Cancellation Watch: Fear the Walking Dead Returns Strong for its Fourth Season

How long is TWD tonight

Don't worry, there won't be any spoilers in this article, so if you haven't seen the season 8 finale of The Walking Dead yet, we reveal and big details so you can read along without worry. But according to Deadline, it made for the lowest-rated finale since the show's first. They will upload the season finale to the website once it's aired on TV and it's free to stream.

Fear the Walking Dead got a nice bump in viewership thanks to its cast shakeup, but TWD's "Wrath" only had 7.9m viewers, which, though nothing to sneeze at, is more than a 30 percent decrease from Season 7's finale.

Season 8 of the series as a whole averaged a 3.4 and 7.8 million viewers in Live+Same Day, down from Season 7's average approximately the same percentages as the Season 8 finale compared to the Season 7 finale.

You can also buy, download and streaming episodes of The Walking Dead from Amazon and iTunes.

While the 70-minute capper eclipsed everything else on the tube Sunday night-TNT's live coverage of the Houston Rockets' 104-101 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves in the National Basketball Association playoffs was a distant second with a 1.9 rating-the audience deliveries didn't measure up to previous "Walking Dead" finales.

All eight seasons have premiered in October.

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. Until then, you can circle October 20 on your calendar as the projected return date for The Walking Dead season 9.

As much as ratings erosion is about as inevitable and inescapable as the Big Dirt Nap, fans of "The Walking Dead" have no reason to fear that it's in any danger of disappearing from AMC's schedule.
