Now that The Walking Dead has staggered off for its customary six-month between-seasons break, broadcasters last night may have hoped to regain some of their lost potency in the Sunday 9 p.m. time slot. Didn’t happen.
Low Winter Sun
Powered by the voracious and indefatigable phenomenon that is The Walking Dead, AMC Networks enjoyed a strong fourth quarter, boosting ad sales revenue 31 percent to $205 million.
Despite disappointing ratings and rumors of impending cancelation for AMC's Low Winter Sun, writer Rolin Jones is getting another pilot order from the network, this one a little less dour, in keeping with Jones' roots on Showtime dramedy The United States of Tara.
The sun just got a lot lower: AMC's much-anticipated new cop drama Low Winter Sun lost more than half of its demo viewership in its second episode, logging a 0.5 among 18-49 year-old viewers versus last week's 1.1 rating.
The countdown to the end of AMC’s Breaking Bad began on a high note Sunday night, as the Emmy Award-winning show delivered record ratings.
Charlie Collier told an audience at the Television Critics Association confab in Los Angeles this morning that the network will be picking up its two scripted drama pilots—Halt & Catch Fire and Turn—for first seasons.
Because he is the president of the network and because Jon Hamm has momentarily stepped out to take a call while a photographer adjusts the lighting, Charlie Collier is allowing himself a quick peek at the contents of Don Draper’s desk.
