'Fear the Walking Dead' beats CBS, NBC, ABC & Fox

Fear The Walking Dead
The show gets of to an excellent start beating
all four "major" networks in prime time

Sunday night’s special 90-minute series premiere of “Fear the Walking Dead” made television history, delivering 10.1 million live/same day viewers and becoming the #1 series premiere in cable television history for total viewers and all key demos. 

The episode delivered 6.3 million adults 18-49. In that coveted demographic, AMC now is home to three of the top five cable series premieres of all time in live/same day viewing – “Fear the Walking Dead” at #1 (2015), “Better Call Saul” at #2 (2015) and “The Walking Dead” at #5 (2010) – a remarkable accomplishment so far into the post-DVR era. 

A “Talking Dead” Season 6 Preview Special that preceded the “Fear” premiere last night delivered 4.2 million viewers, and 2.5 million adults 18-49.

(TV by the numbers)  and also (Network ratings)

The best damn show on TV just keeps getting better

Zombies Forever
The spin off Fear the Walking Dead spent most of the series opening setting up characters.  Time will tell, but we may have a huge hit.
