Fear The Walking Dead Breaks US TV Viewing Records

Fear The Walking Dead is emulating the record-breaking viewing figures of its parent show, The Walking Dead, with a record-breaking debut of it own. The show’s premiere episode on AMC last Sunday averaged 10.1 million viewers – a stunning figure for a cable channel and a result the major networks would be happy with – and that’s before catch-up figures have been added in.


That makes Fear The Walking Dead the most watched launch in cable history, beating the previous record – Breaking Bad spin-off Better Call Saul’s 6.88 million last February – by a huge margin. And Better Call Saul was helped by following on from an episode of – guess what? – The Walking Dead.

The Walking Dead itself had held the debut record of 5.35 million until Better Call Saul beat it. The Walking Dead season five averaged 14.4 million viewers per episode reaching an all-time high of 15.8 million.

AMC has already ordered a second season of Fear The Walking Dead to follow on from the first six-part mini-series. They won’t be regretting that decision.
