Have You Seen The
Insane Ratings For
THE WALKING DEAD??

Published at: Oct. 16, 2013, 1 a.m. CST

The final ratings for Sunday arrived Tuesday afternoon.

It turns out “Walking Dead” hit an 8.2 in adults 18-49.

When was the last time a scripted hour of TV hit an 8.2? I can’t remember.

For context, see how it ranks against the other top current series; even blockbusters like “Big Bang Theory,” “The Voice” and “Modern Family” don’t come close:
