Update: in preliminary numbers Sunday night’s episode drew a 7.1 adults 18-49 rating and 13.9 million viewers.
Last week, The Walking Dead returned to a giant 8.2 adults 18-49 rating. Usually, a show’s ratings decline a bit after the premiere, but The Walking Dead breaks all the established rules of television. Since the American League Championship Series concluded last night, FOX will be airing reruns tonight, which should be signifigantly less competition than a game 7 featuring the Red Sox would have been. Sunday Night Football’s match-up, featuring the undefeated Broncos versus the Colts may make some fans of both football and zombies decide to DVR TWD for later viewing. So how do you think the The Walking Dead will do tonight? Make your prediction!
