    TWD can beat the ratings but dexter and homeland is waaaaaaaaaaay ahead greater

  • John A

    Thanks i thought it was either 5.6 or 5.8 the series. Hope it can get a 6.0 sometime this season.

  • RJ

    No surprise to see The Walking Dead spike this week. Last week was one of the series best episodes and people wanted to see the reaction. I expect next week to drop to a 5.2 or so.

  • John A

    Dexter is only meh this season. Homeland is good but TWD is outstanding.

  • Dennis

    Amazing ratings for TWD. Wondering why AMC hasn’t officially renewed it yet… Maybe it has to do with episode order or they want to renew it for multiple seasons!:P

  • Jesse

    I agree with RJ. It should drop next week. Ravens at Steelers will be a big draw. The half season ends in 3 weeks. I hope it can push it to the 6.0 level.

  • richard

    Yeah, I would agree with those who say that it went up because of last week’s episode. Also, wow The Talking Dead can pull almost as good or better numbers than other AMC shows, and it costs virtually nothing to make!
    And I am still 3 episodes behind this season with Dexter, but this season is so good, at least what I have seen so far. It is definitely the best season since season 4.

  • Mon

    I love The Walking Dead. I’m happy that one of my favorite shows is not only doing great creatively but also delivering impressive ratings.

    Dexter and Homeland were pretty steady and up versus last season. Both shows are having incredible seasons. Dexter finally recovered from lackluster season 6. Homeland keeps raising the drama, and suspense.

    Boardwalk Empire is a fine, well-written drama. But I see its ratings were down versus last season, if I remember correctly. Nice to see my favorite Richard Harrow getting some screen time.

  • richard

    And Comic Book Men is doing pretty well for itself, and I’d imagine it is also fairly cheap to produce.

  • Oliver

    Any ratings for TBS’ Wedding Band, which was on Saturday?

  • richard

    AMC’s highest rated show is The Walking Dead. Their second highest rated Show is The Walking Dead Repeat.

  • Jeff

    THE WALKING DEAD is amazing. Please, time for some Emmy love to the show and cast. Please tell me how anything Mad Men or Breaking Bad does is of this caliber and this grand of a scale. Andrew Lincoln is acting circles around just about every other actor on TV. Andrea, Maggie, Darryl, and the Governor also deserve big time notice.

  • Mon

    I’m curious if The Walking Dead beat Sunday Night Football in certain demographic/s. Maybe M18-34? Would love to know if anyone has an info.

  • Oliver

    I suspect the only reason TWD doesn’t regularly break 6.0 is because a portion of its audience deliberately watch the repeat so they can catch The Talking Dead afterwards.

    I bet the finale will get 6.0+.

  • BB

    Great ratings for RHOM, thats a series high,Yes it benefited from RHOA, but Sundays are more popular, its two highest episodes aired on sundays.I think it wiill be up on thursday this week though theres a lot of drama now, its getting good.

  • Other Than That Mrs. Lincoln How Was The Play?

    Maybe they could have show called THE WALKING DEAD SHUNNED AMISH? The Shunned Amish could get quest spots on WD.

  • MikeyD

    Oh DEAR. A whole .2 down from the season 3 premiere??

    I think it’s time AMC cut that TWD budget again to accommodate Mad Men..

  • Jon

    The Walking Dead is a beast, I’m surprised AMC haven’t found a companion show for it yet as I imagine if it was good, a show could do 5-6m with that lead in.

  • richard

    @ Jeff, well walking dead is better than mad men (ive only seen the first 19 episodes of mad men, but still) but breaking bad is just amazing. the first 2 seasons especially. the later seasons are still really good, nut the first 2 seasons were the peak

  • amms

    Way to go RHOM…. Hopefully it will be renewed for season 3
