Record Figures for The Walking Dead Episode 1

As a recent convert to Robert Kirkman's The Walking Dead series of comic books published by Image Comics I'm looking forward to the first episode of AMC's new The Walking Dead television series: here in Great Britain the first episode airs this Friday evening, 5 November, at 10pm on FX.

The first episode - which aired in the US on Halloween appropriately enough - has been met with universal praise as far as I can gauge and, according to The Clicker, it seems that 5.3 million viewers tuned in for the first episode last weekend - apparently the highest for any of the shows in the networks history and the biggest for a cable series premiere this year.
