AMC's 'Fear the Walking Dead' Debuts To Record Cable Audience

Being a 'Walking Dead' spin-off, we knew it was going to be big but the premiere of 'Fear the Walking Dead' blew past expectations with a record cable audience.

Sunday's 90-minute series premiere made debuted to 10.1 million viewers to become the most-watched series debut in cable TV history for total viewers and all key demographics.

AMC says the episode delivered 6.3 million adults in the key 18-to-49 demo coveted by advertisers. In fact, even the preview special that aired before the series managed to snag 4.2 million viewers overall.

This almost guarantees that 'Fear the Walking Dead', which is only slated for six episodes this year, will return for a full season next year.

The original 'The Walking Dead' debuted to 5.35 million total viewers way back in October 31, 2010. However, it's steadily increased viewership since then and the season five finale drew 15.8 million viewers this March.
