The brand new show Fear the Walking Dead, a prequel to The Walking Dead, premiered last night on the AMC channel to the highest ratings of any cable TV show ever! According to an article published today at EW.com, AMC said that the premiere of Fear had 10.1 million viewers. The Walking Dead premiered with 5.4 million viewers in 2010!
I had heard about the new prequel but I had no idea what it was actually going to be about. I was king of wondering how a spin-off of the amazing Walking Dead would even fare. But apparently it was the most tuned-in premiere in cable TV history, which says a lot. Reading up on the premise of Fear, about a Los Angeles family at the beginning of the zombie apocalypse, does actually sound like it will have a very action-packed story line.
Did you guys watch the premiere last night? What did you think? Let us know in the "Comments" section below! I'm definitely interested in checking it out when I get a chance!
