Yes, “The Walking Dead’s” ratings are falling since its big season premiere, and the Nov. 27 episode dipped to a four-year low in the overnight ratings.

It’s also true that it’s still the No. 1 show on cable by a long shot, even in its lower-than-usual state. Case in point: With three days of DVR and on-demand viewing, the Nov. 27 episode grew by 2.0 points. That’s as big or bigger than the three-day total for all but one other cable show, “Monday Night Football.”

Down? Yes. Out? Hardly.
