|8.2 (fall 2013 premiere, +42% year-to-year) |

8.0 (spring 2014 finale, +25% y2y)
The "I just can't see a scripted series going any higher in this day and age" argument hasn't worked with this show in four years, but there were some quantifiable reasons to think the growth might be slowing down in season four. Much of the late fall and spring parts of the season were only up in the 10% area year-to-year, and the spring finale was Dead's first ever season premiere or finale not to set a new series high. Still, it was very close, so I think the show has got one more (maybe one last?) series high in it.
