The Walking Dead Ratings: AMC Show Beats Football For Second Consecutive Week
The Walking Dead is on a ratings roll, and not even Sunday Night Football can slow the AMC powerhouse down. Per The Hollywood Reporter, the November 3 episode of TWD — “Indifference” — brought in about 13.3 million viewers, an increase of about 300,00 over the previous week. Looks like plenty of people wanted to find out what Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) had in store for Carol (Melissa McBride).
Roughly 8.7 million of those 13 million viewers were from the coveted 18-49 demo, giving TWD and eight percent lead over Sunday Night Football and marking the second consecutive week that the zombie drama outperformed the sports staple. What’s more? Sunday’s broadcast was the highest-rated TV show of the last week. Get it, Team Prison.
However, Sunday Night Football did manage to garner more viewers overall. But when you factor in viewers watching at a later date via DVR, TWD isn’t that far behind. In fact, with DVR factored in The Walking Dead Season 4 is “easily ranking as the top show on all of TV.”
Are you pleased to hear that TWD is still going strong four weeks into Season 4? Share your excitement below!
The Walking Dead airs Sunday nights at 9 p.m. ET on AMC.
