AMC’s The Walking Dead aired its fourth Season 7 episode this past Sunday and saw its ratings drop yet again, this time to a 5.4 score based on the overnights for the 18–49 demographic. That is a 28 percent drop from the show’s season debut which pulled an 8.4 rating, the second highest numbers TWD has seen across its seven seasons. Of course, even after Sunday’s drop, the show is still by far the highest-rated scripted series on all of television, so AMC isn’t crying too much about the numbers at this point. TWD is at its lowest levels since its third season and this is clearly a sign that the recent backlash against it (more on that below) has impacted viewership. It still has plenty of leeway at this point and also quite a number of fan-favorite stories from the comics ahead of it, so a rebound is definitely possible, but AMC and the creative staff should take note that the drop in viewership clearly indicates that fans are not happy with some of the show’s recent miscalculations.
