Good news for people who like undead ghouls wandering around eating the flesh off of men, women, and children. Six-million sitting living watched The Walking Dead” season finale last Sunday. And in what is sure to be a boon for AMC’s advertising revenue, four-million of those viewers were between the ages of 18 and 49, boosting the series average for that coveted demographic to 3.5 million an episode, the best showing in basic cable history for that age group.
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. But don’t take it personally, as I’m sure your pro-Howard Dean editorial was really interesting. (Coming Soon)
