War! Guns! Zombies! Weird Rick Grimes hair! Things heated up big time in the last 10 minutes of Sunday’s episode of The Walking Dead, and if you have yet to watch the episode, you really should stop reading right now.

'The Walking Dead' returns to jaw-dropping record ratings

Walking-Dead_510x317.jpg

The Walking Dead has done it again.

Another. ANOTHER. Series-high rating.

Sunday night’s midseason return of the AMC zombie drama delivered 12.3 million viewers and a 6.1 adults 18-49 rating — its biggest yet in both measurements.

And that was against The Grammys.

To give you an idea of how stunning this performance is, ABC’s Once Upon a Time sank to a series low 2.2 in the adult demo last night and Fox’s Family Guy went down to a 2.4 — and those are the broadcast shows that performed the best against the music awards show.

Put another way: Last Thursday’s American Idol had 13.3 million viewers and a 4.1 rating and Wednesday’s edition had 14.3 million and a 4.6 rating. So in the all-important adult demo — if not total viewers — The Walking Dead beat last week’s American Idol telecasts. In fact, The Walking Dead‘s average for its current third season in the demo is higher than top broadcast shows like Modern Family, The Big Bang Theory and NCIS. And among cable, there’s no comparison — last night’s episode was the biggest adult demo number ever for a basic cable series.

Oh, and if you include The Walking Dead‘s encore telecast, the show’s viewership rises to 16.6 million for the night. READ FULL STORY

'The Walking Dead': Robert Kirkman on tonight's midseason premiere and the unexpected return of [SPOILER]

There was an abundance of seemingly crazy decisions in this week’s episode of AMC’s back-from-winter-break zombie show, The Walking Dead. Daryl (Norman Reedus) opted to head off into the woods with his nutjob brother Merle (Michael Rooker) while Andrea (Laurie Holden) made an impassioned speech in support of life at Woodbury, despite its leader’s fondness for utilizing fish tank-dwelling decapitated zombie heads as decorative furnishings. But by the end of the episode it was clear that the man really going off his rocker was Andrew Lincoln’s increasingly troubled and hallucination-prone Rick.

'The Walking Dead': Sunday's surprise visitor speaks! And reveals how that last scene almost went down

Another Walking Dead episode, another shocker — this one coming in the final minutes of the show. If you’ve already watched Sunday’s episode, read on for more from the surprise visitor herself! [SPOILER ALERT: Stop reading immediately unless you have already watched Sunday’s episode of The Walking Dead.]

Apparently, as hard as producers try to kill Sarah Wayne Callies off on dramas set in prisons, the woman keeps finding a way back! It stared on Prison Break, where her character of Sara Tancredi was offed, but then somehow turned up alive later anyway. And sure enough, now Lori Grimes is back from the dead as well! Okay, that’s not entirely accurate. But Callies did indeed return in the final moments of Sunday’s episode of The Walking Dead as Rick’s hallucination of Lori, which is close enough. (Details, details.) Just as Rick appeared ready to allow Tyrese and his buddies to join the survivors in the prison, he looked up to see a haunting vision of Lori in her wedding dress — causing the group’s leader to completely lose it. I spoke to showrunner Glenn Mazzara who explained the significance behind the scene. But I also chatted with the actress herself. The always candid Callies revealed the joys and pains of going back on set, an early concept for the scene that we did not see, and what it was like to play Rick Grimes’ twisted subconscious.

The Walking Dead returned Sunday night. It began with a firefight and ended with…well, if you haven’t seen it yet then you might want to consider checking back later after you have. [SPOILER ALERT: Read on only if you have already watched Sunday’s episode of The Walking Dead.]

After freeing both Daryl and Merle from the clutches of the Governor, Rick and Co. headed back for the prison. But when the group told Daryl that his brother was not welcome to join them, the two Dixon brothers took off on their own. And Rick’s problems were just beginning. While weighing a decision whether to let a new group led by Tyrese stay at the prison with them, Rick had another hallucination — this one of his deceased wife Lori. I chatted with showrunner Glen Mazzara about the meaning behind the vision, the surprise return of Sarah Wayne Callies (who also talked all about the scene with me right here), and whether we’ll be seeing less of the Dixon brothers for a while.

'Walking Dead' actor joins 'Mythbusters' zombie episode -- EXCLUSIVE

The Mythbusters gang is going to get some help testing zombie myths from one badass destroyer of the undead.

Walking Dead actor Michael Rooker — Merle Dixon himself — is going to guest star on the Discovery Channel hit.

That’s all the info we have right now on the episode. Well, almost all — we know one of the myths being tested is attempting to figure out which weapon is really best for killing a horde of the undead (Merle would presumably opt for a bayonet) and that the show recently put out an all points bulletin for 300 volunteers to play zombies to help shoot the episode (which will shoot tomorrow, along with Rooker lending a hand  … ahem). The episode will air as part of the show’s upcoming 10th season.

'The Walking Dead': Merle bashes a zombie's face off and more EXCLUSIVE PHOTOS

Things looked bleak for Merle Dixon on The Walking Dead’s midseason finale cliffhanger. The Governor had reunited Merle with his long lost brother Daryl and appeared ready to kill them both. But if one of these exclusive pictures from the show’s return episode on Sunday, Feb. 10 on AMC is to believed, it looks like Merle may make it out of the encounter alive, only to have an up close and personal encounter with another dangerous foe — an encounter that ends with said foe missing a face. But before we can get to that gnarly picture (seriously, don’t view after eating lunch) here are some other revealing shots from the next episode of The Walking Dead. READ FULL STORY

'The Walking Dead': Glen Mazzara teases what's next for the survivors and says a 'major character' from the comic to appear soon

The midseason Walking Dead finale left us with many questions: Are the Dixon brothers done for? Has Rick lost his marbles? And how will new addition Tyrese fit into the equation? So with the show returning Sunday, Feb. 10 on AMC, we sought out showrunner Glen Mazzara (who will be leaving the drama after this season) for answers as to what to expect in the season’s last eight episodes. In the following Q&A, Mazzara promises a “major personal crisis” for Rick, a conflicted Daryl, and a vengeful Glenn. He also sheds some light on what we can expect from Tyrese, reveals another character from the comic will soon be making the leap from page to screen, and hints that there may be more death on the horizon.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: So when we last left off, Rick and company came into Woodbury and got Glenn and Maggie out. So I assume that’s it between them and the Governor. All water under the bridge, right?
GLEN MAZZARA: Yeah, I think they buy a house together. It’s very nice. And then they pick out curtains.

EW: What can you say about this brewing confrontation between the two sides?
MAZZARA: One of the things I’m excited about is we’re on the path for this showdown, and the Governor and Rick have still not seen each other as we went through those first eight episodes. They know about each other and each one realizes that the other guy can threaten everything that he has spent the past year building. And the Governor is certainly a big threat to Rick and can destroy his entire group, and the Governor sees Rick as a threat that can destroy all of his plans by showing that he was not the most powerful force in this world — that he was unable to protect Woodbury. Rick and Michonne and the group came in and sucker-punched him. So both guys now have a vendetta against each other. READ FULL STORY

Kurt Sutter disses AMC for departing 'Walking Dead' showrunner

There’s nothing better than a loyal friend (or two) to help fight your battles. On Friday, Sons of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter and Last Resort creator Shawn Ryan turned to Twitter to show their disdain for AMC and the sudden exit of their pal Glen Mazzara as showrunner of The Walking Dead.

Sutter, who has a tendency to let his strong feelings known via social media, took the first shot, calling AMC suits “small-minded” and ‘bottom-line thinkers who have no appreciation or gratitude for the effort of its creative personnel.” (Sutter, like Ryan, worked with Mazzara on The Shield.) “Time and time again we see events like what happened today with Glen Mazzara. They continue to disrespect writers, shi– on their audience and bury their network.”

Norman Reedus and Michael Rooker bro down on the cover of 'The Walking Dead, The Official Magazine' issue #3 -- EXCLUSIVE

The recent midseason finale of The Walking Dead finally saw Daryl and Merle Dixon reunited shortly before the closing credits. It’s almost like the producers deliberately left fans wanting more!!! (Of course, as Walking Dead exec producer Robert Kirkman told yours truly, that was indeed their dastardly plan all along).
