Actor Norman Reedus of ‘‘The Walking Dead’’ — the biggest show of the fall season among 18-to-49-year-olds — signed autographs recently at Comic-Con in New York City.

AMC Networks Inc. jumped to a new high as quarterly results beat estimates. Net income fell 8 percent to $36.6 million, hurt by a now-resolved dispute with Dish Network; revenue rose 17 percent to $332.1 million. But both were better than analysts expected. AMC says demand for its shows is strong, especially for the zombie survival series ‘‘The Walking Dead.’’
