Walkers and movie stars are taking over this Sunday, as both an all-new episode of the hit apocalypse show “The Walking Dead” debuts on AMC as well as the 2013 Academy Awards on ABC. On Saturday, Feb. 23, Orlando Sentinel listed what each show will be bringing to the table to help audiences make a decision on what program to tune in to.
“The Walking Dead” has managed to keep great ratings throughout all three seasons. The show is on the second half of season three, so fans are unlikely to miss the last several episodes. Plus, if fans have kept up with the huge previously revealed spoilers, they know episode 11 “I Ain’t a Judas” is going to be a great one. “The Walking Dead” has a massive fan following, but although the majority of young adults will be choosing to watch Rick and the gang, it’s a given that the older folks (and the few youngers that aren’t into “TWD”) will be tuning in to the 2013 Oscars.
The Oscars are the most prestigious awards, it features live music performances, it is jam-packed with stars, and this year, they will be honoring the James Bond film franchise. Presenters include Jack Nicholson, Kerry Washington, Dustin Hoffman, Jane Fonda, Kristen Stewart, and Jennifer Garner. And in an attempt to grab the attention of young audiences, the award show will be hosted by comedian and “Family Guy” creator Seth MacFarlane. It all sounds great, but it has its down falls. Will this really keep the viewer’s attention? Often, when an audience member’s favorite movie is not nominated, they don’t bother tuning in. The same goes for a music performer they might not be fond off, etc.
What show will you be tuning in to? Audiences are predicting that the winner in ratings will be “The Walking Dead.” As popular as the Academy Awards are, they are not very hot internationally, while “The Walking Dead” is a worldwide disease, err –phenomenon.
