On AMC, the 'Dead' Walk Hard

It seems like AMC's The Walking Dead is showing no signs of stopping.

Mediaweek reports that last Sunday's episode -- the fifth in the six-episode first season -- scored 5.56 million viewers and hit it off with the 18-49 demographic to the tune of 3.71 million viewers.

That's a lot of eyes on the The Walking Dead, which Mediaweek also claims averages 5.09 million total viewers, more than the current season of Mad Men and Breaking Bad.

When the first season concludes this week, fans will be happy to know that AMC has already ordered a 13-episode second season.

It's not the zombies but the wait for new episodes that will kill us.
