“Walking Dead” S9 Finale Its Lowest Ever

Walking Dead S9 Finale Its Lowest Ever

AMC’s zombie apocalypse series “The Walking Dead” continues its steady dive with Sunday night’s ninth season finale proving to sink to an all-time finale low for the show.

Titled ‘The Storm,’ the episode raked in 5 million viewers overall and 1.9 rating in the key demo. That’s down by 37% in viewers and 44% in the key demo from the eighth season finale in mid-April last year. It’s also down by 16% on the worst finale before this point – the first season ender in 2010.

The show has already been renewed for a tenth season with a new spinoff and several Andrew Lincoln-led Rick Grimes movies on the way. The series also remains the top-rated show on cable and top tier on TV overall, but a long way from the series high of 17.3 million for the fifth season opener.

Part of that though is timeshifting. The series has gone up an average of 47% in viewers and 52% in the key demo in Live + 3 numbers. The current season has seen the show’s biggest rates of time-shifted results to date.
