‘The Walking Dead’ season 3: Ring in the new year with walkers

The Walking Dead season 3Just in case you are not in the mood to celebrate 2013 with a giant ball dropping in Times Square or while watching musical performances, we have another option for you: watching humans try to survive in a post-Apocalyptic society with zombies running rampant and spreading like a disease.

According to some new reports, AMC has announced that beginning at 9:00 p.m. Eastern time on New Year’s Eve, they will run the entirety of “The Walking Dead” season 3 thus far. This will of course begin with the premiere episode “Seed,” and run until we reach “Made To Suffer” at 4:07 a.m. (just for those of you who are truly the night owls in every sense of the word).

Just from the standpoint of ratings alone, how can you argue the move? This is by far the most-popular show on cable, and also has been consisted the top rating drama on all television. “The Walking Dead” is in many ways a sign of the Apocalypse for broadcast networks, as they now have to realize that they need to do something more in their development in order to ensure that the top ideas are cultivated there rather than at places like AMC, HBO, or FX. The show itself will return with new episodes on February 10, and will run in that timeslot for eight weeks before reaching the finale. (As for whether or not “Mad Men” will premiere during this winter run, that is still to be seen.)

Is watching this show your idea of a great New Year’s Eve? If you want to see some more news pertaining to what is coming up on “The Walking Dead” season 3 (otherwise known now as the final episodes with executive producer Glen Mazzara), you can do so over at the link here.
