'The Walking Dead' Ratings Hit A New Series Low

'The Walking Dead' Ratings Hit A New Series Low

There was a time when The Walking Dead was the biggest thing on TV.

The second episode of season nine, titled The Bridge, received a 2.0 rating in the key demographic of adults aged 18-49, according to Deadline. The previous low was 2.4 back in Season 1, which was easily the least-watched year of the series.

"Rick is forced to face the past as he struggles to maintain the safety of the communities and protect the future he and Carl envisioned". That is also very close to the show's current low in total viewers, which is 4.7 million, also set during season one. "The Bridge" also managed to drop 20% of its audience from the Season 9 premiere. It's the second worst ever to 4.7 million, also in the first season.

Potential spoilers for The Walking Dead's upcoming episodes follow. It was down approximately 50% in the key demo [2.5 million] and 47% in total viewers [6.08 million] compared to the season eight opener. After the Season 7 premiere brutally offed Glenn and Abraham, The Walking Dead dropped from 17 million to 12.5 viewers. And yes, those numbers go up with streaming and DVR and all that.

Airing Sundays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on AMC, The Walking Dead stars Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Lauren Cohan, Danai Gurira, Melissa McBride, Lennie James, Alanna Masterson, Josh McDermitt, Christian Serratos and Jeffrey Dean Morgan.
