the-walking-dead-season4AMC’s The Walking Dead is back from its hiatus and in a big way.  Not only did it match it previous ratings record with Sunday night’s episode, that series also topped the Nielsen Twitter Rankings for the period of February 3rd through 9th and topped the cable charts based on total viewers.  And the 8.2 rating in the 18-49 demographic that the show scored for its return topped everything on television except the Olympic opening ceremonies last Friday night.  At the Number 3 slot on the Cable Top 25 was recap series The Talking Dead and at Number 4 was the last two episodes of the Walking Dead marathon that preceded the show’s mid-season return.  This series continues to be a ratings force and doesn’t look to be slowing down anytime soon.

Also continuing to remain strong in the social networks is MTV’s Teen Wolf which was at the Number 5 slot on the Nielsen Twitter Rankings for last week.  And a couple of the broadcast network shows managed to climb back into the charts as both Agents of SHIELD and Person of Interest had new episodes last week.  Those two went back into hiding, though, as their networks have ceded Prime Time to NBC for the week and are only programming repeats and specials against Olympics coverage.

Here is the full look at chart activity for genre shows for the week of February 3rd through February 9th:
