If there was any doubt whether or not The Walking Dead’s companion series Fear the Walking Dead will be a hit – there are no more doubters after last night. AMC’s premiere of Fear the Walking Dead officially set the record for the number one series premiere of all time!
The 90-minute episode brought in 10.1 million live and same-day viewers. Charlie Collier, President of AMC, made the following statement:
“Thank you and congratulations to Robert Kirkman, Dave Erikson, the brilliant executive producers and the entire cast and crew of Fear the Walking Dead. It is increasingly difficult to evaluate a show’s success on night one. However, we are releasing these live/same day ratings because Fear the Walking Dead delivered record-breaking numbers that are all the the more special in this era of time-shifted viewing and audience fragmentation. To have a companion series to the #1 show on television driving communal, urgent viewing, social activity and pop cultural relevance of this magnitude is truly differentiating. Of course none of it is possible without the fans, whose passion leads to these remarkable results.”
