'Walking Dead' Season 9 Premiere Delivers Series Low for Premiere

The less-than-stellar ratings also marked the first time since season one that a season premiere has not garnered more than 10 million viewers. Moreover, the Season 9 opener's 2.5 rating places the series dangerously close to its all-time key demo low of 2.4, which occurred during Season 1, back when it was still an experimental 6-episode fall 2010 season offering. That "The Day Will Come When You Won't Be" episode had just more than 17 million viewers, and was virtually tied with the Season 5 debut.
Even zombies aren't immune from the ratings erosion virus spreading throughout TV land: The Walking Dead began its ninth season with just 6.1 million same-day viewers Sunday, losing roughly half the audience which showed up for the season-eight premiere a year ago. It's also a 51% free-fall from what the series based on Robert Kirkman's comics drew for the Season 8 opener in the demo arena it has dominated for ages. It's also down almost 2 million viewers from April's Season 8 finale. And while secondary to the human toll it took on everyone who suddenly found themselves out of work, it also left fans of The Walking Dead video game in the dark about what would happen with the last, unfinished episodes for The Final Season, the conclusion of Clementine's story. If you signed up for the cabler's $5 a month 2017 launched AMC Premiere service this weekend you got access to "A New Beginning" a full day before it was played on the traditional small screen at 9 PM ET on October 7. While the numbers for AMC Premiere viewers have not yet been released (unclear if they will be), the audience which narrowly topped 6 million live viewers for the weakest premiere in the series' history might not be an accurate indication of the show's strength.
The Season Nine premiere will likely see a significant boost in numbers when DVR and on-demand viewings are included in Live+3 ratings.
