Walking Dead Midseason Finale Attracts 6.6 Million Viewers

by  in Comic News, TV News Comment

Sunday’s midseason finale of The Walking Dead performed solidly for AMC, delivering 6.6 million viewers, Inside TV reports.

That’s down from the series-high 7.3 million who tuned in for the Season 2 premiere, and still ahead of the first season, which at its height attracted 6 million viewers. Story-wise this week’s episode, “Pretty Much Dead Already,” rates among the strongest of what’s been a slow-moving and frustrating season.

With that, the acclaimed drama goes on hiatus, returning Feb. 12 with “Nebraska,” the first of the final six episodes of the season. Whether those 6 million viewers will return with it of course remains to be seen.
