The Walking Dead returned from its mid-season break this week. Sunday’s new episode drew in 15.8 million viewers, which is just a little shy of the 16.1 million who tuned into the fall premiere. The episode even outperformed The Winter Olympic in the coveted 18-49 Demographic. Andrew Lincoln stars as the anti-hero Rick Grimes on this popular series.
