The Walking Dead had a midseason premiere last Sunday, but it experienced a decline in ratings.

Season 6's returning episode "No Way Out" pulled in 13.74 million viewers with a 6.8 rating, which was down 12% from the total of 15.6 million viewers and 8.0 rating of Season 5's midseason.

Better Call Saul, on the other hand, is killing it and its demo debut last February displayed the best results ever — that is, until Fear The Walking Dead hit screens last April and set new records.

The Walking Dead is still keeping a steady rating for the most part, especially considering the fact that the winter finale of November 2015 had 13.9 million viewers and a demo rating of 7.02.

Martin Scorsese's Vinyl also experienced a disappointing showing. The series about the 1970s New York record industry only drew in 764,000 viewers. This opening day is considered just OK for an HBO debut.

AMC is sticking to its policy of waiting until Live + 3 ratings for The Walking Dead and Better Call Saul before they talk about numbers.
