That’s not all. In what is yet more proof that geeks rule the Internet, iTunes’ most downloaded single episode is from the critically acclaimed horror show The Walking Dead, for its season-two opener, “What Lies Ahead.”

Other winners include the show True Blood, Smallville‘s two-part finale and an episode of Terra Nova.

5. True Blood
6. Top Gear
7. Glee
8. Entourage
9. Archer
10. The Walking Dead

8. Two and a Half Men – “Nice to Meet You, Walden Schmidt”
9. Victorious – “Ice Cream for Ke$ha”

According to Digital Spy:

“This is incredibly exciting news,” said Doctor Wholead writer and executive producer Steven Moffat. “It’s an honor to be on the same list as all those shows, let alone at the very top.”And for a British show to have achieved this in the US is absolutely remarkable. Next, the universe!”

Thanks, iTunes, for giving us easy access to our favorite shows. And while you’re at it, would you please give us Game of Thrones and Torchwood: Miracle Day?

Star Trek 2 Behind By Months

Yesterday J.J. Abrams stopped by The Howard Stern Show to promote Super 8, but he also gave an update on Star Trek 2.

Although Abrams has yet to see the script for Star Trek 2, he was able to let Stern and Trek fans know how far behind the sequel was, so as mentioned during the last few weeks, Star Trek 2 will probably not be released next summer.

“We’re probably six months behind,” Abrams told Stern.

In another interview with MTV, Abrams elaborated on the delay. “I would say it’s not an impossibility to do it, but the studio agrees the most important thing is that the movie be good. No one wants to make something that makes its date but isn’t necessarily worth your time. I want to make sure that whatever we do and whenever it comes out that it’s something that people will have a great time watching.

“We’ve been discussing everything. The most important thing is how do we do something that we get excited about and that is worthy of the audience.”

No word yet on whether Abrams will direct, and he won’t commit one way or the other until he sees the script. “Without even knowing what the story is, part of me feels jealous of anyone else who gets to work with those actors—such an amazing group of actors,” he said. “But I also want to make sure I know what it is I’m being asked to direct before I do it. We’re working on the story and getting there. I’m very excited about what they’ve come up with so far.”
