Hoping to reinvent the long-running zombie show with a time-jump, a whole host of new characters and the departure of fan-favorites like Andrew Lincoln and Lauren Cohan, is stumbling at the first hurdle. The AMC series’ revamped Season 9 just hit a new series low for ratings. reports that October 14’s “The Bridge” drew a disappointing Neilsen rating of 2.0 in the key 18-49 demographic and just 4.9 million viewers in the Live+Same Day numbers.

After the Season 7 premiere brutally offed Glenn and Abraham, The Walking Dead dropped from 17 million to 12.5 viewers. The show also slumped from 8.3 million to 6.82 million following Carl’s death, and with The Walking Dead facing the possibility of Rick Grimes becoming its biggest death ever, one has to wonder where the shows numbers will go once he’s gone.
