AMC’s The Walking Dead hit a new all-time low this past Sunday night when the latest episode of the series had its lowest audience ever in the show’s eight-year history.
The zombie thriller aired Sunday night opposite the ever-growing NBA All-Star Game. What seemed like good counter-programming turned out the lowest audience totals in the popular shows nine-season run. It’s reported episode average was down to 4.54 million viewers. Its previous record low was 4.71 million held by only it’s the second episode of The Walking Dead. However, let’s not forget that there are shows that would kill for those ratings.
Excluding sports such as the previously mentioned NBA or the NFL, The Walking Dead is still the reigning king among all other cable shows. Even when taking into consideration the fall off in ratings AMC has had from its golden goose in the last two seasons of the series.
Are you caught up with this season of AMC’s The Walking Dead? What do you think led to it’s lowest audience of all time? Let us know in the comments below!
Here’s a synopsis of AMC’s latest season of The Walking Dead:
Last season brought the culmination of “All Out War,” which pitted Rick Grimes and his group of survivors against the Saviors and their cunning leader, Negan. With Negan’s life in his hands, Rick had a character-defining choice in front of him. By making the unilateral decision to spare Negan, Rick upheld the values his late son, Carl, championed in order to build for the future, but created conflict within his group.
Now, we see our survivors a year and a half after the end of the war, rebuilding civilization under Rick’s steadfast leadership. It is a time of relative peace among the communities as they work together, looking to the past to forge the future, but the world they knew is rapidly changing as man-made structures continue to degrade, and nature takes over, changing the landscape and creating new challenges for our survivors.
As time passes, the communities confront unexpected obstacles, danger, and of course, walkers, but nothing quite prepares them for the formidable force they are about to encounter, which threatens the very idea of civilization that our survivors have worked so hard to build.
AMC’s The Walking Dead stars Norman Reedus, Danai Gurira, Melissa McBride, Alanna Masterson, Josh McDermitt, Christian Serratos, Seth Gilliam, Ross Marquand, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Austin Amelio, Khary Payton, Katelyn Nacon, Pollyanna McIntosh, Callan McAuliffe, Avi Nash, and Samantha Morton as Alpha.
