Sunday Ratings: “Walking Dead” Nearly Deceased, Drops 25% Since February to 2.1 Million Viewers


“The Walking Dead” faces actual death now.

The AMC show in its 10th season is seeing a quick ratings collapse week to week. Zombies remain as the only loyal viewers.

On Sunday The Walking Dead dropped 25% from its February return to 2.17 million viewers. In February they were low, but at 2.89.

Years ago, The Walking Dead had 13 to 15 million viewers and was so hot you couldn’t touch it. Now, I’m not sure why it’s on TV.

There are just three more episodes left in this season, with another season set for the summer. At this rate, there will be no one left to register their viewing for Nielsen.

This is what happens when a show goes on too long.

Let it go now, AMC.
