'The Walking Dead' Season 4 delivers series best finale ratings

the-walking-dead-season-4-finale-ratings-amc.jpgAMC should be very happy with the success of "The Walking Dead." The Season 4 finale, "A," delivered the show's best finale ratings, with 15.7 million people tuning in. Of that number, 10.2 million were adults ages 18-49.

Sunda (March 30) was also a good night for the season finale of "Talking Dead," which brought in 7.3 million viewers and 4.7 million adults 18-49. It makes sense that so many viewers stuck around after "The Walking Dead's" cliffhanger finale, as showrunner Scott Gimple gave some teases of what fans should expect in Season 5

Following "Talking Dead," the Season 3 finale of "Comic Book Men" was watched by 1.1 million viewers, and 715,000 adults 18-49.

While "A" was the best performance for a season finale of "TWD," it fell just short of an all-time record for the show. The current series high for "The Walking Dead" was the 16.1 million viewers it brought in for its Season 4 premiere. Of those, 10.4 million fell in the 18-49 demo, which puts it on par with the finale. 

Considering the Season 3 finale brought in 12.4 million and 8.1 million adults 18-49, it stands to reason that Season 5's premiere will break the show's ratings record again. "The Walking Dead" Season 5 is expected to return in October 2014.
