Last weekend, the creator of The Walking Dead and also the founder of Skybound Entertainment Robert Kirkman confirmed Skybound Games would be taking over the publishing and development of The Final Season. While the numbers for AMC Premiere viewers have not yet been released (unclear if they will be), the audience which narrowly topped 6 million live viewers for the weakest premiere in the series' history might not be an accurate indication of the show's strength. The Hollywood Reporter reports that the premiere achieved a 2.5 rating among adults ranging from 18-49. In comparison, the season 8 premiere drew a 5.0 rating and 11.4 million viewers past year. The previous low sat at a 2.7 for a series premiere. Moreover, the season 9 opener's 2.5 rating places the series dangerously close to its all-time key demo low of 2.4, which occurred during season 1, back when it was still an experimental 6-episode fall 2010 season offering. It was a staggering 23% drop from the Season Eight finale six months prior. TL;DR: The number of people watching The Walking Dead Season 9 is almost back to the number of people who watched the show in Season 1, when it was first getting off the ground. The show-which was once an absolute juggernaut, competing with broadcast networks to score the highest ratings on any channel-has been on a sharp decline in viewership starting in Season 7, when many fans seemed to agree the show was creatively spinning its wheels. The Live+3 and Live+7 numbers will provide a fuller portrait of how the premiere actually did. AMC also notes it had a record day of sign-ups for its AMC Premiere service, which lets subscribers watch the premiere a day early and without ads.
