BIG ratings for 'The Walking Dead'

How much does America love zombies? Like, a steaming gut-bucketful. AMC's season finale of The Walking Zombie Dead Sunday night pulled in six million viewers, a staggering number for basic cable that doesn't even include the 2.1 million extra who tuned in for the 11 p.m. rerun. The numbers are even more impressive in the 18-to-49 age demo. Over the six-episode season, The Walking Dead had an average demo audience of 3.5 million, the biggest of any basic-cable drama ever. Those stinking corpses will be back for a second season -- 13 episodes this time -- next Halloween.
