‘The Walking Dead’ Experiences Ratings Slump

This doesn’t necessarily mean that the series is on the decline – after all, Deadline also explained that competition from Sunday Night Football and The American Music Awards likely played a part in the ratings drop – but a dreary and meandering start to Season 8 can’t have helped matters.

There’s plenty of time for AMC’s prize possession to pick up the pace before its mid-season finale on December 10th, but for now viewers need a reason to tune in if ratings are to improve. Hopefully we see a drastic increase in focus and excitement in the coming weeks to ensure that The Walking Dead is still regarded as must-watch television.
