 No surprise but AMC has ordered a second season of  "The Walking Dead."

 No surprise because it's done really well.

 Really well.

 Better than "Mad Men" and there are no walkers in that show.

Let's see - nearly 5 million viewers, all alive, and 3.3 million of 'em are between the ages of 18 and 49 which is pretty much the age that advertisers, and hence AMC, care about.

Plus, the show's pretty good. I've seen all three episodes for preview and can attest to that. So this is all good news.
