The return of “The Walking Dead” dominated the cable ratings for the week of Oct. 5-11. Although it was down some from its prior season premiere (7.4 vs. 8.7 last year), it still finished more than two points ahead of second-place “Monday Night Football.”

The premiere of “American Horror Story: Hotel” also did well, earning a 3.0 in adults 18-49 to finish third.
