walking-dead-s6-premiere

The Season 6 premiere of “The Walking Dead” was down some from the all-time highs of its year-ago debut — which is not to say it’s not still huge, because it is. Sunday’s show was the No. 1 show on all of TV for the week with a 7.4 rating in adults 18-49, to go with 14.63 million viewers.

Those numbers are down from the series highs of an 8.7 demo rating (same-day) and 17.29 million viewers for the Season 5 opener. It was also down from the 8.2 and 15.78 million for last season’s finale.

“Walking Dead”-related programming, however, dominated the night —  “Talking Dead” ranked second in adults 18-49, and repeats of the show held spots 3-5.
