Walking dead season 3

Wow!

'The Walking Dead' returns to jaw-dropping record ratings

Sunday night’s midseason return of the AMC zombie drama delivered 12.3 million viewers and a 6.1 adults 18-49 rating — its biggest yet in both measurements.

And that was against The Grammys.

To give you an idea of how stunning this performance is, ABC’s Once Upon a Time sank to a series low 2.2 in the adult demo last night and Fox’s Family Guy went down to a 2.4 — and those are the broadcast shows that performed the best against the music awards show.

Put another way: Last Thursday’s American Idol had 13.3 million viewers and a 4.1 rating and Wednesday’s edition had 14.3 million and a 4.6 rating. So in the all-important adult demo — if not total viewers — The Walking Dead beat last week’s American Idol telecasts. In fact, The Walking Dead‘s average for its current third season in the demo is higher than top broadcast shows like Modern Family, The Big Bang Theory and NCIS. And among cable, there’s no comparison — last night’s episode was the biggest adult demo number ever for a basic cable series.

That's pretty cool.

To people wondering which direction this show is going and how long it will be around...I am expecting at least 7 seasons total (which isn't hard to imagine. Just 4 more seasons).

As far as the baby dying, it will happen, but it will be an off-screen, assumed death. Whoever has her during "that moment" will die, a surviving member will see it and report it back to the group. That's it. I doubt you see much more...but honestly, I wouldn't be surprised. The cast did say during the filming that they said multiple times "they're going to let us do THAT?!".

I think also think it will happen as a 2 person death... whomever has the baby at the time, and the baby... during the big assault on the prison, via either walkers, or gunfire

Agree... and I think that's what's gong to push Rick completely over the edge to insanity... so that someone (Michonne imo) can bring him back.

I wouldnt be surprised if everyone ends up dying except the baby and Carl by the end of the series. End the show with a passing of the torch type of thing..Kirkman has talked about looking forward to seeing Carl older late in the show.

does Carl need to age by like 5 years? and any chance soon we see the guy and his son who first helped Rick the rest of this season?

What worries me is there's going to be a 3rd different guy calling the shots now.

Mazzarra has said he's stepping down if he hasn't already.

If you don't mind spoilers

In the comics you do. I think I read somewhere that Lennie James would definitely be back at some point in the show

Not gonna happen... I don't see any way/point that the baby makes it out of season 3.

its possible but I see no reason to do it right now. The show isnt worried about sticking with the comic and all though most of us know what happens to the baby the general audience may not be up to watching a baby die even if its a off camera thing.

Yeah I've told y'all 1 million times now Kirkman said the show isn't going to be a parallel, linear story if the comic. Kirkman said this himself. Where would the fun be in watching the show? Daryl/Merle are strictly TV characters.

Also - to the person who asked about Morgan from episode 1:

has been seen on set and will make an appearnce. A quick appearnce. He comes back is crazy and gets bit. Rick puts him down. 1-2 episodes
