I wonder what percentage of the ratings are losers who say they hate the show, but keep watching so they can whine on and on about it on Fark.

Seriously?  People are complaining about commercials?  Farking DVR it, jesus.  For as long as I remember, shows with commercials have always been about 2/3 show and 1/3 commercial, give or take a few minutes in either direction.

The hating is just because the show is popular.  Yeah I don't agree with everything they do in the show.  But the fact that I watch it and critique it, is the mark of a good show.  The bad ones are the shows you don't care to watch, and there are a freaking ton of those.  There has never been a show like Walking Dead before and they are doing a great job.  This last half of the 3rd season was the best it has been so far.  Good mix of drama and action, got a little less manic about jumping around and started concentrating on specific characters in specific episodes.  If there is anything you can say about the show it is that their original cast of actors wasn't that great.  But the ones that are still around are doing better and the ones that have sucked have been dying off.

Anyways, I'm glad it is getting great ratings, it just means more to watch in the future.  Yay

Farty McPooPants: rugman11: Esroc: TV Companies pull crap like AMC's gratuitous amount of commercials, then wonder why so many people acquire the shows through nefarious means.

Look, I get it. Ads pay the bills. All that I can totally understand. But there's a line, and cable TV isn't just crossing it, they're leaping over it and nuking the line behind them as they go.

/never owned a TV or cable TV service. Don't understand people who do.

The Walking Dead's episodes are always between 42 and 45 minutes, with less than 20 minutes of commercial time.  It's no different than any other show on cable or broadcast.

[CITATION NEEDED]  Show us your data because I think you are wrong, especially the most recent episodes.


Amazon has the season finale at 44 minutes. I'm assuming that's without commercials.

Not really. Football can take as little as 80 minutes DVR'd


Sports fans tend to like watching it live.

I don't have an outside citation, I just have the episodes I've downloaded.  Here are the run times for the spring episodes:

03x09 - 43:17
03x10 - 43:17
03x11 - 43:25
03x12 - 43:20
03x13 - 43:13
03x14 - 43:15
03x15 - 43:21
03x16 - 42:45

The shortest episode of the season was the first at 42:41.  Now, AMC may occasionally run their episodes for 62 minutes (I don't recall off the top of my head and I can't find listings), but you never get more than 20 minutes of commercials.

I don't know why it took us so long, but we finally started watching it on Netflix last week.  We are into Season 2 now and hooked. The bulk of what I've seen so far was filmed within 10 miles of us and it's pretty cool to recognize places I know.

This, and getting caught up on Breaking Bad, makes Netflix worth the $7.99 a month.
