On Sunday night AMC’s adaption of Robert Kirkman’s Image Comics hit, The Walking Dead, debuted, and it was a rating success. Drawing in over 5.3 million viewers it now holds the record for highest rated original series in the history of the network. In its key demographic, adults 18-49, it pulled in 3.6 million viewers. It’s also the highest rated series premier on cable so far in 2010. Not to mention that when you tally in the numbers of the replay, the grand total of viewership for Sunday night totals in around 8.1 million people.
I’d say that AMC has a success, and that somewhere Robert Kirkman is doing whatever variety of happy dance he prefers. A well deserved happy dance of personal preference!
