The Walking Dead ratings continue to fall as the series loses another 500,000 viewers with its newest episode on AMC.

After 17 million people tuned in for the Walking Dead premire, that number has dropped significantly. The very next episode brought the viewership down to 12.46 million. Since then, it’s gone to 11.72, 11.40, and then settling on 11 million.

So how did the latest episode featuring  Tara do? Well, the ratings continue to drop. The new episode reached only 10.4 million people, according to Bloody-Disgusting. That’s around another half million viewers tuning out of the show.

Negan is expected to be a major player in the next two upcoming episodes, according to Jeffrey Dean Morgan. So hopefully if things start to pick up again, AMC may be able to save their biggest TV show. On the bright side, 10 million viewers is enough to keep The Walking Dead on the air for several more years, unless the rating continue to slip.
