AMC’s ‘Walking Dead’ Draws Record Finale Ratings

AMC’s “The Walking Dead” wrapped its highest-rated season yet Sunday with more monster numbers, including a series record for a finale and drawing more than four times as many young adults as the night’s top-rated broadcast entertainment series.

According to preliminary Nielsen estimates, the 90-minute season-ender of “Walking Dead” averaged an 8.2 rating in adults 18-49 and 15.8 million viewers overall — up about 3% in both categories vs. its year-ago finale. It was also up week-to-week by 17% in the demo and by 14% in total viewers.
