    Took a hit since last week.

    Unlike last week’s episode, this Sunday’s edition of “The Walking Dead” did not face competition from a World Series game.

    It still suffered week-to-week losses in the live+same-day ratings.

    According to L+SD data posted by Showbuzz, Sunday’s “TWD” drew a 5.68 adults 18-49 rating and 11.72 million total viewers. The numbers trail the 6.09 rating and 12.46 million mark garnered by the previous episode.

    Despite the week-to-week loss, “TWD” was obviously still a monster performer. It was by far the top show on cable Sunday night.​

    I think people are just ready to see the family again and Daryl isn't the viewing draw that TPTB think he is. I'm happy to see that TWD is still bringing in big numbers.

    I have a question is it always been like that the show trying to push Daryl(nothing against him, hes more of a supporting character) unto the audience. This is supposed be a survivor story told and seen through the eyes of Rick, so I'm confused in what exactly the writers are trying to do

    Huh. You mean to tell me the "cash cow" [since his fans LOVE to bring that up anytime his possible death is mentioned] and "the most 'awesome' villain ever known to man" didn't pull in more ratings than that and actually brought down the ratings? LOL Color me surprised.

    I'm glad to see that the show is still pulling in very strong ratings and am confident that this upcoming 'super sized' episode with the larger cast of characters, including the LEAD, will do better.

    And, yes, a tiny corner of my heart just warmed with knowledge that the big bad and his cash cow bff carried an episode that didn't break a ratings record.

    If only Negan was truly a huge factor in that episode, but it was actually quite Dwight-centric. Most people in the GA don't know how bad ass Dwight is, unlike most comic readers, and most hate him for what he is doing or has done to poor little Daryl

    And I have a feeling people prefer a face off between Negan and Rick, not Negan and Daryl, so I am pretty sure this upcoming Sunday will pull people back.

    Well I did see the Rick/Michonne clip like a 1000 times so I think the rating will be better than this past week.
