The Walking Dead Season 5 Finale Is Highest-Rated Finale In Series History

the-walking-dead-episode-516-rick-lincoln-560

The special 90-minute Season 5 Finale of The Walking Dead last night was the highest-rated finale in series history, delivering 15.8 million viewers and 10.4 million adults 18-49. The episode capped the show’s strong fifth season with all 16 episodes ranking in the top 20 entertainment telecasts across all of television this broadcast season among adults 18-49. When including sports and specials, all 16 episodes of The Walking Dead season five rank in the top 50 telecasts across all of television among adults 18-49 – the first time a series has achieved this in cable history. With time-shifted playback added in, this Season Finale of The Walking Dead should exceed more than 20 million viewers and 14 million adults 18-49.

The Walking Dead remains the #1 show in all of television among adults 18-49. Despite formidable competition from the NFL in the first half of its season and special event programming in the second half, such as the Oscars, the Grammys, the Saturday Night Live 40th Anniversary Special and the NBA All-Star Game, the show’s fifth season has delivered an average of 14.4 million viewers and 9.4 million adults 18-49 live/same day across its 16 episodes, an increase of 9% season over season in adults 18-49.

Also last night, Talking Dead achieved its highest-rated episode in series history, drawing 7.5 million viewers and 4.9 million adults 18-49. Each week, the live Talking Dead aftershow features host Chris Hardwick and fans, actors, producers and other TV enthusiasts discussing that night’s The Walking Dead premiere. Last night’s Season Finale featured Norman Reedus (Daryl), Melissa McBride (Carol) and Lennie James (Morgan).

The Walking Dead Q&A – Tyler James Williams (Noah)

the-walking-dead-episode-514-noah-williams-325Tyler James Williams, who plays Noah on AMC’s The Walking Dead, talks about how he called his character’s death and shares his brilliant plan for hiding out from walkers.

Q: How long did you know in advance what would happen to Noah?

A: You have to deal with the paranoia that everyone else has and it can happen at any moment. I had a feeling, as much as I love this character, that he was going to go. I called it before Scott Gimple announced it to everyone.

Q: A ton happened to Noah in a few short episodes – helping Beth, finding his family, and dying – which was the hardest to film?

A: I’d have to say Tyreese’s death [in Episode 509] was probably hardest because it was so much to run over, quickly. At the top of the episode, Noah’s incredibly hopeful that he’s going to get back to his family. His goal is to meet up with his people and leave Rick and the crew and that’s it, but then he has this devastating breakdown. His place has been ransacked, then he sees his dead mother just lying there and – before he could fully mourn that – one of the people who protected him is possibly dying, when they just lost someone else two weeks ago. There was a lot going on in that episode for him that wasn’t processed until later.

Q: Can you talk more about that scene when Noah discovered he’s lost his family and community? Was that a tough scene to film?
