AMC‘s The Walking Dead is the hottest show on cable at the moment. The 90 minute season 2 premiere on Sunday, October 16th was the second most watched show on cable, behind only Monday Night Football on ESPN and ahead of such cable TV heavyweights as MTV’s Jersey Shore and the USA Network’s WWE Monday Night Raw.
The Walking Dead season premiere also blew away all other scripted new shows on cable, beating FX’s Sons of Anarchy by nearly three million viewers.
Season 2, episode 2 of The Walking Dead, entitled “Bloodletting” picks up in the immediate aftermath of the shocking death of Rick’s (Andrew Lincoln) son, Carl (Chandler Riggs). The preview below shows a brief conversation between T-Dog (Irone Singleton) and Dale (Jeffrey Demunn) who seem unaware of what’s happened in the woods.
