    ‘The Walking Dead’ Ratings Thrash ‘Sunday Night Football’ For Third Week In A Row

    Well, this is becoming a bit of a weekly tradition now, isn’t it? For a third consecutive week and the fourth time this season, The Walking Dead has solidly beat Sunday Night Football among adults 18-49. In the sixth episode of its fifth season, the blockbuster AMC series drew a 7.3 rating among the key demo while the New England Patriots’ 42-20 win over the Indianapolis Colts got a 6.2. That’s a 15% spread.

    The Walking Dead
    bopped up 4% in the demo from last week. Demo-to-demo in the 9 PM hour, Walking Dead drew 9.22 million, while SNF pulled in 8.1 million with a rating of 6.4.
    Undoubtedly due to the blowouts that have been frequent of late on SNF and the amazing traction the zombie-apocalypse series has shown, last night’s results now doubles the number of times Walking Dead has taken down NBC’s flagship NFL show compared with last season. The Walking Dead’s first victory over SNF this season was on October 12, when its Season 5 debut got a 8.7 to the NFL game’s 6.6 final national result.

    Last night’s SNF’s numbers likely will go up in the final nationals, but even that will see WD still come out on top. Last night’s game was even in fast nationals with the week before, when the Green Bay Packers solidly beat the Chicago Bears. That November 9 game went up to 6.5 in final nationals — easily still behind The Walking Dead.

    In terms of overall viewers, Walking Dead had an audience of n1early 4.1 million last night. With only two more Sunday matchups before WD goes on hiatus, the question now is who will be the ratings Super Bowl champ when all is said and done on November 30, Sunday Night Football or The Walking Dead? We’re taking your bets.

    Walking dead is a monster. There are endless story ideas, you can swap out characters left and right no one cares. Monster.

    The ratings are thanks to inertia, because the last two episodes have not been stellar if we're being honest. Stretching the seasons out now by devoting entire episodes to one or two people off doing their own thing reminds me of what Lost starting doing more and more along its slide into complete shit, not even factoring the annoying flashback episodes.

    When this show spends too much time away from Rick & crew, it gets into trouble.

    This. At this point I just don't give a shit about character backstory and what they do away from the group.

    In fairness, Andrew Luck looks like a rotting corpse. Maybe a lot of people tuned into The Walking Dead and thought it was the Colts game.

    As compared to Telltale's The Walking Dead, I've grown to despise AMC's version, but still can't help myself, and enjoy the view of this massive trainwreck every week...
