National Cable TV show ratings 18-49 and Total Viewers

Compared to past seasons, “The Walking Dead” had a disappointing finale, coming in at its lowest ratings since Season 2. Compared to the rest of cable for the week of March 27, however, the show was head and shoulders above everything else.

The finale’s 5.4 rating among adults 18-49 was more than three times higher than the No. 2 shows — “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” and “Street Outlaws” at 1.6. In viewers, its 11.31 million was almost three times higher than FS1’s NASCAR race at 3.96 million.
