New York -- Duck callers, pawn shop operators and zombies offer the latest evidence of how the television world has expanded.
CBS was the most popular television last week with six of its programs reaching season highs in ratings: "2 Broke Girls," "Mike & Molly," "Hawaii Five-0," "Criminal Minds," "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" and "The Amazing Race.
Yet it was also a big week for some cable networks as the big broadcasters head toward their holiday season hibernation.
The Tru TV network scored the highest ratings in the network's history with the sixth season premiere of "Hardcore Pawn," seen by 3.1 million people last Tuesday, the Nielsen company said. Spike TV also achieved a high-water mark, the network's highest-rated special, for its Eddie Murphy comedy show.
AMC said the Sunday night audience for "Walking Dead" at 10 p.m. Eastern was 10.5 million. Add in the viewers from the two other showings of that episode Sunday, »
