Zombies sure are popular these days – so popular, in fact, that AMC’s February 12th mid-season premiere of “The Walking Dead” became the strongest telecast for any drama in basic cable history. To celebrate, we have a few stills from the upcoming Episode 2.09, “Triggerfinger”.
Per AMC’s press release, “The Walking Dead” mid-season return episode “Nebraska” became the strongest telecast for any drama in basic cable history against key demos including 5.4 million adults 18-49 and 4.4 million adults 25-54. These results shatter the previous record, which was held by the series’ October 16th Season Two premiere with increases of +12% and +6%, respectively. The show delivered 8.1 million viewers for its 9:00 pm premiere and 10.1 million viewers for the night (9:00 pm premiere and 11:00 pm and 12:30 am encores).
Congratulations to everyone involved with the production, and now on to the goods!
