We will have some time to recover after the shocking midseason finale of The Walking Dead. The show closed the second half of season 4 with a dramatic and bloody carnage last Sunday: the prison was set on fire under The Governor's attack and main characters lost their lives in the battle. These horrifying events attracted a lot of viewers' attention this weekend.
According to Deadline, no less than 12.1 million viewers tuned in to watch the twists of the episode, titled Too Far Gone. Reportedly it was a midseason finale record for AMC's zombie apocalypse drama that experienced a huge increase from the the 10.5 million total viewers of last year. Overall, season 4 so far is 29% higher up than the first half of season 3.
The complete success is not so surprising however: the show has even beat the NBC's NFL Sunday Night Football a couple of times in the key audience demographics throughout the year.
The second half of Season 4 is going to air February 9, 2014.
Will you survive the holidays without The Walking Dead?
