Cable Live +3 ratings, Aug. 15-21: ‘Fear the Walking Dead,’ ‘Rizzoli & Isles’

fear-the-walking-dead-ratings-aug-22-16

The return of “Fear the Walking Dead” came in at its lowest same-day rating ever, and it’s adding viewers at a somewhat slower pace in delayed viewing as well.

The AMC show had the biggest adults 18-49 gain for the week of Aug. 15-21, growing by 0.9 points (1.6 to 2.5). That’s behind what “Fear” typically added during its spring run, which tended to grow by 1.1 to 1.3 after three days.

The show also led the overall 18-49 standings, finished second to TNT’s “Rizzoli & Isles” in viewers, and added the third-most viewers, behind “Major Crimes” and “Rizzoli & Isles.”

“Fear the Walking Dead’s” DVR lift, incidentally, would have tied for 18th in the straight Live +3 rankings on cable.
