We still don’t know the fate of Glenn Rhee, but we certainly know who the chief clipper of the fall is – and we don’t mean Chris Paul. We also know that Sunday’s The Walking Dead and the premiere of Into The Badlands proved to be a good night for AMC.
With a rising TWD as a primo lead-in, Into The Badlands came roaring out of the gate at 10 PM with 6.4 million viewers and 3.994 million among 18-49s for a 3.15 rating. Ahead of Supergirl and Blindspot’s 3.1 ratings result by a hair, that makes the post-apocalyptic martial arts series the top-rated new series of the fall on either cable or broadcast. With Daniel Wu as an assassin warrior (called Clippers on the show) named Sunny, Badlands had a very sunny start — it also marked the best fall debut AMC has ever had.
