    TWD amazing!! in your face Revolution! :D

  • JJ

    Even if you eliminated half of TWD’s audience by attributing their viewership to bad taste or zombie fandom or whatever, it would still dominate cable and get ratings that give broadcast dramas a run for their money.

  • JayJay

    The Walking Dead is only further proof that we really are living in the Golden Age of television. I’m so honored to be experiencing this show first-hand while it’s still airing, rather than watching it’s re-runs in 20 years.

  • poweranimals

    Does anyone know how Dog with a Blog did?

  • MagicBishop

    Boardwalk just got interesting. Best episode of the season. I’ll be watching it in its real time showing next week.

    Dog With a Blog (8:00) – Disney
    2.580 million viewers, #7; 0.360 million adults 18-49 (0.3 rating), #21

  • poweranimals

    @Anonymous Thanks! You wouldn’t happen to know how Victorious and Marvin Marvin did on Saturday, would you?

  • Dontryl Alexander

    I told you Liz and Dick were a flop with a 1.0 rating!

  • Anonymous

    I’m trying to find out but a user name “Twist of Fate” said that they didn’t trend on Twitter unlike iGoodbye. He predicted something between in the mid 2s to low 3s. If this happens, that’s not good for either of them.

  • JJ

    LOL is this “JayJay” trying to troll me? That’s cute.

  • snoot

    I will never understand why the walking dead is so popular. Why the fascination with zombies? I don’t get it.

  • Troy J.

    Walking dead is less about Zombies and more about the human condition when we are in crisis. What are we going to do in said circumstance when a life is on the line. I know how everyone loves to make comparisons, but I truly feel like it compares to ER when it was in it’s hayday, as you were not tuning in to see someone being treated in the ER but to see how people would react and persevere through a hardship. Or Hill Street Blues, it was not about the cops, but about how everyone interacted with each other and that is why we have so many cop shows today that just do not measure up.

    If you do not like zombies, then maybe give the show a chance and see it for what it is, the human condition challenged when everything is on the line. We wish we could be a Rick or a Daryl, but most of us are a Shane or a Dale. And even a few of us are a Governor or Merle. Self Examination brought on by a TV show makes this show the best out right now. I cannot watch an episode and wonder how I myself would handle what they have been forced to endure.

    Just my 2 cents.

  • Stefan

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

  • Ally

    @ Michael “ITS TIME NETWORK TV TAKE NOTE FROM THESE MORE GRITTY REALISTIC SHOWS LIKE WALKING DEAD.. IF YOUR GONNA MAKE ANYTHING YOU WANT IT AS REALISTIC AS POSSIBLE” Realistic! LOL

  • Trice Crew

    The Walking Dead realistic? That’s one of the fakest and most overrated shows I’ve ever seen in my life. That show doesn’t deserve high ratings like that a lot of other shows deserve that number more.

    Home Alone is doing its thing for a 20+ year old movie.

  • Maxyne

    Trice Crew = a fat frustrated virgin. Your opinion means exactly s**t you dumb puke.

  • Jeremy

    First off if it wasnt for the fact that the walking dead airs right after again with the same episode that 1st number of a 5.4 would be alot higher cause lets face it the majority of those watching the second airing didnt watch the first.. As for quality well when TWD should that little girl getting shot last season made it real and told you they will take risks on this show.. Unlike say a NBC where if it was the same case we would HEAR a gun shot and the screen would go black!!!! AM I RIGHT!!

  • Jeremy

    showed*********

  • Eljacko

    Great bounce back for The Walking Dead! At 4.9, I thought it would get cancelled!!!!!

  • IMJ

    Time for a walking dead spinoff about another group in another location battling zombies. It will be a hit!
