"The Walking Dead" Season 8 finale rose week-to-week in the Nielsen ratings but still could not overcome the ratings declines that have plagued it for the past few seasons. It's also only 2 million more than the Season 1 finale way back in 2010, though those figures were stellar at the time.

Despite the fact the numbers are less than ideal for the show, it was nevertheless the highest-rated program of the night. Next week's numbers will determine how numerous curious onlookers following Morgan's transition to Fear the Walking Dead will stick around, but for now that one is off to a good start.

Granted in today's rating climate where decline is the norm for nearly everyone except Game of Thrones, the Season 8 finale results are a continuation of a trend that started in Season 6 for TWD, with the double killing Season 7 opener as a notable exception. The parent show posted a 3.4 rating with 7.9 million total viewers which were the best numbers that show has seen since its mid-season premiere. That is up approximately 21% in the demo and 18% in total viewers versus last week.

As a big Netflix watcher, as soon as I finish a season, I have to look up when there will be a new season so I can binge-watch another batch of episodes.

Of course, already renewed for a ninth season and launching a new story arc that is expected to last several years, TWD may be down from the dizzying heights of its fifth season but it is still one of the strongest shows on the small screen.

Because The Walking Dead fans are among the most passionate and dedicated groups in the world, I know that will be the case for those wondering when The Walking Dead season 9 will premiere. Until then, you can circle October 20 on your calendar as the projected return date for The Walking Dead season 9.
