“The Walking Dead” is off to a great start with its prime time mid-season debut, according to a Feb. 11 Los Angeles Times report. AMC’s hit zombie drama nabbed the largest television audience in the history of the series during its 9 p.m. Feb. 10 premiere of the rest of the third season.
It scored a record 12.3 million viewers, which is a huge jump from its 10.9 million viewers during its Oct. 14 season debut.
According to the Los Angeles Times, the premiere episode’s “18-49 audience of 6.8 million viewers outdistanced several popular network series, including “Modern Family,” “The Big Bang Theory”, “Two and a Half Men,” and "NCIS.”
“When you look at numbers like this, the first thing that comes to mind is how grateful we are to the fans of this show,” said AMC President Charlie Collier. “They embrace 'The Walking Dead' in a way that we wanted to believe was possible but we never take for granted.”
Fans chose zombies over the 2013 Grammy Awards.
