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 about the living dead can survive! Sharon Tal Yguado, AMC SVP Scripted Programming, said, “I wish all programming decisions were no brainers like this one The Walking Dead is a TV masterpiece on so many levels. We want at least 10 seasons, if not more. Kudos to AMC!”

"Decisions were no brainers?" Who's writing this woman's material? If I find out one of my freelancers is moonlighting as an SVP Scripted Programming quote writer he and I are going to have words. You save that pun-y gold for the site! (THR)
