The third episode of season 9 "Warning Signs" of The Walking Dead had almost exactly the same gain as the previous episode.
The Walking Dead It is consistent where it counts in the classifications. Live views are no longer an accurate measure of the views a program gets due to the huge drops in cable subscriptions and the popularity of the DVR and streaming media, which gives fans other ways to watch the program .
But the third episode of the season. "Warning signs" what had that shocking revelation that it was the Oceanside ladies who killed The Saviors who had almost exactly the same extended vision numbers as the previous episode, "The Bridge."
The "Warning Signs" had a little more live viewers than "The bridge" With little more than 5 million visits. But in Live + 3 the expanded ratings picked up 2.3 million additional views for a total of 7.4 million combined views. It's not surprising that once again it was the number one drama on cable Sunday night for millions of hits.
The consistency of the rebound in the views means that a large number of fans are choosing to watch the program in the three days after its broadcast instead of watching it live on Sunday nights. What it does not mean is that the program numbers are drastically decreasing, as some media say. The walking Dead the ratings are still the highest of any cable television drama and no other cable TV show can even come close to The undead & # 39;s classifications.
Saying goodbye to Rick Grimes
While the extended views for the fourth episode of The Walking Dead this season, "The Obliged" has not yet received the most recent episode with 5.1 million live views, which is the highest number of live shows the program has had since the premiere of season 9.
With fans about to say goodbye to Andrew Lincoln and Rick Grimes in episode 905 this Sunday, it's a sure bet that the extended views for "The Obliged" and the live views for the Sunday episode "What Comes After" will be high
And what comes next? Can the program maintain the kind of views that have kept it as the number one cable drama for all these years without Rick Grimes? There is no reason why I should not. Fans and critics are delighted with the changes that the new driver Angela Kang has brought to the program and the ratings of the program may go down a bit after Rick's departure, but should be matched again quickly.
