Last week’s “The Walking Dead” enjoyed gains in adults 18-49 and overall viewership.

This week’s episode gave back those gains — and then some.

According to live+same-day data posted by Showbuzz, Sunday’s “TWD” drew a 3.42 adults 18-49 rating and averaged 7.85 million overall viewers.

The numbers trail the 3.87 rating and 8.69 million viewer mark drawn last week. They also trail the 3.79 rating and 8.52 million viewer sum posted by the November 5 episode.

From a live+same-day standpoint, this week’s broadcast was the least-watched episode since season two.

Despite that distinction, it was still Sunday’s #1 cable original in adults 18-49 and overall viewership.

— “The Walking Dead” led into “Talking Dead,” which drew a 1.09 rating and 2.62 million viewers this week. Last week’s “Talking” was good for a 1.28 rating and 3.12 million viewers.
