    Sunday's 90-minute series premiere of "Fear the Walking Dead" made television history. Delivering 10.1 million viewers, it took the crown as most-watched series debut in cable TV history for total viewers and all key demos, the AMC network said Monday.

    The episode delivered 6.3 million adults in the 18-to-49 demographic many advertisers prefer to reach.

    A "Talking Dead" Season 6 Preview Special that preceded the "Fear" premiere delivered 4.2 million viewers, with 2.5 million viewers in the 18-to-49 demo.

    The first season of "Fear the Walking Dead" will run for six episodes this fall, then return for a second season of 15 episodes next year.
