Daryl From The Walking Dead Was This Week’s Biggest Badass On Television

What would you do if a zombie apocalypse actually broke out? Personally, I’d like to think I would be there to save the day rescuing women and children from the living dead but, truthfully, I’d most likely be found hiding in the corner of a closet in some abandoned building.

Either way, I think it’s safe to say that most of us would not be nearly as brave as Daryl Dixon on The Walking Dead, who emotion measurement company Canvs detected as the most badass person on television this week.

Check it: More than 60% of all badass Emotional Reactions (ERs) on TV were prompted by the fan-favorite, with Daryl being mentioned in more than half. Overall, badass ERs accounted for over 26% of the emotionally charged engagements mentioning the character.
