According to Variety, the long-running AMC series The Walking Dead has hit its lowest ratings ever with last Sunday’s episode.
The second episode of the ninth season experienced a 2.0 rating in the key adults 18-49 demographic. The show’s previous low came in the first season where it experienced 2.4 in the key demo. The Live+Same Day numbers were calculated to 4.9 million viewers which is very close to the show’s current low in total viewers, which is 4.7 million, also set during Season 1.
The Walking Dead was able to get more eyes on it then the ALCS game but couldn’t pull in a bigger audience than Sunday Night Football. This all comes after a less than stellar premiere that should make all hardcore fans very concerned. The series that once reigned supreme as the most watched show on television has fans moving as slow as a rotted out walker to their TVs to see it. The latest season will continue with its third episode next weekend.
