“The Walking Dead” fans are a loyal bunch. In our earlier poll asking you to rate Season 7 from from 10 to 1, more people said that they’re still in love with the show than those who voted negatively. In fact, 17% said they’re “obsessed” with “The Walking Dead” and gave it a perfect score of 10/10, while another 8% gave the show a 9/10 score admitting that it’s “close to perfection.” At the other end of the spectrum, only 7% of so-called fans voted for the lowest option of 1/10, the “worst show on TV.” Sound off in the comments section below to let us know what you thought of the seventh season of “The Walking Dead.”
Rounding out all of the poll options, 14% of readers voted that Season 7 was “very impressive,” while 8% said that it was “quite good.” New bad guy Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) is likely responsible for those positive results, as he changed the entire dynamic of the series by threatening the lives of our heroes, including Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and Carl (Chandler Riggs). Another 14% of fans choose the “okay” option, 7% said “meh,” 11% opted for “kinda bad,” 10% picked “pretty terrible” and 4% clicked “practically unwatchable.”
The TV ratings for the Season 7 finale, titled “The First Day of the Rest of Your Life,” are in and the episode nabbed more than 11 million viewers. While most networks would kill for those kinds of numbers, that’s actually down from 14 million that watched the Season 6 finale and 15 million that tuned in for the Season 5 capper. It’s no surprise that “The Walking Dead” is shedding viewers as it ages, so AMC shouldn’t be too worried at the drop, at least not yet.
