We’ve got a trio of different shows that we want to get to in this edition of cable ratings, with Fear the Walking Dead leading the way alongside Claws season 2 and Into the Badlands. Why not go ahead and dive right in here?
Fear the Walking Dead – There is a small bit of good news here, as the zombie drama generated a 0.7 rating in the 18-49 demographic for its midseason finale. That’s a nice recovery from the season-low outing the week before, but it does still make us wonder why this show’s ratings have declined despite it being the best year that it has ever had.
With that said, we are a little more concerned about its immediate future in the aftermath of some of the craziness that happened at the end of this past episode. How could you be anything other than worried now in regards to the future? The positive news, at least for now, is that Fear the Walking Dead is at least outpacing at the moment its performance from season 3.
Claws – Meanwhile, the TNT series may be one of the bigger cable hits that not enough people are talking about. Sunday’s premiere episode generated a 0.5 rating and 1.3 million viewers. This is up both from the series premiere a year ago and also the season 1 average. If Claws keeps this going, we have a feeling that this is a show that is going to stick around for quite some time. It appeals to young viewers arguably more than the vast majority of shows that this network has had in a while.
Into the Badlands – Finally, the other AMC series on this list also recovered slightly from its past outing, posting a 0.3 rating and also 1.06 million viewers. Its biggest test is going to come next week, as it will be airing without a new Fear the Walking Dead episode before it.
What do you think about this latest batch of cable ratings? Be sure to share right now in the comments.
