AMC Drops "The Walking Dead" Season 7 Trailer, Release Date
Updated: July 23, 2016 - 6:05 pm

AMC(SAN DIEGO) -- On October 23 at 9 p.m. Eastern, fans of The Walking Dead will finally got to see which one of Rick's gang Negan executed in the closing moments of season six.

The AMC smash -- pun intended -- will return that night, finally, presumably, solving the mystery of which cast member bought it at the end of Lucille, the barb wire-covered bat wielded by Jeffrey Dean Morgan's big bad. 

Along with that news, shared at San Diego Comic-Con, came a new trailer.

Footage of the beloved characters in the Grimes posse -- Rick, Daryl, Carl, Abraham, Maggie, Glenn, Sasha, Aaron, Michonne, Rosita, and Eugene -- flash by as Negan calmly recites, "Eeny, Meeny, Miney, Moe."

The footage -- which also features the expected walker-killing action -- also introduces another major character from the Walking Dead graphic novel series, the tiger-wielding King Ezekiel.

Seriously: dude sits on a throne and pets a tiger.

Paul McCartney Honored as UK's "Most Successful Album Artist"
Updated: July 23, 2016 - 6:05 pm

MPL Communications/MJ Kim(LONDON) -- The U.K.'s Official Charts Company has presented Paul McCartney with the prestigious Official Chart Record Breaker Award in recognition of the rock legend being the most successful album artist in the history of his home country. McCartney received the honor for scoring more total #1 albums on the U.K.'s Official Albums Chart, 22, than any other artist.

The 74-year-old musician's old band The Beatles notched 15 chart-topping albums, while Sir Paul also hit #1 four times as a solo artist, twice with Wings and once with his late wife, Linda.


In a video message, McCartney says the honor, "feels unbelievable, because when you write your songs you don't count how well they're doing. I remember when Please, Please Me went to number one, that was our first number one record, and it's a beautiful feeling to suddenly get this [award]."

He adds, "So thank you to the people for giving it to me, I love you. And thank you to everyone who made it possible by buying the records, we love you too!"

The Official Charts Company notes that McCartney also has spent the most total weeks atop the albums chart, 191, while the Fab Four's first album, 1963's Please Please Me, was #1 for more weeks, 30, than any other debut effort.

Following McCartney on the list of artists with the most #1 U.K. albums are his three Beatles band mates: John Lennon at #2 with 18; George Harrison at #3 with 17; and Ringo Starr tied at #4 -- with pop star Robbie Williams -- with 15. Elvis Presley, Phil Collins and Madonna are tied for sixth place on the list with 12 chart-topping albums, while David Bowie is #9 with 11.

McCartney receives his award on the 60th anniversary of the publication of the first Official Albums Chart.
