    The problem with season 2 of The Walking Dead was that it was rubbish and popular – for some reason. Now we’re in to season 3, and it’s become AMAZING again. Truly top-notch entertainment.

    The ratings are now deserved, and I can see them going up as the hype continues.

  • Emery Jason

    @ClamCam: sounds like you’re a bitter anti-ABC fan…

  • Meanie

    The Walking Dead puts Broadcast Tv to shame. I see by the end of season 3 finale will do atleast 6.0demo and atleast 12-14million.

  • Justin J. Poppiti, Esq.

    I’m going to miss Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.

  • John

    Awesome for TWD, I don’t know what season 1 and 2 ratings were, but a 5.6 is awesome. Anyone else think AMC might renew TWD for seasons 4 & 5 all at once?

  • James

    Thanks @Nick

  • poweranimals

    I hope Disney doesn’t blame SIU for the drop in ratings after A&A. 9pm is kinda late for the target audience on a school night.

  • Seth

    Breaking Amish is an absolutely amazing show, and gets better every week. It deserves all it’s rating success. Homeland is turning into one of the silliest shows on tv.

  • ClamCam

    @Emery Jason,
    Now that Ive read my post looks like it, but No, au contraire, the only shows I watch on broadcast are from abc : revenge, GA and MF.
    Dont even get me started on the CBS procedurals, or NBC comedies…!

  • LT

    I bet TWD’s 5.6 beat Monday Night Football as well. We shall see later on today.

  • Sel

    I wish AMC to put The Killing after TWD next year and hopefully pull out some decent numbers as it deserves.

  • browncoats unite

    Dear TV by the Numbers,

    Could you please give us the rating for the Firefly 10th Anniversary Reunion that was broadcast on the Science Channel Sunday night? Thank you!

    Sincerely,

    The Firefly Internet Fan Community

  • Rusty

    Walking Dead has to be the most overrated show on television right now. A dumb show about zombies, that should be a movie. There are other shows that deserve way better ratings than this.

  • JJ

    @Rusty
    LOL. Pressed much?

    @browncoats unite
    Here are the numbers: Firefly 10th Anniversary (0.2) 0.730 million viewers

  • john

    @Rusty

    This thread deserves better posts than it is getting from you.

  • steve

    Wow at TWD I’m amazed AMC haven’t yet made an official annoucement of giving it season 4 yet

  • lakergirl

    So RHOM couldn’t hold on to that lead huh.

  • lakergirl

    RHOA was down from last week and it came on at the same time. It just dipped, had nothing to do with RHOM airing afterwards.

  • Dan S

    TWD rules but definitely needs a companion show to follow it. Maybe the final season of Breaking Bad which could receive a considerable boost as a lead out for TWD.

  • TVMAN

    TWD should tell Broadcast TV to make decent TV shows. Their cop/Hospital shows army doing it anymore. I applaud AMC. Hopefully they can bring up rest of networks ratings with TWD
