Skybound Games to Finish Telltales’ The Walking Dead: The Final Season

10 October, 2018, 10:56 | Author: Cecil Buchanan

Still, The Walking Dead's ratings peaked in season 5 (with a season premiere of more than 17 million viewers) and have ebbed each year since. Those numbers are down 50% and 45% from last year's season premiere numbers of a 5.0 demo rating and 11.44 million viewers. In fact, now available on Comcast, YouTubeTV, Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV and Apple iOS, AMC Premiere had its best day ever with The Walking Dead's new season opener. The less-than-stellar ratings also marked the first time since season one that a season premiere has not garnered more than 10 million viewers. The Season 9 premiere was also down approximately 50% in the key demo and 47% in total viewers compared to the Season 8 opener, which drew a 5.0 and 11.4 million viewers previous year. Moreover, the Season 9 opener's 2.5 rating places the series dangerously close to its all-time key demo low of 2.4, which occurred during Season 1, back when it was still an experimental 6-episode fall 2010 season offering.

Compared to the Season 8 "Wrath" finale of April 15, "A New Beginning" fell 23 % in total viewers and 27% among 18-49s. Additionally, while its former status as top-rated series on Sundays was yielded to NBC's This is Us, it's still a close contest, since that show barely bested TWD with a 2.7 rating. The move drove the single highest day of new sign-ups in the history of the service (those views are not counted by Nielsen, but also aren't released by AMC).

The IMF again downgrades outlook for the global economy

We may find out exactly how many fans that was later this week if AMC provide some of that AMC Premiere data with Live + 3 numbers. TL;DR: The number of people watching The Walking Dead Season 9 is almost back to the number of people who watched the show in Season 1, when it was first getting off the ground.
