'The Walking Dead' Season 9 Premiere Lowest-Rated in Show's History

The good news is that Skybound Games plans to bring on the development team from Telltale to finish the final two episodes of The Walking Dead: The Final Season, but Variety reports that nothing has been finalized. Among adults 18-49, the show was down 51 percent.

The Walking Dead, which entered its ninth season this week, had the smallest number of live viewers of any season of the show. The Season 9 premiere snagged a 2.5 rating in the 18-49 demographic, the lowest rating for a premiere in the demo in the show's history.

Oil prices gain as Iranian crude exports fall, Hurricane Michael nears
The supply picture right now is currently looking worrisome, with Venezuela and Iran supporting to drive prices higher. Brent crude futures rose $1.09 to settle at $85.00 a barrel, a 1.30 percent gain.

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.

Year to year, the Season 9 premiere of TWD was down a further 14% in total audience from the fall the Season 8 opener saw after the series' near all-time high of the double death Season 7 debut of October 23, 2016.

Though these numbers show a stark downward trend for AMC, its Premiere online subscription service had its biggest single day for new signups after the premiere episode was made available a full day prior to its televised debut. But that's still a steep drop from the series' heyday in seasons three through seven, which regularly pulled in double-digit numbers and topped out at 17.29 million viewers for the Season 5 premiere.

The Season Nine premiere will likely see a significant boost in numbers when DVR and on-demand viewings are included in Live+3 ratings.

Kavanaugh also noted the first group of clerks he's hired as a justice are all women, a first in the history of the Supreme Court. That's a sign that at least on the House side, the Kavanaugh fights may have had a negligible effect on the overall battle.

Weeks after Telltale Games announced it would be laying off a majority of its staff, another studio has revealed that it will be finishing the final season of Telltale's The Walking Dead adventure game series.
