Tonight’s season finale of The Walking Dead is likely to be the most-watched show in the history of cable television. You don’t have to work for Nielsen to understand that The Walking Dead is a very popular show, and Sunday night’s episode will be something of an event. But a deeper dive into numbers behind the show ratings success tells an even more remarkable story. After AMC bought the pilot based on Robert Kirkman’s comics, the show has more than tripled its ratings in less than four years. And this season is likely to end with a record-breaking hour of television tonight.
