Is The Walking Dead dead?

The Walking Dead returned to TV screens last Monday with very explosive start to the season, but fans did not return the way they did for the season 7 opener.

Now that it’s been a few days, the final numbers are in from the premiere and it’s not exactly what the producers were hoping for.

Season 7 did not end on a cliffhanger and that would definitely have something to do with it. However, the first episode of Season 8 did, so the ratings are bound to go up.

The premiere of Season 7 drew 17.03 million viewers overall but the premiere of season 8 only drew 11.4 million viewers overall. Going from the trend below it also means that this is the least-watched season premiere of The Walking Dead since season 3 which had 10.8 million viewers on the premiere. Here is the trend below, courtesy of

Season 1:   5.35 million

Season 2:   7.26 million

Season 3:   10.86 million

Season 4:   16.11 million

Season 5:   17.29 million

Season 6:   14.63 million

Season 7:   17.03 million

Season 8:   11.4 million
