fear-twd-weekly-aug-22-16

“Fear the Walking Dead” came in at a series low among adults 18-49 with its Season 2b premiere, but it was still enough to lead the demographic for the week of Aug. 21.

The show’s 1.6 rating was three tenths of a point better than “Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood,” which finished second. “Rizzoli & Isles” (3.87 million) won the viewer race by the narrowest of margins, beating “Fear” by just 3,000 viewers.
