“The Walking Dead” bounced back a little bit from its five-year low on Sunday. The show recorded a 4.9 rating among adults 18-49 and 10.68 million viewers, up from 4.7 and 10.16 million the previous week. It was once again the No. 1 show for the day by a wide margin.
“The Real Housewives of Atlanta” ticked up a tenth of a point to 1.2, and “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” returned to E! with a 0.7. “Homeland” (0.4) dipped a tenth of a point for Showtime.
HBO’s “Big Little Lies” was steady at 0.4 but finished just outside the Top 25 thanks in part to several college and basketball telecasts on ESPN moving up. Episode 2 of “Feud: Bette and Joan” on FX took a hit, falling two tenths to 0.3 among adults 18-49 and losing almost a million viewers (2.26 million to 1.32 million) from its premiere.
