TV’s two highest-rated dramas could not be more different.
AMC’s “The Walking Dead” is the well-known ratings champ. The zombie drama continues to rank the highest in the 18-49 age demographic.
But Fox’s hip-hop drama “Empire” is coming for the top spot. That show’s last episode came in second for the week in the 18-49 demographic and raked in an impressive 12.9 million viewers overall.
