The 40th Annual People's Choice Awards - Red Carpet

The Walking Dead has steadily become one of the most talked about television shows of 2014.  Last season it averaged over 13 million viewers, which is comparable to many of the most popular shows on basic network television.  Twitter was abuzz a few days ago with claims that Norman Reedus who plays Daryl Dixon, had died in a car crash.  The actor spent the next few days updating his Twitter page to alert fans that he was very much alive.  That rumor may not have been true, but take a look at these 10 facts you may not know about The Walking Dead.

1. Over four seasons of The Walking Dead, many walkers have been taken out.  Rick has made a total of 127 kills, 70 of those have been made with his Colt Python.  Daryl has killed 98, 60 of which were from his Horton Scout 125 Crossbow.  Michonne has a total of 45 kills, Glenn has 31, Maggie has 25, Tyreese has 40 (all with his hammer) and Carl has 41.  These numbers are from March 9, 2014 so there have been three additional episodes that have aired with more death scenes.
