‘Fear The Walking Dead’ Smashes Cable Ratings Records With Live + 3 Days Results
13.3 Million Viewers – 7.3 rating
The August 23 premiere of The Walking Dead spin-off ‘Fear The Walking Dead’ was watched by 13.3 million total viewers and 8.5 million among adults 18-49 in the watched within 3 days of broadcast L+3 ratings. My estimate is a 7.3 rating in the 18-49 dollar demo advertisers crave for.
It’s only the first ep results but it currently ranks up there with Sunday night NFL & the original ‘TWD’. If it dropped down to a 6.0 demo average rating over the 6 episode rookie season run it would still be the number 3 scripted show on TV after the you guessed it ‘The Walking Dead’ (7.3) & ‘Empire (7.1).
