AMC’s newest series, period Western Hell On Wheels, was off to a strong start last night. It drew 4.4 million viewers and ranked as the cable network’s second-highest-rated series premiere behind mega-hit The Walking Dead, which opened with 5.3 million last fall, in total viewers as well as adults 18-49 and 25-54. Hell On Wheels is young-skewing, drawing more adults 18-49 viewers (2.4 million) than adults 25-54 (2.3 million). “I congratulate the entire cast and crew of Hell On Wheels for pulling off a project of this scope,” AMC president Charlie Collier said. “Bringing the grandeur of the Old West and the building of the railroad to life is no small feat and the Gaytons, with their team, have delivered a beautiful world of which we are all so proud.” The eOne-produced Hell On Wheels, set in post-Civil War America circa 1865, was created and written by Joe and Tony Gayton.
