(Undated) — Four seasons later “The Walking Dead” is still very much alive with viewers. AMC’s zombie drama drew 15-point-seven-million viewers to Sunday’s Season Four finale, making it the highest-rated finale in the show’s history. It capped a stellar season for the series, which averaged 13-point-three-million viewers over 16 episodes. According to industry analysts, “The Walking Dead” had the highest audience of any non-sports show on broadcast or cable TV this season in the 18-to-49 demographic.
Sunday night’s season ender found series lead Andrew Lincoln, as Rick Grimes, in the midst of another crisis involving the human survivors of the show’s zombie apocalypse. “The Walking Dead’s” talk show companion “The Talking Dead” also held its own with some audience spillover from the finale. The post-finale analysis drew a reported seven-point-three-million viewers.
