Zombies rule: AMC has just renewed The Walking Dead for a third season.

The decision comes after only two episodes have aired of season two, but it’s still no surprise — the show’s premiere had more adults 18-49 than any other drama in basic cable history. (And for once, AMC has managed to renew a show without a protracted hand-wringing negotiation!).

Ratings for Sunday’s second episode: 6.7 million total viewers, 4.5 million adults 18-49. Including repeats, the full count climbs to 8.8 million viewers. That’s down 8 percent from the premiere (and down 20 percent if you include the repeats), but hell, at these levels TWD can still give viewers away like Halloween candy.

Hmm, this is trending poorly for the show, they got renewed after 1 ep last year, in a few more years we may need to wait halfway through a season before we get renewal.... :lol:

I started watching Season 3 on Netflix, I'm a ways into it. I like the show, I just don't follow it on television so I'm not sure what's going on until it hits Netflix.

I love horror and zombie movies. But this show has never been that great. There are flashes that I really enjoy, but some of the main characters really get on my nerves.

,,

Last night's episode only had 3 characters in it and was a tease about removing 1 or more of the characters that I can't stand. I realized that it was the most excited I have been during the show, even though I knew they didn't have the balls to actually do it.

,,

I am looking forward to the new show that isn't saddled with the comic story.

I read the first 10-12 graphic novels.

,,

There's a prison in the comic and I really liked that story. There's a prison in the TV show and it didn't hit the right notes for me.

,,

I guess I just wish the show focused on some characters/actors than others. I think that the 2 best characters on the show have already been killed.

I have to side with you Chosen on the character part. Sometimes I just think the characters are just as dumb as the zombies. I've been sitting there thinking "Someone please... just shoot him/her."

,,

Oh, and the sheriff guy has the most scariest crying face I've ever seen on a man. I mean... damn.

I want to go back to my frustration over the first episode this year. In that episode we have a messed up scenario where we know that things are going to turn out ok just because of what characters are in the episode. They set this episode up beautifully early in the season. Because these aren't main characters on the show and comic the writers are free to go into darker concepts.

,,

The back half of this season has gotten much better for me. Because they are focusing on smaller groups per episode they can actually have some intrapersonal conflict that doesn't involve Rick telling people how they should behave.

,,

The episode with Daryl & Beth was the most tense episode for me in a long time. It had a happy moment in it so that you knew that when things went back to reality it would be that much harsher.

,,

I thought that the first episode of the season was interesting and was a good setup for the season. But then by the second episode I felt like they were just doing something to retcon all the new people in the show. Looking back the only value that I can see in those episodes are the elements that built into last nights show.

,,

I thought that the character conflict was really good in this episode. By the end I was in agreement that whatever was supposed to happen will happen. The writers had earned it.

I googled "The Walking Dead" and the top news link asked the question of "Did the show go too far?" I think it is amazing that there is a zombie TV show with some actual production value. But for me the show should have 1 episode every season where people respond with that question, especially in conjunction with the quality of this episode.
