‘Walking Dead’ Tackles ESPN Football In Ratings | Multichannel

‘Walking Dead’ Tackles ESPN Football In Ratings | Multichannel.

I’m rather confused by this particular article, because The Walking Dead airs on Sunday night and ESPN televises their football games on MONDAY night. So I read a little deeper and I realized the author, Umstead, was comparing “top ratings honors” between the two cable shows.

Hmmmm, must be a slow TV news day. Not to mention the picture he uses is from last season. Oh well, we can’t all be hip and cool.

The chart at the end of the article is rather interesting – right off the bat there’s 2.4 million viewers separating The Walking Dead and Monday Night Football, but again I just don’t get the comparison. There’s over 6 million separating Monday Night Football and the MLB Playoffs.

The Talking Dead is just under the MLB Playoffs with 5.1 million (go Chris Hardwick). America loves its Dead.

Over at AMC, Seth Gilliam is now in the mix as Father Gabriel Stokes. Gilliam, 45, has a long and impressive list of TV and movie credits, but is probably most well known for his work on The Wire as Det./Sgt. Ellis Carver.

Tyler James Williams will also be joining the cast of The Walking Dead this season. You might know him from the movie Everybody Hates Chris.

If you saw the premiere episode of Season 5 you may have caught a brief sighting of Lennie James (Morgan Jones), who was in Season 1 and Season 3 and continues to be a fan favorite.

You can look forward to not only this season of The Walking Dead, but AMC renewed it for a sixth season just a few days before the premiere episode on Sunday, October 12.

The Walking Dead – New to Show and a Chip Dip Recipe!

The Walking Dead – New to Show – AMC.

It’s Friday, Dec. 21 and I have four days off in a row. Imagine, I don’t have to get up with the alarm clock for four days.

And then it’s back to work and then more days off! Plus I always take a vacation day after a Holiday which means I’ll be off on the 2nd of January which leads me to why I’m writing this post.

Starting on Dec. 31 and continuing through Jan. 1, AMC will be running all episodes of The Walking Dead. A perfect opportunity for you to get caught up with everything before new episodes return on Sunday, Feb. 10 at 9pm/8pm CT.

Lori Acken from our office interviewed Steven Yeun (who plays Glenn Rhee) this week and asked me for questions. I was honored.

One of the questions I gave her to ask him was if he had any recipes to recommend in case someone was planning a New Years Eve/Walking Dead Marathon party. I’m not sure if she asked him that, hence, not sure if he recommended any recipes, but I’ve got a helluva cream cheese and olive chip dip recipe that’s been in our family going on 50 years or more, if you want that.

The link I have for you is perfect if you’re New to the Show … because that’s exactly what the link is! Have fun … oh and if you want that chip dip recipe, leave me a comment with your email address and I’ll send it right along.
