The Walking Dead Ratings Crash and Burn

Unfortunately, the season six opener didn’t draw in the big numbers this year, although I thought it was a pretty darn good episode.  It didn’t matter.  I’m not sure where the viewers went, but the episode only averaged a 7.43 in the 18-49 demographic.  This was lower than both the fourth season opener and the fifth season opener.  Are people getting burned out on The Walking Dead?  These numbers can’t be good.  I saw that the American Horror Story premiere was the same weekend and got an even HIGHER number than The Walking Dead.  I haven’t even seen that show or heard of it getting hyped as much as the Walking Dead.  How did it get a higher number? I don’t get it.
