“The Walking Dead” Season 8 premiere, also the show’s 100th episode, posted the series’ lowest premiere ratings since its third season.

Walking Dead Season 8

According to Nielsen Live+Same Day data, the AMC series averaged a 5.0 rating in adults 18-49 and 11.4 million total viewers on Sunday night. The Season 3 premiere, which aired in 2012, averaged a 5.8 and 10.86 million viewers by comparison. This also means that the Season 8 premiere is the third-lowest in series history, ahead of only Season 2 and Season 1.

The Season 7 premiere drew an 8.4 and 17.03 million, meaning Season 8 was down approximately 40 percent in the demo and 33 percent in total viewers season-to-season. However, it should be noted that last season’s premiere was the resolution of a major cliffhanger, while the new season was not.

Here is a snippet from the show:

“I’m done.”

That was my initial reaction after watching the episode earlier this week (in my case Monday morning…not the way to start your work week off believe me)

So I walked away thinking that’s it. Not because the violence was over-the-top (it was). Not because I didn’t see the deaths coming (I did…and then I didn’t) but mainly because it just stopped being fun. I had this whole top 10 deaths in comcis and movies bit planned. You know the Gwen Stacy, the Jean Grey, the Han Solo…nope. Not doing it. This wasn’t fun. The deaths in this episode wasn’t fun. I didn’t walk away feeling like I have in the past. I didn’t walk away feeling like I have for Game of Thrones. This was just. Not. Fun.
