6 Million Watched ‘The Walking Dead’ Season Finale
Tuesday, December 7 by

Just to put it in perspective, remember that political blog you started back in college? It received six total clicks, four of which were from you at different machines around the computer lab. Multiply that times a million, and you’ve got the same numbers that AMC is putting up.

‘The Walking Dead’ Lives For Season 2

Thanks to a buttload (Nielson terminology) of people supporting zombie drama by tuning into “The Walking Dead,” AMC has picked up the show for a second season of 13 episodes. Yay, good television and the living dead can survive!

Everyone Watched ‘The Walking Dead’
Monday, November 1 by

Hordes of viewers shuffled toward the series premiere of "The Walking Dead" last night on AMC. So much so, that the new series made television history. The first series about zombies ("The Hills" doesn't count) netted a record-breaking 5.3 million viewers and a 3.3 adults 18-49 rating.
That's the largest premiere of any cable series this year as well as the largest in AMC history. That number would probably have been larger if football and the World Series weren't on last night, and folks like myself weren't out for Halloween. The writing is on the wall. Get ready for zombie over-exposure. They're the new Betty White. (THR)

Monday, November 1 by

"The Walking Dead" premiered at long last! Everyone was so excited that the entire country dressed up in costumes and had parties and went trick-or-treating, JUST to celebrate this shows premiere! What did you think of it (post a comment, let's discuss)? The ScreenJunkies review can be found here, and my review can be found here so I don't need to review it again. But what we wanted to do each week was have a post where we can discuss the show and point out some of the cooler moments, so let's do it.

Review: AMC’s ‘The Walking Dead’
Monday, October 18 by

I’m endlessly fascinated by zombie apocalypse stories, or any apocalypse stories for that matter. I just love to see the survivors scour the wastelands for supplies. The more supplies they have to gather, the better. There’ve been other post-apocalyptic shows but they didn’t have the “Mad Men” street cred. AMC’s zombie apocalypse show does.

Watch 17 Minutes of “Walking Dead” Goodness (Video)
Wednesday, October 13 by

If you're having a hard time waiting for the premiere of "The Walking Dead, we've got something that might hold you over. AMC has unveiled a 17-minute behind-the-scenes featurette chronicling the making of Frank Darabont's epic new Zombie series based on the Robert Kirkman comics.

My recommendation: starting tomorrow, watch one minute a day for the next 17 days. If my math is correct, that should get you to October 31st, the day on which the first episode will air. If my math is incorrect, I apologize. I went to public school. (First Showing)

Fan Created Title Sequence For ‘The Walking Dead’
Monday, September 27 by

Hey "The Walking Dead" producers, Daniel Kanemoto made an awesome title sequence for your new show. You should consider using it. Fans of the graphic novels might think the Eels song "Fresh Blood" is too upbeat for the bleak series, but at least we know this guy can put together an impressive "ripped from the pages of the comic" sequence. I say hire him to produce another one with the song of your choosing. A Korn/Mudvayne collabo would be perfect. Don't you agree, avid "Walking Dead" fans?

‘The Walking Dead’ Poster Rides In
Tuesday, September 21 by

AMC continues to tease us with materials from their upcoming Frank Darabont-produced series "The Walking Dead." Today we have a sweet poster for the show that captures a stunning scene from the trailer. With all that gridlock, you'd think some zombies would be shuffling in and out of lanes looking for brains. Maybe they know Frank Grimes would dismount his steed and put a bullet in their eye. It might as well be a shot of L.A.'s 405 Freeway on a Sunday afternoon.
"The Walking Dead" premieres Halloween night at 10PM on AMC. (/Film)

AMC’s ‘The Walking Dead’ Trailer Lives!
Tuesday, August 24 by

All us lucky folks saw it at Comic Con last month, and now it's lumbered onto the internets for you to devour. AMC has released the almost five-minute long trailer for their new series "The Walking Dead." If this doesn't make you crap your pants than check your pulse because you might be a zombie. Frank Darabont wrote and directed pilot and is exec producing the series alongside Gale Anne Hurd, the producer of Aliens and Terminator.
AMC also announced that the show will premiere Oct. 31 with a supersized 90-minute episode. That's right, on Halloween night. It's a calculated effort to keep all you man-children off the streets on an evening that's reserved for kiddies. Or better yet, terrorize your neighbors early and then make it back to the couch with your stolen loot for "The Walking Dead" premiere.

AMC Officially Picks Up ‘The Killing’
Wednesday, August 11 by

AMC has officially picked up the crime thriller the "The Killing" to series. It will join the line-up of "Mad Men," "Rubicon," "Breaking Bad," and "The Walking Dead," the Frank Darabont zombie series that you and I both can't wait to premiere in October. The show will be renamed, and run by creator/executive producer Veena Sud.
Set in Seattle, the series is based on the wildly successful Danish television series “Forbrydelsen” and tells the story of the murder of a young girl and the subsequent police investigation. Production on the series begins this fall in Vancouver and season one consists of 13, one-hour episodes. The series is slated to premiere in 2011 on AMC.
If you're intrigued, you can read the rest of the press release after the jump. And just FYI, Keanu Reeves doesn't star in it. Awww, don't be sad. Put that sandwich down and get off of that bench.

‘Breaking Bad’ Hopes Webisodes Will Hold You Over Until 2011
Wednesday, August 4 by

July of 2011 is a long way off; almost a year by some estimates. Unfortunately, that's how long we'll have to wait for new episodes of "Breaking Bad." But to help keep fans from resorting to meth use, the show's producers are developing a series of three-to-four minute webisodes to run on the AMC website. According to the show's star, Bryan Cranston, these websiodes will be more than just fluff.
"I for one am eager to make these little interstitials important. I don’t want them to be simply filler or recap, but something that actually moves the storyline forward. If we’re going to do it, it ought to be a real part of the larger show.”
This sounds like a welcome change from the "Battlestar Galactica" websiodes, which consisted mainly of deleted scenes and 15 minutes of Edward James Olmos letting loose on the can. (Deadline)

‘The Walking Dead’ Behind the Scenes with Zombies and Tanks
Monday, July 19 by

MTV News went behind the scenes of AMC's "The Walking Dead," currently shooting in Atlanta, and snagged some awesome footage of a tank with zombies surrounding it. The show will be about more than that, but a tank with zombies surrounding it is always a good start. The author of the graphic novel, Robert Kirkman, and writer/executive producer/director of the pilot, Frank Darabont, give us some inside info on the zombie apocalypse series, the latter while wearing a Hawaiian shirt, of course. Needless to say, I'm amped for "The Walking Dead" to premiere in October. Since the leaves don't change color in L.A., it's all I have to look forward to.Check out the video after the jump…

Full Cast Pic from AMC’s ‘The Walking Dead’
Thursday, July 15 by

We've got a lot of picture news for you this morning so you don't have to process words. Here's a group snapshot of the cast from AMC's The Walking Dead. If that isn't a ragtag crew of zombie ass-kickers, than I don't know what is. The little boy looks confused, but maybe some zombie taped a clever sign to Rick Grimes's back. They're natural pranksters.Here's an image from The Walking Dead graphic novel:Looks similar, right? Zombies and people. What more do you want?! The cast pic comes from the invite to the Comic-Con The Walking Dead party that I failed to receive. I'm sure it's in the mail though. You know how the mail is sometimes… **Wipes single tear from clown-make-uped cheek** (io9)
