A lot of you may not know that the rest of television doesn't just stop Sunday nights. In fact, this last Sunday, the return of The Walking Dead competed with both The Olympics in Sochi and The Beatles: The Night That Changed America, A Grammy Salute. While it didn't beat these two enormous network events, it did surpass them in a key category, Adults 18-49.

That's pretty crazy for a cable TV show.
