    Ratings: “The Walking Dead” Midseason Premiere Leads Sunday Cable Race, “Better Call Saul” Returns

    Although it was down non-trivially from last year’s midseason premiere, Sunday’s “The Walking Dead” outdrew the fall finale in adults 18-49 and overall viewership. It also gave AMC the Sunday cable crown in both columns.

    According to live+same-day data posted by Showbuzz, the episode drew a 1.20 adults 18-49 rating and averaged 3.52 million overall viewers. The numbers top the 1.02 rating and 3.21 million viewer mark garnered by the fall finale — and actually rank as the show’s best since early in the ongoing 10th season (best demo rating since the second episode, best viewership number since the premiere).

    The February 2019 premiere, as noted, drew a far stronger 2.0 rating and 5.16 million viewer mark. Still, “The Walking Dead” remains a strong from a competitive standpoint. In addition to ranking as cable’s #1 Sunday show, the episode bested nearly all Sunday night broadcast programming in the demo. Only ABC’s “American Idol” fared better.

    It also continues to receive lifts from DVR, on-demand and AMC streaming.

    “TWD” led into night one of the “Better Call Saul” season premiere. The episode drew a 0.49 adults 18-49 rating and averaged 1.60 million overall viewers. The numbers narrowly top the 0.47 rating and 1.53 million viewer mark garnered by the previous season finale, but it is worth noting that said episode aired on a Monday without “TWD” lead-in support.

    Ratings: “Dare Me” Falls To Viewership Low For Episode 8

    After enjoying two consecutive weeks of viewership increases, USA Network’s “Dare Me” endured a ratings decline this week

    According to live+same-day data posted by Showbuzz, Sunday’s episode drew a 0.11 adults 18-49 rating and averaged 0.32 million overall viewers. The numbers trail the 0.13 rating and 0.39 million viewer for last week’s episode, which featured the big victim reveal.

    This week’s viewership figure, moreover, ranks as a new low for the show. The demo rating is the second-worst for the eight episodes; only the second episode fared worse with adults 18-49 (0.09).

    Through its first eight episodes, “Dare Me” has been a fairly steady but unspectacular live+same-day performer. It did, however, face heavy competition for the first several weeks of its run. It numbers are also generally within the ballpark of other recent USA Network launches.

    Billboard Hot 100: Roddy Ricch’s “The Box” Spends 7th Week As #1 Song In America, Dua Lipa Scores First US Top 5

    The very top of this week’s Billboard Hot 100 does not feature a change. Roddy Ricch’s “The Box” again claims the #1 position, scoring its seventh week as America’s hottest overall song. The smash hit remains a multi-dimensional beast, faring impressively for streams, sales and radio.

    The next two slots are also steady, with Future’s “Life Is Good (featuring Drake)” and Post Malone’s “Circles” holding at #3 and #4, respectively.

    Change does, however, kick in starting with the #4 position. Up one place, Tones and I’s “Dance Monkey” earns that ranking.

    An even more momentous change occurs at #5; Dua Lipa’s “Don’t Start Now” takes over that position after claiming #6 in last week. The song surpasses the #6 high-mark of “New Rules” to become Lipa’s first Top 5 hit in the US.

    The balance of the Top 10 is as follows: Arizona Zervas’ “ROXANNE” (#6, +1), Maroon 5’s “Memories” (#7, -3), Lewis Capaldi’s “Someone You Loved” (#8, =), Justin Bieber’s “Intentions (featuring Quavo)” (#9, +2) and The Weeknd’s “Blinding Lights” (#10, +2).
