fear-the-walking-dead-season-2bRatings Results of Interest: On Sunday, AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead returned from its mid-season hiatus, but its numbers were down to a series low at a 1.6 rating rating based on the overnights for the 18-49 demographic with 3.9 million total viewers. It did have to go up against the Olympics closing ceremonies, but that pulled lower ratings than the typical night of Olympics coverage and The Walking Dead never blinked when it had to go up against top-rated NFL games. Still, FtWD was the highest rated show on cable for the night and second highest rated overall among non-Olympics programming (behind NBC’s The Voice), and it has already been renewed for a third season. TNT’s The Last Ship picked up speed and improved almost a full tick to a 0.57 rating w/2.3 million total viewers despite strong competition on the night. On Friday, Syfy’s Dark Matter improved a bit to a 0.19 rating w/660k total viewers and Killjoys held mostly steady at a 0.17 rating with 600k total viewers. Both of those look to have a decent chance of surviving to a third season. On Wednesday, USA’s Mr. Robot improved slightly to a 0.25 rating with 650k total viewers. That one has already been renewed for a third season.  Read the full article at our partner site
