“The Walking Dead” 9th Season Premiere Had Lowest Ratings of The Series7 months ago by Amber Le in TV News
The Walking Dead has been going strong for 8 seasons but with every season, it seems as though the fanbase shrinks a little bit more. After all, the show revolves around the characters killing zombies and how many possible ways is there to do that? The series debuted their ninth season and it has the lowest ratings of all the seasons yet.
According to Variety, Nielsen data reported that the AMC series brought in a 2.5 rating in adults 18-49 and 6.1 million viewers. The previous low sat at a 2.7 for a series premiere. In comparison, the season 8 premiere drew a 5.0 rating and 11.4 million viewers last year. The viewership has essentially been cut in half. None the less, The Walking Dead still reigned supreme in the Sunday night slot. It was the top-rated show on Sunday night by a landslide, and according to AMC, the premiere also brought in the highest day of new sign-ups in the history of the channel’s premieres.
