‘The Walking Dead’ Finale Ratings Fall To Lowest Since Season 1; ‘Fear’ Debut Rises

Sunday’s Season 8 finale was almost the least-watched of the AMC zombie apocalypse series. On the flip side, spinoff  Fear the Walking Dead opened its fourth season right after with viewership it hasn’t seen since 2016.twd_816_gp_1114_0579_rt
Pulling in 7.9 million viewers, the April 15 “Wrath” episode of TWD that saw the All-Out War showdown between Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and the Survivors and villain Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) and his Saviors was down just more than 30% from the Season 7 finale of April of 2017.  Put in wider context, that’s even with the all-time-low fall finale of last December and the worst any TWD finale has done since 5.97 million sets of eyeballs watched the Season 1 ender on December 5, 2010.
