‘Fear the Walking Dead’ Breaks Cable Records

AMC’s Walking Dead spin-off, Fear The Walking Dead, is the highest-rated first season cable drama in history, across total viewers and all key demographics in live +3 ratings.

The six-episode series averaged 11.2 million viewers (7.3 million adults age 18-49 and 7.2 million adults age 25-54) in live+3. The series premiere set its own record for a cable premiere, drawing 10.1 million viewers (6.3 in the age 18-49 demographic) (see “‘Fear the Walking Dead’ Sets Cable Records”). The October 4th season finale, The Good Man, netted 10.1 million viewers in live+3 (6.5 million adults age 18-49 and 6.6 million adults age 25-54). By comparison, The Walking Dead first six-episode season series netted a little over 6 million viewers, though that was a record itself back in 2010 (see “‘Walking Dead’ Ratings Tops”).  The flagship zombie drama’s season five finale was watched by an estimated 15.8 million viewers (see “‘The Walking Dead’ Best Ratings Ever for Finale”).

According to Deadline this makes Fear the Walking Dead the #3 freshmen scripted series across all television in the coveted 18 – 49 demographic, lagging only behind Fox’s Empire and NBC’s original Heroes drama.

“When we set out to launch a companion series to the #1 show on television, there were truly many things to fear, beyond Fear itself. To see this show stand alone, break through and set records as a unique piece of storytelling is very gratifying and a tribute to great creative talent,” said Charlie Collier, president of AMC, SundanceTV and AMC Studios.

The second season will air in 2016. AMC has already teased that one of the characters from the web series will join the cast in season two (see “‘Fear The Walking Dead: Flight 462’”).

‘Ghostbusters’ Go Global in 2016

New York Comic Con News: IDW announced it will launch the new globally-based Ghostbusters comic series Ghostbusters International in January.

According to CBR, the series will be helmed by regular Ghostbusters series team Erik Burnham and Dan Schoening. The main cover will be provided by Schoening, and IDW also released an issue #1 cover by Corin Howell. The series will see the original Ghostbusters team: Ray, Peter, Winston, and Egon traveling the globe to battle international spooks at the behest of the United Nations.  This leaves New York City unprotected, so some old and new recruits will have to defend the ‘busters home turf.

The Ghostbusters property has been heating up this year, with the new movie due in theaters next summer (see “Sigourney Weaver in ‘Ghostbusters’”), an animated film in development (see “Animated ‘Ghostbusters’ Film”), and a second, unrelated live-action film in development as well (see “‘Ghostbusters’ for the Boys”).

How to Connect the Legs to the Torso

As you remember from the old song, the hip bone is connected to the leg bone and so on but some young artists get so intent on making the upper body look amazing and strong that they forget how to attach the legs in an artistically correct fashion and allows them to look like they “belong” with the torso.
