While it still held onto the no. 1 spot in the Sunday cable ratings, “The Walking Dead” fell to a new series low for the second straight week.

The AMC zombie series posted a 1.9 rating in adults 18-49 with 5.04 million viewers, down a tenth from both its last episode and its previous series low. AMC’s “Talking Dead” after show came second in the night with a 0.6. Meanwhile, with its midseason finale, Showtime’s “Shameless” managed to maintain its previous 0.3 yet again. The Jim Carrey-led “Kidding” (0.1) held similarly steady.

On HBO, “The Deuce” was even with another 0.1 as well. “Camping” also matched the 0.1 its series premiere had scored the week before. Elsewhere, BBC America’s “Doctor Who” just barely landed outside of the top 25, falling another tenth from its previous 0.4 to a 0.3.
