It's probably no surprise but nonetheless a relief to its millions of fans. The hugely popular AMC series "The Walking Dead" has been renewed for a 5th season. Just how popular is the zombie-themed show?

Time Magazine reports that the show is especially appealing to younger viewers.

Walking Dead is TV’s top rated show among those aged 18-49, and the season four premiere brought in more than 16 million viewers, a record for AMC.

Furthermore, if those who stream the show within 3 days of its airing are counting that number increases to 20 million viewers. This probably explains why we will see so many zombie costumes at your door asking for treats tomorrow night.
