Robert Kirkman will pay to finish Walking Dead game

Walking Dead season 9 premiere loses nearly half its audience

It's also a 50 percent drop even just from the premiere for past year.

Robert Kirkman, the original creator and writer for The Walking Dead comic series, has announced that he has negotiated to acquire the license for the last few episodes of The Walking Dead game from the now-defunct Telltale Games.

Down 27 percent in the demo and 23 percent in the audience over the season eight finale, and down 50 percent in the demo and 47 percent in audience size over the season eight premiere, the downtick in both rating and audience size continues a long-running and alarming trend that has plagued the series in recent seasons. The Hollywood Reporter reports that the premiere achieved a 2.5 rating among adults ranging from 18-49. AMC's hit series was looking decidedly less monstrous in its season nine debut, scoring a 2.5 rating in the 18 - 49 demographic and 6.1 million total viewers. In comparison, the Season 8 premiere brought in 11.44 million viewers.

India vs West Indies live scores first Test day three
Tail-ender Keemo Paul , in only his second Test, bludgeoned a four and a six in an unbeaten 13 to see West Indies to the close. Deciding to bowl Kuldeep Yadav in the second test despite Ashwin running riot is a positive sign in Kohli in the captain.

Goldman Sachs downgraded AMC to a sell from a neutral rating late last week, and yesterday the stock fell more than 7% after the premiere numbers were released. These numbers make the season 9 opener stand as the lowest-rated premiere in the history of the series.

This season's premiere is also flirting with a tie for the series low in the key demo, which was a 2.4 set back during Season 1.

To be fair, it's still one of the biggest shows on television, behind only This Is Us in key demo ratings. TL;DR: The number of people watching The Walking Dead Season 9 is almost back to the number of people who watched the show in Season 1, when it was first getting off the ground. Among them are the repetitive storylines, Negan's continued presence, and the lackluster zombie action.
