“The Walking Dead” put up ratings on Sunday that were the show’s lowest since the late stages of its second season more than five years ago.

The show was still Sunday’s biggest draw on cable by a long shot, but its 4.0 rating among adults 18-49 was the lowest for the show since March 11, 2012 — the next-to-last episode of Season 2. “TWD’s” 8.92 million viewers were the least since the Season 2 finale.

Other cable series took a hit Sunday as well, perhaps in part due to a highly rated World Series game on FOX. “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” (0.4) was off a tenth of a point in adults 18-49 dipped under a million viewers. “Outlander” (0.3, 1.52 million viewers) was also down (vs. 0.4 and 1.7 million) after several weeks of viewer growth.

“Curb Your Enthusiasm” (0.3) fell out of the top 25, and the finale of “The Deuce” (0.2, 771,000) was off a bit from previous weeks.
