'Hell on Wheels:' Hellacious start

Very good start for "Hell on Wheels" last night. Was it actually "hellacious?" Well, play along with me anyway.

It was seen by 4.4 million. That's a very good start for AMC and per the cable network, the second best launch in its history, after "The Walking Dead."

Speaking of which, "Dead" is now seen by about 6 mill, which makes it a pretty sizable cable hit, and as a lead-in, certainly a very good launchpad for any show that follows. But I do believe "Hell" has wheels: Last night was a good pilot, and the series is compelling -- bloody , but compelling.
