Wow! Everyone loves zombies, but THIS is unheard of!

The second season of AMC's The Walking Dead premiered Sunday night with a total of 7.3 million total viewers, which broke the almost ten year record for the strongest telecast of a drama in basic cable history!

Not only that, but it's a 38% increase in total viewership over the zombie-fest's first season!

According to AMC President Charlie Collier:

"The Walking Dead is one of those rare television programs that reaches both a core genre fan as well as broad audiences simply looking for a great, character-based story. We're so proud of and greatful for the amazing team on both sides of the camera who work so hard and is so committed to making this a unique programming event. That The Walking Dead is now the most-watched drama in the history of basic cable is staggering, just like our zombies."

Ha! Oh, so PUNNY!

Congratulations on a strong start to the new year, guys! Well done!

Let's see if it holds up!
