10.5 Million Tune in to The Walking Dead Season 3 Midseason Finale

The Walking Dead midseason finale on Sunday (Dec 2, 2012) further enforced AMC's popular zombie drama/thriller as one of the most successful shows on television today, with a massive 10.5 million viewers tuning in, only to be left with an un-dead like appetite for more. 

This might not mean much to you 18-49 year-olds, but you; you're part of a key demographic. TV networks love you, and 6.9m of you have been watching The Walking Dead, which makes them very happy. We can't imagine many 50 year olds watching the sometimes gruesome drama, so we can only surmise that you under 18's are filling up on some pretty dark stuff. The impressive figures from Sunday's cliff-hanger were slightly less than October's third-season premiere but up 58 percent compared with season two's midseason finale. In fact, October's premiere scored 10.9 million total viewers, making it the highest-rated episode in series history, up more than 50 percent from its record-breaking season two premiere. 

"Representing both the studio and the network as AMC does on this project, I speak for so many when I say 'thank you and congratulations' to everyone involved," AMC presidentCharlie Collier said, according to The Hollywood Reporter. "The records that The Walking Dead shattered today represent an enormous achievement of which we are so proud."
