  • Alienware

    Put a fork in it, TWD is DONE!

  • Jason

    I love that even when it goes against supposed strong competition like AMA’s, it always stays strong and takes a chunk out of the other audience. Good for AMC. :)

  • forg

    Still awesome for The Walking Dead

  • George

    Yeh Alienware it sure looks done :-p

  • RAYRAY

    Disney rocked the night!

  • John A

    Pitx TWD went down that much still great though. The 10pm repeat is up 2 tenths from last week.

  • Meanie

    Walking Dead did great against the AMA’s. AMC best show is The Walking Dead & The Walking Dead Re-run. I know AMC is running to the bank :)

    RHOA did its usual nothing to be happy bout even tho I’m liking this season.

    Sofia The First did good but I have to add that movie sucked. I’m happy it didn’t come out in theaters. I prefer Disney to do hand drawn movies & the plot was boring.

  • John A

    With all the buzz Homeland gets you would think it be higher.

  • Scott AP

    good for TWD

    one of my favorite shows. glad its doing well

  • jay

    Homeland deserves wayyyy better. It should be in the 2s. At least. Breaking Bad is the best show on tv broadcast or cable. That doesn’t do nearly as good as it should either.

  • Davis

    Ratings and viewers for ‘Homeland’ belongs up there with ‘Walking Dead’… best show Showtime channel has

  • Justin121

    I think, on some level, The Walking Dead should be crowend “The Most Successful Show on Television”.

    It doesn’t seem to be getting enough credit (Mad Men, Big Bang…).

  • POIFanatic

    Awesome for TWD. I like the show even with all the inconsistencies.

    @John A @Jay: People don’t like smart shows. Give them mindless zombie hunting and they’ll be happy like babies ignoring all the flaws and fake drama.

    PS: Still think Rick is one of the best characters this season. And I still love Maggie.

  • xwiseguyx

    Um. Have you see the ratings for Showtime’s other series.. that is phenomenal for Homeland.

  • Stefan

    @ Nick
    WWE Main Event, Saturday Morning Slam and AM Raw please- Thanks in advance!

  • jT

    @Justin121 that’s because the walking dead is not a great story like mad men breaking bad, and game of thrones.

    The general public perceives it as the twilight for nerds and comic book fans.

  • Maxine

    The general public perceives you jT like a fat virgin who should get out more.

  • jT

    @maxine your mother perceives me…….i’m not even going to there.

  • Maxine

    Oh and I love how the other virgins are calling Homoland a ‘smart’ show. Wooooo it got CIA and terrorism and the other 80% is a soap opera and it’s so smart! Give me a break. This season is actually even worse than the second year of TWD. And don’t even get me started on the idiocy called Dexter.

  • Bretta

    Bye comic book men… that is horrible
