Sunday cable ratings: ‘Fear the Walking Dead’ Season 2 premieres to series low

fear-the-walking-dead-ratings-april-10-16

The good news for “Fear the Walking Dead” is that its Season 2 premiere Sunday was the night’s No. 1 show on TV, cable or broadcast, by a pretty wide margin.

The bad news is that its 3.1 rating is a series low, way down from the 4.9 for its premiere in August 2015 and off 0.3 from the Season 1 finale in October.

Also Sunday, the MTV Movie Awards were even with the 0.8 for last year’s show. NBA TV got a 1.0 — way above its usual numbers — for the Golden State-San Antonio game in which the Warriors tied the single-season wins record.
