The third-season premiere of “Fear the Walking Dead” is No. 1 in the Live +3 ratings for the week of May 29, but its numbers are way down from where it began Season 2.

The AMC show’s premiere rose by 0.7 points in adults 18-49 with three days of DVR and on-demand viewing to finish with a 1.9 rating. (A second episode also rose by 0.7 to 1.7.) That’s down a heavy 55 percent from the 4.2in Live +3 for the Season 2 premiere last year. It’s also off by 47 percent in viewers (4.66 million vs. 8.83 million last year).

If there’s an upside, it’s that “Fear” made up a little bit of an even bigger decline from the same-day ratings. The night-of airing fell 61 percent from Season 2 (1.2 vs. 3.1).
