Ratings: AMC’s “The Walking Dead” Holds Fairly Steady This Week

Even in the adults 18-49 demographic and down by less than 1% in total viewership, “The Walking Dead” held rather steady for Sunday’s penultimate season five episode.

Sunday’s edition of the AMC flagship drew a 7.0 adults 18-49 rating with 13.76 million viewers. The performance was a near mirror image of that delivered by the previous week’s installment.

Airing on March 15, that previous episode posted a 7.0 rating with 13.78 million viewers.

“Talking Dead,” which aired out of “TWD,” drew a 2.9 with 6.02 million viewers. That show, too, held fairly steady — last week’s episode scored a 3.0 with 5.93 million viewers.

“The Walking Dead” concludes its fifth season with a 90 minute finale on March 29.
