Apparently 10% of “The Walking Dead’s” record-breaking viewers are hate-watching Season 7. According to the poll we ran after the mid-season finale, a tenth of our readers voted that the first half of this season is the “worst show on TV.” While that’s rough, the results aren’t all negative for the AMC zombie drama. Scroll down to see where the other 90% of votes fall in our “The Walking Dead” poll results.
“I. Am. Obsessed!” say 8% of our readers, proving that even though “The Walking Dead” has its fair share of hate watchers, it still has a strong appeal to its core fan base who eagerly await its return on February 12. Five percent of people say the show is “close to perfection,” while 12% think it’s “very impressive,” and a whopping 20% agree that it’s “quite good.” Meanwhile, 12% of fans say that “it’s just okay,” with 15% voting simply “meh.”
After that, things get rough. Ten percent say Season 7 is “kinda bad” while 6% of readers think it’s “pretty terrible.” A small portion (2%) voted that it’s “practically unwatchable” and then 10% chose “worst show on TV,” rounding out our poll results. What do you think about the current season of “The Walking Dead”? Does Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) make the show better or worse? Sound off in the comments section below.
“The Walking Dead” has had a so-so Emmy Awards record, winning only two trophies for Outstanding Prosthetic Makeup (2011-2012). But the tide may be shifting in terms of awards recognition. At this year’s Critics’ Choice Awards, Morgan won Best Drama Guest Performer. The producers should be careful if they’re intending for Morgan to enter the guest Emmy category he can only appear in two more episodes before he will have to be switched over to the supporting category, thanks to the relatively new 50% rule.
