We already know The Walking Dead's a smash-hit in America for AMC (drawing a record-breakng 5.3m for the premiere), and success continues in the UK. FX have just released details of the British premiere's popularity, where it attracted 736,000 viewers on 5 November, which increases to 1m when you include the week's repeat airings.
Jason Thorp, Managing Director of Fox International Channels UK:
"In an industry with fierce competition and a growing number of free-to-air channels, you need stand out content to reach a million viewers with a debuting show. The Walking Dead's performance is equal to our highest rated programmes NCIS, Dexter and True Blood. I can say with confidence that FX, despite being tucked away down the EPG has yet again stepped up to the plate as the destination for great original drama."
