I haven't bothered to tally it up, but I'm fairly certain the season got somewhere between a 7-8 on the season, based on my recollection of the avg. score most weeks.

Also a mid-80's score from critics and users on Metacritic for the season.

Not as much as TWD.

And relying on metacritic scores? Just proves the masses are stupid...look at how the last seasons of Ddxter and True Blood have been scoring FFS :lol:

Not relying on anything, just pointing to two available scores for the show. I'm sure I could get some more. The reviews have been generally very positive for the show, and the ratings keep growing season to season.

So maybe it's just not your thing, but it seems to be doing just fine both commercially and creatively to me. Sticking your head in the sand and going "LALALA" doesn't change that fact. :D

I pointed out to those becaus it proves metacritic is just a popularity contest when it comes to TV shows based on the cult followings they build up compared to movies.

Feel free to admit you're wrong any time now or continue to stick your head in the sand and take your own LALALA advice....I made my point :D

Here are some numbers for you:

http://www.nytimes.com/2013/03/04/business/media/walking-dead-helps-solidify-amcs-ratings-success.html?pagewanted=all&_r=0

During its run last fall, “The Walking Dead” was the highest-rated show among viewers 18 to 49, the most-sought age group, with a bigger audience than network winners like “The Big Bang Theory,” “American Idol,” “The Voice” and “Modern Family.”

Now the zombies are back for the second half of the show’s third season, and they continue to gnaw on everything in their path, including the broadcast networks’ historical claim to being the only place to find a mass audience. Three weeks ago, the zombies owned Sunday night, attracting 7.7 million viewers in the 18 to 49 range, more than any broadcast show in the land.

the fact that more people watch the walking dead over breaking bad just further reinforces my point that the unwashed masses are stupid.

You can't really argue quality for this exact reason.

The only objective way to argue about it is with numbers.

Sure, I agree that Breaking Bad is by far a better show, but that's beside the point. TWD gets good reviews, it is often one of the most talked about shows on monday mornings, or on social media after new episodes, and gets crazy ratings. I'm sure the creators are crying themselves to sleep at night because fieldy snuts on theouthousers.com doesn't like the show. :smt102

True.

Here are some numbers:
http://www.comicbookresources.com/?page=article&id=45995
http://quotes.wsj.com/AMCX?mod=inlineTicker%3f
http://boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=wanted.htm
http://boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=avengers11.htm
http://boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=darkknight.htm

I don't see anywhere that Image is "winning".

You can certainly support it and enjoy the books they produce, but the rails being gone off of are getting crazy.
