Despite the fact that it’s still the number one show on television, a lot has been said in recent weeks about The Walking Dead‘s falling ratings. It’s true, the ratings have dipped significantly after the highly-anticipated Season 7 premiere, but I have a feeling things are going to turn around very soon.

First, let’s go back to that season premiere. After a full summer of anticipation and speculation, a record number of viewers tuned in to see who Negan killed in the Season 6 cliffhanger. The deaths of Glenn and Abraham became a watershed moment for the show, a new iconic scene in the history of television.

Afterward, the show lost more and more viewers each week. Some attributed the losses to viewers who were turned off by the violence in the season premiere. While that’s possible, the change in pace is the more likely culprit. After such a wild setup in the season premiere, a lot of viewers were unhappy or bored with the separate stories being told each week.

Splitting the group up and telling individual stories each episode has become a common trope on The Walking Dead.
