The Walking Dead returns to record ratings

by on Feb.11, 2013, under Television

If you watched The Walking Dead return from it’s mid-season break, you definitely weren’t alone…12.3 million viewers watched the initial airing, with 7.7 million in the Adults 18-49 group – a record for a basic cable series, and despite the fact that it was up against the Grammy Awards.

Counting the three encores, a total of 16.6 million watched it – and that still doesn’t include DVR viewers over the next several days.

There are 7 more episodes remaining in the third season. The fourth season is expected to begin production in October.
