The Walking Dead Ratings Down Sharply In Season Nine Premiere

10 October 2018, 11:00 | Elsie Buchanan

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. It's a jaw-dropping decline, and one which undoubtedly has AMC execs reaching for the Maalox this morning. That is the lowest rating in adults 18-49 since the show began, with the previous low being a 2.7 for the series premiere. ABC's The Good Doctor has suffered a similar sophomore slump, while veterans such as How to Get Away With Murder, The Voice, Dancing With the Stars, and American Horror Story have all clocked in with declines of 25 percent or more.

Hurricane Michael heads for FL; Means more rain for WNC
The hurricane is expected to be the most powerful storm to strike the southern USA state's panhandle in at least a decade. Kay Ivey warned of power outages and other problems, and forecasters said spinoff tornadoes would be a threat.

Walkers seem to have taken a bite out of The Walking Dead season nine premiere ratings. Still, there's no spinning this level of decline as anything but evidence that a big chunk of Walking Dead's audience has simply chose to move on. This actually puts it below the series premiere, which managed to earn a 2.7 in 2010. That "The Day Will Come When You Won't Be" episode had just more than 17 million viewers, and was virtually tied with the Season 5 debut.

As ugly as these numbers are for AMC, it's not quite the apocalypse yet for the network. More and more people are watching on a delayed viewing schedule, either through On Demand or Apps, or even just waiting until the full season is available on Netflix to binge it.

Similar to how the likes of the already well watched Starz drama has carved out a greater audience by dropping new episodes at midnight on Sundays for fans who sign up for the premium cabler's app, AMC gave TWD fans an early bite on the show's season premiere for the very first time this weekend. 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).
