'Walking Dead' once again beats 'Sunday Night Football'
Once again, zombies have tackled the NFL. AMC’s The Walking Dead has managed to beat NBC’s top-rated Sunday Night Football in the key adult demo.
Sunday night’s fourth episode of the season delivered 14.5 million viewers and an incredible 7.6 rating among adults 18-49. By comparison, SNF had about 17 million viewers and a 6.1 in the demo during a 20-point blowout win for the Steelers (these live ratings will change in the more accurate nationals, but the demo number is unlikely surpass TWD). AMC’s Talking Dead post-show did well too, with about 6 million viewers. EW previously devoted an entire post to putting The Walking Dead‘s enormous ratings into context.
