Sunday 18-49 overnights

7.0 NBC Football
3.8 MLB Baseball
3.5 Desperate Housewives
3.3 The Walking Dead
2.9 Undercover Boss
2.6 CSI Miami
2.5 Amazing Race
2.3 Brothers & Sisters
I have a feeling that the ratings will only jump. The word of mouth on this show is going to be batshit crazy. All the review sites and other TV web forums that I have read, everyone loved it. This has the potential to blow up into the biggest Cable TV show since The Sopranos.

I love the books True Blood is based on. I've watched virtually every episode the night it premiered. So I hope people don't take this as some kind of anti-True Blood bias...

I really hope Walking Dead maintains that audience, because their premeire episode was exponentially better than any episode True Blood has ever had.

My favorite part was easily the crawling zombie/sniping incident, it had good music background and made me feel sorry for the zombie.

As far as particular elements of the show go, I didn't even notice his accent. And I loved the way they used silence for atmosphere, and used background music sparingly. I thought it was the complete antithesis of hackneyed melodramatic film scoring.

(Which I realize is a characteristic of AMC shows, or rather it's been a characteristic of the ones I've watched)

Yeah, I didn't notice the accent being "bad" at all. I think in the brief 1 minute clips that I saw, I was just not hearing enough to know that it was a good accent. I'm not disappointed at all. The first episode was almost perfect, IMO. The only gripes I had were the CG Blood, and in the tank when he shoots the soldier zombie, the camera angle changes, then changes back to showing the zombie, and the blood spatter is just not there.

Oh wow, I didn't realize Bear McCreary did the scoring for The Walking Dead. No wonder I liked the way it was scored. (He did Battlestar Galactica, for people who don't know him).

He has a really sweet run-down on his blog: http://www.bearmccreary.com/blog/?p=4964

Absolutely. When he was in the pitch black stairwell, and only had light between matches, with nothing but quiet...

Man, not a single zombie in that scene, and it was still scary and suspenseful as ****...

Okay, each week after the episode airs, I will update the OP with TV Critic Reviews and AMC videos and pictures about that specific episode.

It's also a choice made in No Country for Old Men which, coincidentally, won best sound editing.

Loved it...lived up my expectations and then some.

Already watched it twice...probably will watch it again tonight.

Easily my new favorite show and I can't wait to see where this season goes.

Only a matter of time before we get a Season 2 after those monster ratings.

The audience will grow after I let a few guys at work how good it was. A couple of them don't even seem to know it ever existed...
