The 10 Most Watched Walking Dead Episodes of all Time

Hyundai Presents The Walking Dead: A Decade Of Dead

Most people probably do not remember what they were doing on Halloween night in 2010. That night 5.35 million people tuned in to AMC to check out a new television show about zombies.  The show I am talking about is The Walking Dead and has been a huge success for the cable network. The drama/horror series has built a massive cult audience with an average of 13.33 million viewers tuning into season 4. Season 5 will premiere this October and is expected to draw similar or hopefully even more numbers. Here are the five highest rated episodes of the television show that everyone is talking about.

10. Episode 4.14 “The Grove”. March 16, 2014, 12.87 million viewers

The tenth most watched episode is “The Grove,” which is the thirteenth episode in season 4.  It was watched by 12.87 million viewers. Tyreese, Carol, and Mika find an abandoned house in the woods on their way to Terminus.  Tyreese and Carol both think this is a better place to settle until an attack by the walkers changes their minds.  Fun Fact: The incomplete puzzle seen on the dining room table towards the end of the episode is a photograph of Carol’s daughter Sophia, who passed away years earlier.
