Ratings Review: THE WALKING DEAD (Spring 2013)

THE WALKING DEAD has become the #1 program, in all of television in the A18-49 ratings. It regularly draws a high five/low six rating in the demographic. It topped THE BIG BANG THEORY in most weeks in this important advertising measurement. for this spring half of the season, the series averaged a whopping 5.8 rating in the demo.

THE WALKING DEAD is also a big hitter in total viewers. For the 8 episodes it average 11.4 million viewers. It is usually the most watched regular program on Sunday nights. Only THE BIBLE gave it competition n the viewership ratings.

THE WALKING DEAD should be around for a long time, but the question could be "On what network?" I have heard reports that the parent company of AMC may shift the series to one of its lesser networks as a bargaining chip when negotiation subscription rated and renewals with the cable and satellite companies. Hopefully your TV provider will carry IFC or the Sundance Channel.

  1. If AMC truly does shift the show to a new network, the show will die.
