Viewers cannot stop feasting on The Walking Dead as the season 4 finale nabbed 15.7 million viewers, with 10.2 million of them coming in that coveted 18-49 demo. Both of those marks shatter the previous finale records for the show, which were set with 2013′s season 3 ender, which scored 12.4 million total viewers and 8.1 million in the 18-49 range. However, the finale just missed becoming the most-watched episode in the series’ history, falling short of the 16.1 million that took in the season 4 premiere, 10.4 million of which were ages 18-49.
But there were other records to be had. The Chris Hardwick-hosted Walking Dead after-show, Talking Dead, scored a series record 7.3 million viewers, 4.7 million of which were in the 18-49 demo. So all around pretty great news for AMC. Why, even Comic Book Men took in over a million viewers. COMIC BOOK MEN!!!
