One of two shows newly reported to be suffering ratings blows of late might be headed for the axe.
I think you can guess which one it is.
Though both initial ratings blockbusters in their early days, AMC’s “The Walking Dead” and Netflix’s “Fuller House” are said to be putting frowns on the faces of the execs at their networks. In the case of “Fuller House”, which debuted to major ratings in it’s first season, the dip in viewership is quite substantial.
“Walking Dead”, on the other hand, may have seen it’s seventh mid-season finale rating 20% less than last year’s mid-season finale but it still manages to score 15.2 million viewers and a sumly 7.5 rating among adults 18-49 in Live+3 returns.
It ain’t going nowhere.
“Fuller House”, on the other hand, has seen a 70% drop in viewership this [second] season. Stats say only 9% of viewers who watched the first season premiere episode returned for season two’s premiere. Binging of the entire second season also saw a huge decrease for the same period from a 5.3 rating for the first season to a 2.0. Big drop!
Who do you think is safer? D.J or the Dead?
