'The Walking Dead' Season 8 Finale Nets Lowest Ratings Since Season 1

'The Walking Dead' Season 8 Finale Nets Lowest Ratings Since Season 1

And some beloved characters from The Walking Dead showed up at the beginning of the episode to say goodbye to Morgan.

While the 70-minute capper eclipsed everything else on the tube Sunday night-TNT's live coverage of the Houston Rockets' 104-101 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves in the National Basketball Association playoffs was a distant second with a 1.9 rating-the audience deliveries didn't measure up to previous "Walking Dead" finales.

Season 8 of the series as a whole averaged a 3.4 and 7.8 million viewers in Live+Same Day, down from Season 7's average approximately the same percentages as the Season 8 finale compared to the Season 7 finale.

Mr Sablin also said Mr Assad accepted an invitation to visit the Siberian region of Khanty-Mansi in Russian Federation . But late Saturday, senior administration officials called the evidence "incontrovertible".

Madison may have her problems, but lack of affection for her children is not one of them (in fact, the biggest complaint about Madison through the first three seasons was how much she smothered her children).

Season 1 premiered on Halloween, but seasons 2-6 premiered in the second week of October before pushing it back a week into October for seasons 7-8. Up 18% in total viewership from the April 8 penultimate "Worth" episode, TWD's Season 8 ender snared 4.4 million in the 18-49 demo it has so long dominated to hit a 3.4 rating. Evil Dead improved slightly to a 0.08 rating with 175k total viewers, but that show is now firmly On the Bubble. That is up approximately 21% in the demo and 18% in total viewers versus last week.

Because The Walking Dead fans are among the most passionate and dedicated groups in the world, I know that will be the case for those wondering when The Walking Dead season 9 will premiere. Be sure to follow the Cancelled Sci Fi Twitter Site for the latest results and to stay tuned as we approach the countdown to season end in May. Season 4 of Fear The Walking Dead is on pace to be the most compelling and most cohesive season of the show yet.
