The Walking Dead Returns to HUGE Ratings, Set Series High

by at . Comments

The Walking Dead didn't simply return to AMC last night. It returned to positively ridiculous ratings.

The Season 4 premiere of this cable smash garnered 16.1 million viewers and an 8.3 rating among the advertiser-friendly demographic of 18-49-year olds, both series records for the drama and the latter higher than ANY series on network television so far this fall.

The previous high for total viewers was a relatively paltry 12.4 million for last spring's Season 3 finale.

“Sincere thanks to the fans, who have welcomed The Walking Dead back for its fourth season with the highest-rated episode in the show's history,” said AMC President Charlie Collier in a statement. “We could not be more proud of this show and everyone on both sides of the camera who work so hard to give life to this story of character, leadership and survival.
