace ‘The Walking Dead’ in a way that we wanted to believe was possible but we never take for granted,” said Charlie Collier, AMC’s president. “The cast and crew put everything they have into making this show. They’re a phenomenally talented group who truly give their all. We congratulate everyone involved.”
