Ratings: The Walking Dead Dips in Week 2, But Remains Fall's No. 1 Program

The Walking Dead bled a handful of viewers in its second week of Season 3, yet still has a leg (sorry, Hersh) up on the competition.

The AMC drama this Sunday night drew 9.5 million total viewers, down 13 percent from its boffo season opener. In the coveted 18-49 demo, meanwhile, it claimed 6.5 million viewers — down just 10 percent week-to-week.

As such, the episode stands as the top-rated show of the week, besting even The Voice, The Big Bang Theory and Modern Family. And TWD as a whole holds onto its ranking as the fall season’s top-rated non-sports program.
