AMC's "The Walking Dead" generated substantial discussion on Twitter, taking top honors as the most tweeted-about show of the week, according to Nielsen's SocialGuide rankings.

Sunday's episode, in which the Governor returns a seemingly changed man, produced 262,300 tweets that reached a Twitter audience of more than 4 million. NBC's singing competition "The Voice" claimed the No. 2 spot, with nearly 600,000 tweeted comments reaching about 2.5 million people.
