    I don't understand AMC's mentality in splitting Walking/Talking dead down the middle and shoving Into The Badlands between them. Just seems utterly daft and a poke in the eye for TWD fans' Sunday night telly ritual.

    They did the exact same thing when that show was brand new. Why are they still doing it? Into The Badlands doesn't need more of this type of forceful "down your throat whether you like it or not" promotion.

    Aye, I remember the flack it got as a result of the way AMC was pushing it on the audience - which made their decision to do it all over again even more asinine.

    Aye, especially with +3 and +7 numbers included. Seems that there are some viewers who are shifting towards time-shift viewing of TWD. There is a hell of a lot of competition out there, and Season 5 was the peak. I'm sure this is the sort of thing that happens to most shows. They'll inevitably peak somewhere along the line, and ratings tend to slip further into the run up to the final episode.

    However, "slip" is relative, and these figures remain mighty. Fear The Walking Dead is heading into it's fourth season bumbling about the 2m/2.5m zone for live ratings, despite showing a consistent slide downwards since the first season (it bottomed out at 1.9m in Season 3B IIRC before ticking up a few hundred thousand by the closer).

    Reading some of the comments on there you just have to shake your head. Yeah, sure, introduce a major villain and just kill him off a couple of episodes later ... 'cos that's how dramatic storytelling works.

    Next week's will be interesting to see, and I am wary of articles on this subject because it becomes "the narrative", it becomes something for the media to beat up on a popular franchise with. The Batman v Superman/Suicide Squad/Wonder Woman trajectory in the media coverage was blatantly plotted/orchestrated for clickbait ... but that's another rant entirely.

    Ratings are #1 and you think its gonna get cancelled? Don't make me laugh.
    And don't forget DVR +3, +7 and App views are the highest it's ever been. More people are choosing to watch it later which I don't blame them with the way they have been structuring the commericals with the show lately.
    I 'time shift' regularly because of the irritant that is advertising, and here in the UK we have a legal maximum of ads per hour (basically no more than 15 mins per hour). However, at least our ad slots aren't as numerous, either, as they are in America (where, I believe, they have shorter breaks but more regular breaks), which can really screw up the momentum if you're always cutting away to an ad break. I recognise that it's a double-edged sword - because the ads help pay for the show - but AMC, it would seem like, need to change up their approach to commercials to make them less intrusive.

    Off on a tangent, but look at Impractical Jokers - in America it gets three advert breaks inside a half hour slot. Here in the UK? One. I'm not sure how many breaks crop up in TWD over there, but here in the UK it's three over the course of an hour slot roughly every fifteen minutes.

    One of the most consistent, recurring complaints I've seen connected with TWD here on HPOTD is regarding the sheer volume of commercials. I reckon some restructuring of how they do ad breaks could shake things up a bit.

    Anyway, good to see a little up-tick in the ratings (which are still far ahead of the competition).
