“The Walking Dead” held onto the no. 1 spot in the Sunday cable ratings, but fell to a new series low.

With its penultimate episode of the season, the long-running AMC series dropped from the 1.7 it had scored the week before to a 1.5 rating in adults 18-49, an all-time low in the demo for the zombie drama.

TNT and TBS’ combined NCAA tournament coverage grabbed seven of the night’s top 25 spots. TNT’s broadcast of the Ohio State vs. Houston game landed highest with a 1.1 rating and 3.57 million viewers.

Elsewhere, Bravo’s “Real Housewives of Atlanta” managed to stay even with another 0.8, and Discovery’s “Naked and Afraid” slipped from a 0.5 to a 0.4. Meanwhile, the midseason premiere of AMC’s “Into the Badlands” posted a 0.4 with 1.25 million viewers, up from its midseason finale’s 0.3 and 894,000 viewers last June.

Outside of the top 25, Showtime’s “Billions” (0.2), Starz’s “American Gods” (0.1), and HBO’s “The Case Against Adnan Syed” (0.2) all held steady week-to-week.
