    'The Walking Dead' breaks basic cable record, scores 10.9M viewers

    "The Walking Dead" returned in its Season 3 premiere to 10.9 million viewers, making it the most-watched basic cable drama telecast ever.
    The episode, which found a band of survivors cleaning out a prison full of walkers, grew more than 50 percent over last season's premiere, scoring an astonishing 7.3 million viewers in the key 18-49 demographic.
    In addition, the Season 2 premiere of the wrap-up show "Talking Dead" at 11 p.m. attracted 2.1 million viewers, growing 85 percent over the Season 1 premiere.
    Including the 10 p.m. and midnight encores for "The Walking Dead," it scored 15.2 million viewers.
    "Thank you to the fans for making 'The Walking Dead' such a tremendous success," said Charlie Collier, president of AMC. "We are honored and humbled that television's largest adult audience resides on AMC. So many people on both sides of the camera worked tirelessly on this project, and I thank and congratulate each of them for their amazing contribution."
    As AMC noted, it hit the ratings high without the show airing on Dish Networks, which have dropped AMC networks. Dish claims AMC scores low ratings outside of Sunday dramas, but AMC contends that Dish is seeking leverage in an unrelated lawsuit.

    Great 1st show. Did they cut the old mans leg off in time or will he turn?

    Will they and the prisoners be able to form an alliance?

    Who is the sister with the swords and walkers in chains?

    Michonne played by Danai Gurira



    It's going to be interesting to see what type of role she has in this...From the beginning of season 3 we see that she has saved Andrea...and they've been teamed up for a few months now. But in the comic book Michonne actually saves Otis who was killed off in the 2nd season by Shane....her and Otis actually end up going to meet the others at the Prison.

    But I'm sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo friggin excitied...This season has been a long time coming.

    I kind of hope they veer back towards the comic. The series is great, but I think they left some pretty mind blowing things on the table in the adaptation. They're a pretty good read if one is into graphic novels and comics.

    The arc will go back to the comic. But they go off for filler in the story and how the public reacts to characters

    peace

    I hear people talking about this show all the time, but i've personally never seen it and it doesn't sound like something i would even want to check for.

    The title alone turns me off.
