'The Walking Dead' midseason premiere draws 8.1M viewers

Apparently we still love zombies.AMC's zombie drama, "The Walking Dead," returned last night after a winter hiatus and, according to a release from the cable network the show drew the highest viewership for a drama in basic cable history -- 8.1 million viewers, up by almost a million from it's Oct. 16 Season 2 premiere episode. According to AMC, that puts the midseason premiere 12 percent ahead of its fall counterpart. Not a bad number considering that the show was up against a Grammy Awards telecast that drew its second biggest ratings ever. We also don't yet have DVR ratings and the show tends to be one that has a loyal DVR following."Comic Book Men," the new docu-reality show about Kevin Smith's New Jersey comic book store, also drew respectable numbers with 2 million viewers.... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2012/02/the-walking-dead-midseason-premiere-draws-81m-viewers.html

'The Walking Dead': 'Triggerfinger' sneak peek

Shane (Jon Bernthal) is at war with zombies, most of the rest of his fellow zombie dodgers and, increasingly, himself.In a new preview clip from the upcoming Feb. 19 episode of "The Walking Dead," "Triggerfinger," Shane argues with Andrea (Laurie Holden) about the usual: His relationship (or lack thereof) with Lori (Sarah Wayne Callies) and his hotheadedness. Well, to be fair, they aren't so much arguing. It's more like Andrea is telling Shane what's wrong with him and he's responding by telling her she's just as much of an outcast as him."I'll always be the odd one out," he says, "Same as you." Another interesting nugget: Shane and Andrea also talk about sending "this kid" on his merry way. Apparently "this kid" is someone who Andrea is concerned will "find his people" and come back to wage war. We can't wait to meet him.... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2012/02/the-walking-dead-triggerfinger-sneak-peek.html
