The Walking Dead Beats Sunday Night Football In The Ratings Again

The Walking Dead has sacked the NFL yet again.

The fourth episode of Season 5, “Slabtown“ trounced Sunday Night Football's ratings last night, according to Deadline. Netting a 7.6 rating in the 18-49 demographic, The Walking Dead placed well-ahead of Sunday's NFL game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Baltimore Ravens, which only scored 6.1. According to Deadline, that’s a margin of 24%.

This is the second time this season that The Walking Dead has surpassed Sunday Night Football. The first time came almost a month ago, when the Season 5 premiere beat the NFL’s 18-49 ratings by a score of 8.7 to 6.6. With these numbers, The Walking Dead officially ranks as the most-watched non sports program on television.

The Walking Dead returns this Sunday with “Self Help” at 9:00 pm ET. The Sunday Night Football match up competing for the timeslot’s top spot will be Chicago Bears against the Green Bay Packers.
