walking-dead-weekly-ratings-nov-2-8

 

Although “The Walking Dead” was down week to week in both adults 18-49 and viewers, it still led in both measures for the week of Nov. 2-8. Without any presidential debates, it was able to reclaim the viewer title, just ahead of “Monday Night Football.”

The NFL Network became the sole home for “Thursday Night Football” this week, and ratings accordingly jumped. A pair of Hallmark Channel Christmas movies also cracked the viewer rankings.
