Which show premiere has the highest rating in the cable channel's history?
AMC's "Fear the Walking Dead" had a record total viewers and all key Nielsen Live+3 ratings averaging 11.2 million viewer, 7.2 million of which were in the 25-54 age group.
"When we set out to launch a companion series to the #1 show on television, there were truly many things to fear, beyond 'Fear" itself," said Charlie Collier, president of AMC, Sundance TV and AMC Studios. "To see this show stand alone, break through and set records as a unique piece of storytelling is very gratifying and a tribute to great creative talent."
Kudos to FTWD and we're "walking" forward to the next season.
