Apr. 1, 2013by: Ryan Miller

Season 3 of THE WALKING DEAD has come to an end with the show's season finale airing just last night. The finale pulled in record breaking numbers reaching its largest audience yet with 12.4 million viewers and 8.1 million adults 18-49, making AMC's zombie series the number one program for the night and week for total viewers and in the demo.

The series' season average is also number one for the broadcast season for adults 18-49 for all of television out-delivering everything including "The Big Bang Theory," "The Voice," "Game of Thrones," "Modern Family," and almost doubling "The Bible." With Live plus 3, THE WALKING DEAD typically adds at least an additional 3 million viewers.

"Two words: Grateful. Dead. It's a joy that we get to work with such tremendous talent to make 'The Walking Dead' and 'Talking Dead' come to life for audiences that continue to engage and grow," said Charlie Collier, AMC's president. "In just three seasons, 'The Walking Dead' has become a pop-culture phenomenon, entertaining millions of passionate viewers and obliterating traditional lines between cable and broadcast television."

Not bad AMC, not bad!

Whether you find yourself a fan of THE WALKING DEAD or not, you've got to appreciate the fact that a television series in the horror genre can pull such numbers. It has really opened a lot of doors for horror on the small screen and for that I couldn't be happier. Now it's time to catch up on BATES MOTEL and get out the dinner plates for HANNIBAL which is just around the corner.

Meh

The season started out great but the finale was sort of a popcorn fart in comparison. Just when we thought they had the pacing issues and kinks worked out you wonder what the heck is going on. I expected more and it left me shrugging my shoulders rather than biting my nails. Until next season, if you love or loathe zombies as much as I do, be sure to check out 20 of the Greatest Zombie Movies of All Time reviewed at [link] with some really cool zombie artwork!

Why is Game of Thrones on that list of shows Walking Dead did better than? GoT is an HBO show, those numbers will always be lower than basic cable or national networks. Premium cable channels are usually never part of these rating wars because they follow a completely different business plan.
