AMC's 'The Walking Dead' walks into TV history books


The zombies just made basic-cable history.

About 6 million viewers tuned in to watch the season finale of AMC's "The Walking Dead" on Sunday, effectively making the spooky drama the most-watched drama series in basic-cable history among 18-to-49-year-olds.

Averaging 3.5 million viewers in that coveted advertiser demographic, "The Walking Dead" recently was renewed for a second season.

Great Season 1! Writing needs to be cleaned up a bit though...lots of unexplained details or stuff that doesn't make sense: In the finale, the CDC building is blown up a few hundred yards from the vehicle caravan, yet none of the windshields, mirrors are broken!...i can suspend reality with the best of them, but sometimes your writing can't be that sloppy!

This show is amazing.
