AMC’s “The Walking Dead” season four finale last night drew its second best ratings ever and best season finale numbers at 15.7 million last night.
Of those, 10.2 million were 18-49 year olds. That level of younger viewers hasn’t been seen by any non-football regular series since “American Idol” in its heyday.
The “Talking Dead” after show with Andrew Lincoln drew another 7.3 million, a series record.
The show averaged 13.3 million viewers, up 24 percent over season three.
The drama will be shooting again soon for season five. For the first time since season one, the show shot in downtown Atlanta. The producers used Atlanta Motor Shop in Mechanicsville as Terminus, the place that doesn’t appear to be a sanctuary, as they are promoting, but a death sentence. According to Walking Dead Locations, it’s private property owned by Norfolk Southern railroad so wandering in is not recommended.
