FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - An all new episode of television's number #1 show, AMC's "The Walking Dead," airs Sunday, November 6th at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT. The season seven premiere delivered 20.8 million total viewers, according to Nielsen live+3 ratings. Critics are already raving about season seven, including Brian Lowry of CNN.com, who said, "'The Walking Dead' still has a strong array of assets, and its willingness to jettison important players has been vital in keeping the storytelling unpredictable and evolving. Those who have stuck with the show since the beginning will still find plenty to like about it, and AMC has every reason to continue mining its huge footprint in the cultural zeitgeist."
On the third episode, "The Cell" - written by Angela Kang and directed by Alrick Riley - we're introduced to a completely new group of survivors living in an impressive community that seems to have it all - for a price.
The first half of season seven sees the group fractured, broken, bereaved, and picking up the pieces while living under the thumb of oppression. Negan will have successfully brought the survivors under his will, brutally convincing them to live under his rules with a deadly and horrific example of what happens if they don't.
Based on the comic book series written by Robert Kirkman and published by Image Comics, "The Walking Dead" reigns as television's most watched drama for Adults 18-49. "The Walking Dead" tells the story of the months and years that follow after a zombie apocalypse, and follows a group of survivors, led by police officer Rick Grimes, who travel in search of a safe and secure home. The series is executive produced by showrunner Scott M. Gimple, Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, David Alpert, Greg Nicotero and Tom Luse.
Then, viewers can catch a new episode of the live after-show "Talking Dead" hosted by Chris Hardwick joined by a surprise cast member from "The Walking Dead" and the host of Comedy Bang! Bang! Podcast, Scott Aukerman at 10:01 p.m. ET/PT.
Season six of "Comic Book Men" continues Sunday, November 6th at 12:00 a.m. ET/PT. In the third episode, "Pac-Ming," Ming battles a customer when a vintage 1980s Pac-Man game lands on the counter. A rare Beatles board game has the guys flipping their mop-tops!
In its sixth season, AMC's popular unscripted series "Comic Book Men" takes another dive into world of geekdom by following the antics in and around master fanboy Kevin Smith's New Jersey comic shop, Jay and Silent Bob's Secret Stash. Leading the team behind the shop's counter are Walt, Bryan, Michael and Ming, who geek out over mind-blowing pop culture artifacts and the legends behind them. Special guests this season include Cassandra Peterson, Elvira, Mistress of the Dark; The Bionic Woman, Lindsay Wagner; and makeup artist extraordinaire Robert Kurtzman. Whether it's buying and selling memorabilia or embarking on wild adventures away from the store, The Stash cast shares all the juicy details with Kevin during their hilarious podcast, which is woven throughout the series.
