Yes, in perhaps unsurprising news, The Walking Dead’s seventh season premiere this past weekend has reported gangbuster ratings—a total of 17 million viewers tuned in. This is actually not a record for the series (season five‘s premiere garnered 17.29 million viewers), but enough to routinely thump everything else that was on TV on Sunday. It’s a rather impressive number for the show, and proof that even after seven years the series has the capacity to command feverish attention, but also kind of a depressing one, because it essentially validates the creative team’s decision to drag out the cliffhanger to season six for a lot longer than it should have.
