The Walking Dead season 9 registers the worst audience since its debut
The series of post-apocalyptic zombie from AMC fall dramatically in the hearings.
AMC may have thought that the imminent departure of two of its main characters (Andrew Lincoln and Lauren Cohan) would result in an increase of enthusiasm among the spectators. Especially as the new producer executrix of the series, Angela Kang, had planned a “back to basics” with a good big share of inspiration from the comics of Robert Kirkman. Which began with the establishment of a new generic for the new season.
There is finally nothing, because it is the opposite that occurs. After a season 8 with the scores historically low since the beginning of the series, this season 9 begins with a hearing catastrophic. Suffice to say, that it is not earned for the following.
“You saw, we are in the process of breaking the mouth in the statistics “
Aired Sunday evening last, the series of Robert Kirkman drew “that” 6,07 million viewers in total for a score of 2.5 (vs. 5 last year) on the 18 to 49 year olds, a priority target of the advertisers.
This represents, at present, the second smallest boot of the series since its inception. At its launch in 2010, The Walking Dead had managed to gather nearly 5.4 million of new curious, but had obtained a better grade (2,7) on the age group 18-49 years.

For information, the launch of the eighth season drew nearly 12 million viewers when it aired in October 2017, and finished with an average of 7.8 million viewers constant. The season 9 of The Walking Dead has managed to lose almost half of its audience from the beginning of its season 8 and early season 9. It should be noted that seasons 3 to 7 were regularly scores prolific 17.2 million viewers during the broadcast of their season premiere
It will therefore monitor very closely the evolution of the numbers of the series led by Angela Kang. Although his fall is quite spectacular, it is important to remember that The Walking Dead still remains at the present time, and from very far away, the show is the most watched of the channel AMC.
