Lowest Ratings Ever: “The Walking Dead” Returns with First Episode Since October, Dropped Another 8%


“The Walking Dead” is crawling dead, to its end. I don’t understand why there are spin offs coming.

Sunday night’s episode was the first since October. The show returned down 8.25% with just 1.756 million viewers. That’s literally one-tenth pf its 17 million when the series was all the rage. That was a long time ago.

The ratings have collapsed over time, this whole last run, since it began in August. But with this disappointing return, things are only going to get worse. Where did all the viewers go? I guess all their favorite characters have been eaten or whatever.
