'Fear the Walking Dead' had most-watched first season in cable history

There's seemingly no way to stop the zombies of AMC. 

"Fear the Walking Dead," a spinoff of the cable network's smash zombie hit "The Walking Dead," averaged 11.2 million total viewers, making it the most-watched first season in cable history, according to Nielsen data that measures viewing, including the live telecast and delayed watching over the following three days.

In the key demographic of adults ages 18 to 49 (the audience that advertisers care most about), "Fear" averaged 7.3 million viewers, according to numbers released Friday.
