‘After Shows’ Gaining Popularity

For many fans of AMC’s popular zombie drama The Walking Dead,” the show itself is not enough. They “love post-episode analysis,” reports The Wall Street Journal, which led to the launch of “Talking Dead,” a live after-show program that invites fans to discuss the episode they just watched. Now in its second season, “Talking Dead” draws more than a million viewers.

If the popularity of after shows continues, AMC may add them for its other hit series – “Breaking Bad” and “Mad Men.”
