Season 7 for The Walking Dead has been a tumultuous one for the zombie drama. 17 million people tuned in for the seventh season premiere, making it the second highest rated episode in the show’s history.
But after several episodes, the show lost millions upon millions of viewers and ended up with 7 million fewer viewers per episode, which is numbers that have not happened since the show’s third season.
Following a midseason break, The Walking Dead looked like it was going to turn things around and bring back the action that made the show popular. Rick and the gang are back together and ready to fight villainous Negan and his group of cronies. The episode ended up bring 12 million viewers, but just a few episodes later, the show has hit a four-year low point, with 10.16 million viewers.
