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.
