Walking Dead Named TV’s Deadliest Show

Walking Dead Named TV's Deadliest Show

( 4UMF NEWS ) Walking Dead Named TV’s Deadliest Show:

Not surprisingly, AMC’sThe Walking Dead” has been named the deadliest show on TV, according to funeral resource guide Funeralwise.com.

In its second annual “TV Body Count Study” examining the death toll on 40 TV series during the fall 2012 season, the zombie drama topped the list with an average of 38 dead bodies an episode — 91 percent of them zombies. Coming in second was Cinemax‘s “Strike Back,” with 26 dead bodies an hour, followed by NBC’s freshman breakout “Revolution” with 11. All the deceased on “Strike Back” and “Revolution,” however, were human.

Elsewhere, the study revealed guns were the weapon of choice, with gunshot victims comprising 44 percent of all the fatalities observed in the study, followed by knives, which accounted for 19 percent of the deceased.

Men also represented 86 percent of the dead, while women were most likely to be killed by means other than a gun.
Overall, the study found that death on TV continues to be on the rise, with the 40 shows examined averaging nearly five hits an episode, up 12 percent year-over-year.

In slightly better news for the online funeral guide, the number of onscreen funerals ticked up from last year’s eight to 11.

Worth noting: Of the 40 shows examined in 2012, last year’s two deadliest series — Starz‘s “Spartacus” and HBO’sGame of Thrones” — were not included.
