The premier of season 2 for the zombie story based on a comic book series found 7.3 million viewers for its Sunday season two premier.
Considering the turmoil with the departure of show runner Frank Darabont, and those loyal to the comic book being upset about storyline alterations, the debut of the new season must come as a relief.
With the crazy cliffhanger at the end of the episode, surely the viewership will stick around.
