‘Walking Dead’ Ratings Steady With 2015 & World Series In Season 7 Week 2
Coming off the rich hype of the cliffhanger resolving Season 7 premiere of last week, it was inevitable that
was going to take a ratings hit on Sunday. Add to that the zombie apocalypse blockbuster was fighting a massively watched World Series Game 5 that had Chicago on edge if the Cubs would survive to battle Cleveland another day and the nationally followed Dallas Cowboys vs. the Philadelphia Eagles going into OT on

the top show on cable and in a fight for the number #2 spot in both broadcast and cable – with the AMC show swinging that Lucille named bat of villain Negan.
The cabler is expected to release Live + 3 numbers for Sunday’s
later this week. If past episodes of the series are any indication, delayed viewing could prove the power of
’s fanbase on a night when a lot of America was on the field one way or another.
