‘Walking Dead’ Season 9 Premiere Is Lowest-Rated in Series History

‘Walking Dead’ Season 9 Premiere Is Lowest-Rated in Series History”

The Walking Dead premiere has reached a new ratings low for the series. It's also a 50 percent drop even just from the premiere for previous year. The Walking Dead was the developer's biggest breakthrough hit, opening the door to several other major franchises, including Game of Thrones, Minecraft, Batman, and Guardians of the Galaxy.

The people who watched The Walking Dead's Season 9 premiere liked it, which is good news for AMC. Among adults 18-49, the show was down 51 percent. The Season 9 premiere did, however, bring in more total viewers than the series premiere-6.1 million versus the 5.3 million that tuned in to see the beginning of the AMC series.

This season's premiere is also flirting with a tie for the series low in the key demo, which was a 2.4 set back during Season 1.

What might serve as the lemonade from the proverbial lemons here is the number of overall viewers has not quite reached a low. However, that episode drew only 5.4 million viewers.

While still the second highest-rated show on TV behind NBC's This Is Us in the key demo, that's a lot of premiere numbers and perhaps a long-ish way of saying The Walking Dead's blockbuster days seem to be behind it, reset or not. Indeed, TWD firmly remains the top-rated cable series for Sunday night. Thus, there's an argument to be made that the shrinking Nielsen numbers could reflect an audience delivery method that's in the midst of an evolution, just as the series itself continues to experience.

Players who have pre-ordered the standard edition of Overkill's The Walking Dead should find a code waiting in their inbox, while those who purchased the deluxe edition will be given four codes for themselves and a trio of buddies to partake in the survival horror action.
