Once again, AMC’s “The Walking Dead” not only topped cable TV ratings for Sunday night, it topped all Sunday-night programs with 13.47 million viewers, according to ratings released on Tuesday.

CBS’ basketball coverage of the NCAA Tournament came in second for the night with 11.62 million viewers, while “60 Minutes” finished third with 11.31 million.

The Walking Dead” was also tops for the night in the 18-to-49 demographic with a 6.7 rating. NCAA basketball was the next highest in this category with a 4.0 rating.

“Talking Dead,” the zombie apocalypse drama’s wrap-up show, was second for the night in the cable ratings, attracting 5.29 million viewers and a 2.7 rating in the 18-to-49 demographic.

The Season 4 finale of “The Walking Dead” will air this Sunday at 7 p.m. on AMC in Provo.

Personal Take (Contains Spoilers)

It’s about time that some of the wandering groups found each other in Sunday night’s episode of “The Walking Dead.”

While the emotional strings behind Maggie’s and Glenn’s reunion didn’t latch on to this viewer’s heart, it was satisfying nonetheless to see two groups become one. There is strength in numbers, especially during the zombie apocalypse.

The long-awaited arrival at Terminus is here, but as was expected, the initial look and feel of the place is less than sanctuary-ish. Not even the familiar face of Tasha Yar (Denise Crosby) from “Star Trek: The Next Generation” as the one-person welcoming committee was enough to bring a warm and fuzzy feeling about the place.

Based on what we’ve seen so far, the combined group of Glenn, Maggie, Bob, et al, is the first to arrive at Terminus. That doesn’t mean they are, though.

It would be no surprise to learn that one, or more, of the groups is already there.

The group that makes the most sense for this to be the case is Carol, Tyreese, and Judith. Besides Beth, they were the only characters not accounted for in Sunday’s episode.

Given the power of last week’s “The Grove,” would anyone be surprised that they were the frontrunners in getting to Terminus?

It would not be disappointing to learn that these characters had a relatively easy road to Terminus after the tough decision to put Lizzie down.

Some viewers may have expected the Glenn-Maggie reunion to take place in upcoming season finale, but because it’s already happened, this viewer is expecting the season to end with something huge.

If there’s anything we’ve come to expect from “The Walking Dead,” it’s the unexpected.
