  • AMC Unfazed by 'The Walking Dead' Ratings Decline

    Network AMC isn't concerned by a decline in The Walking Dead ratings."Our decline has really mirrored the declines across basic cable -- we just had higher to fall from," Sarah Barnett, president of AMC's entertainment networks group, told Vulture."The fact that we are still the No. 1 show by a margin of two to one ...

  • Did ‘Fear The Walking Dead's' Reboot Bring Its Ratings Back To Life?

    In 2015, when AMC introduced Fear the Walking Dead, it put up huge numbers out of the gate. According to Uproxx, the West Coast zombie thriller grabbed 10 million overnight viewers with its premiere episode before settling down into the 6 million range for rest of season one. But in the disastrous season two of the series, ratings took a deep dive into the drink, dropping by 50%. The third leveled off some, though ratings did continue to decline. Byt the time season four hit, major shakeups were in order. Lennie James, Jenna Elfman and Garrett Dillahunt joined the cast, two new showrunners took over, and plenty of major characters were killed off. It worked--sort of. In other words, while the ratings didn't see a dramatic improvement over season three, it stopped the ratings erosion. It even slightly improved on season three's ratings.

  • How Could 'Fear The Walking Dead's' Ratings Improve?

    AMC likely never expected Fear the Walking Dead to become as mammoth a hit as its parent series, The Walking Dead. However, the spin-off's declining viewership figures do present cause for concern. The issue isn’t so much the numbers themselves, but the velocity of its decline that will have network executives losing sleep. The recently announced crossover between "Fear the Walking Dead" and "The Walking Dead" could perhaps reverse the decline, but the first half of season 3 of the spin-off has received bad reviews.

  • The Walking Dead Season 8 Could Break Ratings Record

    To post record numbers in terms of viewership in their upcoming 8th season, The Walking Dead would have to overcome the downward slope observed throughout its seventh season. Season 7 started with 17 million viewers -- a number just shy of the 17.3 million viewer record set two years prior. With action, explosions, and the fight being taken back to Negan in the Season 8 trailer, The Walking Dead is giving fans something to root for with its new season and, therefore, a whole new reason to continue watching or revisit a show they may have given up on.
