Where To Watch The Walking Dead Season 8 Episode 16 Online

While the Season 8 finale of The Walking Dead led into a highly-anticipated, gimmick-laden episode of Fear the Walking Dead, the AMC zombie show couldn't shake an issue that's been plaguing it for years. Setting aside the fact that the show was renewed for a ninth season back in January, "Dead" is far too vital a resource for AMC to snuff out any time soon. "But that is also down 37% in the demo and 30% in total viewers from the Season 7 finale a year ago".

Fear The Walking Dead returned for season 4 last night with some new characters and one character that crossed over from The Walking Dead.

Granted in today's rating climate where decline is the norm for nearly everyone except Game of Thrones, the Season 8 finale results are a continuation of a trend that started in Season 6 for TWD, with the double killing Season 7 opener as a notable exception. Just a year ago, the show finished its seventh rotation in front of 11.3 million live-same-day viewers and a 5.4 rating, which adjusted down to a 5.0 upon application of the C3 currency.

Obviously, the big herd of walkers is not something we haven't seen before in the world of "The Walking Dead", but given who the next big villains in the comics are, there might be more to this scene than meets the eye. Over on FOX, The Last Man on Earth slipped to a 0.6 rating with 1.4 million total viewers while NBC's Timeless slipped to a 0.5 rating with 2.5 million total viewers. But that is also down 37% in the demo and 30% in total viewers from the Season 7 finale past year.

This was also the lowest-rated season of "The Walking Dead" since the show's six-episode first flight ran in fall 2010. Until then, you can circle October 20 on your calendar as the projected return date for The Walking Dead season 9.
