The Walking Dead Season 5 Has Dramatically Improved by Fixing Its ‘Woman Problem’

21 October 2014 9:49 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Ask anyone, The Walking Dead is a much better show than it used to be. Season five has started out incredibly strong, building on a solid season four under the helm of new showrunner Scott Gimple, previously responsible for writing some of the best episodes of the series. There are many reasons why the show is better now, a solidified group we know and like, a bigger budget, a setting not always stuck in one place, and so on. But there’s one thing the show has lost that to me is a larger factor than anything it’s gained as time’s gone on: the need to have an irritating, irrational, bad decision-making woman in the group at all times. The show has gone through a number of iterations of this, beginning with Carol in season one. She was grating, she was constantly rubbing everyone the wrong way and defending her abusive… »

'The Walking Dead' star Steven Yeun on if Glenn would have kept Tara's secret from Maggie

19 October 2014 7:01 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

[Spoiler Alert: Read on only if you have already watched Sunday’s episode of The Walking Dead.] Blame it on Glenn. Well, not just Glenn. But blame it on the whole group for not letting Rick go back and finish off the Terminus folks when they had the chance. As a result, Gareth is now finishing off a tasty meal consisting of Bob Stookey’s leg. But therein lies the dilemma of season 5 of The Walking Dead. How far is too far in a world now dealing almost exclusively in extremes? We chatted with the man who plays Glenn, Steven Yeun, to get his thoughts on season 5’s first two episodes, whether they were wrong to not »

Obsessed with Pop Culture: Best of the Week

18 October 2014 2:48 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

 

Departure Day: When it comes to TV, is closure important?

If you happen to follow a decent number of TV critics on Twitter, you may have noticed a minor eruption of late. A schism has emerged, prompted by accounts like The Cancellation Bear, which concerns itself solely with the topic of whether or not series are likely to survive based on current ratings patterns. That may sound perfectly innocent on its own, but quite a few admirers have expressed the notion that they refuse to dive into a series if they get the sense that it will come to a premature end, thereby robbing them of closure. This idea has, naturally, left many critics incensed: isn’t TV a medium founded on chaos, on the thrill of working within limitations and at the whims of fickle audiences? Moreover, isn’t it silly to always want tidy resolution in the context »

14 October 2014 11:01 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

When it comes to The Walking Dead, Greg Nicotero does it all: He's an executive producer, he's the mastermind behind all the zombie makeup, he sometimes appears as a zombie himself, and he has emerged as a go-to director for the AMC hit.

The Walking Dead Season 5 Premiere Outpaces Sunday Night Football With Record-Breaking Ratings

14 October 2014 7:15 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The television season is very much upon us, folks. As daylight dwindles and temperatures follow suit, fall presents the perfect window of time for networks to parade their eagerly awaited series’ both old and new. And perhaps one of the most anticipated series openers belonged to The Walking Dead, which debuted on Sunday night to record-shattering figures.

According to official numbers published by AMC, the post-apocalyptic survival show managed to pull in a staggering 17.3 million viewers — 11 million of which belonged to the 18-49 demographic — meaning the fifth series opener now holds the title for the most viewed non-sports programme on cable television.

“It’s a Dead man’s party. Who could ask for more?” Charlie Collier, AMC president said via press release. “Enormous thanks to our friends and executive producers Robert Kirkman, Scott Gimple, Greg Nicotero — who also directed last night’s terrific premiere – Gale Anne Hurd, Dave Alpert and »

'The Walking Dead' star Andrew J. West talks Gareth and those shocking Terminus flashbacks

14 October 2014 5:15 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

No doubt about it. Those guys at Terminus were bad news. How did they get that way? We learned their backstory through some flashbacks that framed The Walking Dead’s season 5 premiere. Turns out Gareth and Co. used to be some pretty righteous folks who did, in fact, want to use their railway yard as a sanctuary — until some other baddies came and took over and forced them into a new world way of thinking…and eating. We caught up with the man who plays Gareth, Andrew J. West, to get his take on the shocking premiere. (Also make sure »

'Walking Dead' Breaks Ratings Record Again

14 October 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

There's no stopping these zombies!

"The Walking Dead" returned Sunday for its fifth season with record-breaking ratings - 17.3 million viewers and an 8.7 share of advertiser-coveted 18-49 adults (that's about 11 million people).

That's 1 million total viewers more than last season's premiere and 1.7 million more than the season 4 finale. Not only that, in the demo, "The Walking Dead" even beat the NFL, both NBC's "Sunday Night Football" and Fox's overrun.

The continued growth made AMC's decision to renew the show for a sixth a no-brainer (insert zombie joke here).

"It's a Dead man's party. Who could ask for more?" said AMC president Charlie Collie in a statement. "Enormous thanks to our friends and executive producers Robert Kirkman, Scott Gimple, Greg Nicotero - who also directed last night's terrific premiere - Gale Anne Hurd, Dave Alpert and Tom Luse and all of their fellow producers, cast and crew for everything they do to »

'Walking Dead' Season 5 Premiere Breaks Series Ratings Record

13 October 2014 3:56 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The Season 5 premiere of AMC's The Walking Dead delivered the highest ratings in series history. The episode was watched by 17.3 million viewers and 11 million adults aged 18-49, increases of 7% and 6%, respectively, over the Season 4 premiere, the previous record-holder. The Walking Dead continues to be the #1 show on television among adults 18-49. Last night's episode outperformed everything else on television in this key demographic, including Sunday Night Football, by over 2.5 million adults 18-49. With time-shifted playback, the Season 5 premiere should exceed 22 million viewers.

Here's what AMC president Charlie Collier had to say about the record-breaking ratings in a statement.

Walking Dead Mystery Villain Revealed

13 October 2014 2:01 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

For those of you Walking Dead fans hoping that the mystery villain we were introduced to in the Season 5 premiere was Negan from the comics, you should know that it's not. That was my first thought while watching the episode, though. Spoilers ahead.

If you watched the episode then you know it gave us a little background information on the leader of the group, Gareth, residing at Camp Cannibal Terminus. There's a lot more to this character than we initially realized. Yes, these guys were a group of evil assholes, but apparently they weren't always that way.

It was revealed in some flashback scenes that Gareth and his people did in fact initially envision Terminus as a "Sanctuary for All." But after taking in a group who tortured and murdered their people, they took back Terminus and decided to not trust any newcomers and do whatever it takes to protect themselves, »

'Walking Dead' Season 5 premiere sets AMC records

13 October 2014 1:59 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

America's appetite for brains, or at least our appetite for watching the living dead and their appetite for brains, remains unabated. AMC's "The Walking Dead" returned on Sunday (October 12) night and set new highs for both the series and, by logical extension, for the network. The fifth season premiere for "Walking Dead" drew 17.3 million viewers, including 11 million viewers in the 18-49 demographic. That was up 7 percent and 6 percent respectively from last October's premiere, which represented the previous high. As you would guess if you looked at this morning's network TV rating, that made "Walking Dead" Sunday's top show in the 18-49 demographic, topping Sunday Night football by 2.5 million viewers in that age range. AMC brass had their usual pun-heavy reaction to the good news. "It’s a Dead man’s party. Who could ask for more?" blurbs Charlie Collier, AMC president.

The Walking Dead Returns With Record High Ratings For Season Five Premiere

13 October 2014 1:45 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

The Walking Dead returned to AMC last night with arguably its most brutal and violent episode to date. A sixth season was announced ahead of the season five premiere and you can't blame the cable network for being confident with ratings like these. The record setting numbers saw an average audience of 17.3 million watch the episode with a 7.7 rating in adults 18-49. The season four premiere had 16.11 million viewers and these numbers completely decimate everything from Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. to Gotham and The Flash. "It's a Dead man's party. Who could ask for more?" said Charlie Collier, AMC president said in a statment today.

The Walking Dead season 5 episode 1 review: No Sanctuary

12 October 2014 10:47 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The Walking Dead's season 5 opener will be hard to top, says Ron. Here's his review of No Sanctuary...

This review contains spoilers.

5.1 No Sanctuary

When you examine The Walking Dead as a series, there are only three characters who feel like they are definitely not killable: Rick, Carl, and Daryl. Rick and Carl are the basis of the show; Daryl is the break-out character whose death would cause fan riots. Eventually I believe Michonne will be up there with them, but for now, everyone else is expendable. Granted, Abraham, Rosita, and Eugene are too new to die right away, and they're clearly going to become the plot drivers for this season, but there are enough other characters on the show—including my beloved Carol—who could potentially be zombie chow. Or, in this case, crazy cannibal chow.

That's probably the most effective thing in No Sanctuary. I think we all know that Rick, »
