AMC has made their goal over most of this holiday season pretty simple: Try their best to figure out how to marathon everything that they know that their viewers are going to want to watch. They did this first of all with “Breaking Bad,” and now they are getting set to move into territory where it is all about “The Walking Dead.”
For those of you who really want to just sit around for almost 48 hours straight and watch zombies, zombies, and more zombies, here is some of the information that you will need to know. The pilot episode of this series is going to start things off at 9:00 a.m. Eastern time on New Year’s Eve, and from there the network is going to air every episode in succession. This will carry over not only to New Year’s Day, but also a few hours into January 2. The midseason finale for season 4, which featured (spoiler alert!) the deaths of The Governor and Hershel, is going to air at 4:00 a.m. that morning.
There is obviously a pretty great reason for AMC to continue to milk this series for everything that they can: They know that “The Walking Dead” is a powerhouse show for them, and it is the highest-rated scripted show on television of any kind. Why not try to make as much money off of this as humanly possible? It’s also nice promotion for Sunday, February 9, which is when the final eight episodes of season 4 are going to start airing. The series has already been renewed for a fifth season, so there’s no reason to worry about this zombie drama coming to a screeching halt anytime soon.
Is there any way that you would entertain the idea of watching all of these “Walking Dead” episodes again and again, especially when you can already do so on DVD if you are this big of a fan? Share below!
