According to Nielsen numbers released on Tuesday, AMC’s “The Walking Dead” dominated Sunday night primetime viewing again, reeling in 11.5 million viewers, making it the most watched show of the night.
“The Walking Dead” was also tops in the highly coveted 18-to-49 demographic, earning a 7.2 rating.
While the Rick-Governor showdown lacked the punch many of the show’s previous episodes thrived upon, it seemed evident the episode was acting merely as the calm before the storm.
With so much on the line between the Woodbury and prison communities, expecting a big showdown with three episodes remaining in the show’s third season would be misguided.
It is interesting, however, to see the cracks that are starting to appear in The Governer’s henchmen.
Speaking of fences, the makeup love scene between Glenn and Maggie proved that the network’s decision to up the show’s rating from TV-14 to TV-MA was warranted.
As the show rolls toward its season finale on April 7, it seems likely that The Governor or Rick will not make it out of the season alive.
This viewer’s money says that The Governor will wind up being on the short end of the battle. Hopefully, the Woodbury residents won’t have to pay the price for his tyranny.
“The Walking Dead” airs on Sundays at 7 p.m. on AMC in Provo.
