    Holy smoke! RHOA
    BEAST

  • AllOfHerTw!st

    The Walking Dead is falling hard. It probably has only four or five seasons left in it.

  • John A

    That was a good episode of TWD. Not surprised Witches East End dropped. The acting is fairly bad on it.

  • Samuel

    RHOA really is a beast!

  • Samuel

    Not bad for Witches. Performing okay without its usual lead-in.

  • alexia

    RHOA!! Wow! What a monster.

  • john

    Given the monster rating of the football game, I am happy with what Walking Dead did. It is curious,thought, that for the second time this season NBC included erroneous numbers for the Walking Dead in its football press release. The first time it understated Walking Dead’s demo by a full point, this time it said that Walking Dead did only a 5.2. I wonder how that happens?

  • tvd

    this season of walking dead isnt looking good compared to others. in previous seasons it never got lower than the previous seasons highest. e.g season 3 never got lower than season 2’s of 3’s ratings.

  • Targaryen

    TWD only 6.0?oh wait Tbbt cant reach these numbers even on wildest dreams

  • RJ

    After the horrible episode, I’m expecting a big drop-off for The Walking Dead next week.

  • Dillan

    E! have really found a hit with Total Divas. Rating very well without a lead in.

    I really hope Witches of East End gets renewed. :(

    TWD is awful this season, but the drop is a shock considering the episode was about the Governor.

    RHOA is rating amazing this season!

  • j

    This is certainly surprising, below 2 eps from last season.

  • Andies

    Remarkable numbers for the walking dead. NBC, CBS, ABC and Fox would kill to have these numbers… They would kill to have half of that lol…

  • laura

    The RHOA repeat at 10pm got the same rating as the RHOBH premiere last week lol.

  • Richard

    Best episode of Homeland this season! Hopefully this continues.

  • AlanHalliwell

    In my opinion It was the worst episode of the walking dead ever I hate the Govenor I wouldn’t be surprised if it fell again next week as it looks like another all govenor episdoe

  • john

    Yes, The Walking Dead is slightly below 2 episodes from last season that were both record viewership at the time. It does mean it beat out 14 other episodes from last season. Now, if the ratings dont increase in February like they have done the last 2 seasons, then it is possible that the show has reached its ceiling. It is too early to tell that especially when its 18-49 has beat Sunday Night Football every week, when you factor in the Live+ 3 ratings.

  • Janie

    I agree with those that thought this episode of The Walking Dead was so so bad. It was indeed the worst episode of the series IMO. No offense to the Governor, but it was boring boring boring. Sadly I turned it off halfway through because I was so bored and I have NEVER done that ever with any other episode of it. If not showing the regular group at all again next week, I think I will pass and not tune in, which makes me somewhat sad that I would ever want to skip TWD lol.

  • Jeff

    I am not liking this season of TWD all that much, and I am not surprised the ratings are falling. Fans wanted the Governor to die, and if they think they can redeem him while sending Carol away for killing two people who were dying anyway to try to save everyone else, then they are crazy.

  • Patrick Ausgewahlt

    @Targaryen

    The Big Bang Theory got a 6.1 for its second episode this season. It also got a 6.1,6.2,and 6.4 in season 6 as well as hitting an even 6 once in season 3.

    The top comedy and drama on tv can both hit 6’s
