A few more people watched the March 26 episode of “The Walking Dead” the night it aired than did the previous week. Not quite as many people caught up with the show within three days of its airing.

The result, however, is still a small gain for the show. “The Walking Dead” sits at a 6.6 rating after three days of DVR and on-demand viewing, up from 6.5 the previous week. Its total viewer count is also up (14.01 million vs. 13.88 million). It grew by 1.7 points in the 18-49 demo and 3.46 million viewers vs. 1.8 and 3.55 million the previous week.

 

TBS’ NCAA Elite Eight game between Oregon and Kansas remains No. 2 in both measures with a 2.8 and 9.35 million viewers.
