AMC was quick to renew their hit TV series, The Walking Dead for a third season after the Season 2 premiere broke cable ratings records last October. In the first half of the second season last year, the show continued to maintain the strongest telecasts for any drama in basic cable history against Adults 18-49, and will probably continue to do so when the season picks back up on Sunday, February 12th.
