The walking dead returns with record breaking season 3.

Another record return to the movie world reaching 12.3 million viewers is the sequal of horror movie Walking Dead. AMC’s The Walking Dead season 3 returned last night among the huge amount of its fans. It is a series high for the zombie apocalypse drama. Up against the Grammys, the 9 PM mid-season premiere pulled in 7.7 million viewers among Adults 18-49, a basic-cable record for a series and up 6% from the show’s previous high for its October 14 season premiere.

In total, 16.6 million viewers watched Walking Dead last night combining the 9 PM premiere and 11 PM, midnight and 2 AM encores on AMC. The series was back Sunday for the last eight episodes of its third season after a break of more than two months.

The big numbers Sunday come after a record-breaking third season so far that saw the show pull in a massive 10.9 million Live+Same Day total viewers for its October 14 premiere, which bested all other telecasts cable and broadcast. The Walking Dead’s mid-season finale on December 2 garnered 10.5 million viewers in its 9 PM time slot and 15.2 million for the entire night with encores.

The Walking Dead’s Season 3 series average in the 18-49 demo is ahead of the averages for big network shows like The Big Bang Theory, Modern Family and NCIS. Walking Dead was renewed for a fourth season late last year. Accoding to the executive producer Gale Anne Hurd of this film the season 4 will hopefully hit the screen in October 2013. Another record!!!! Lets see.
