- Plenty has already been said about the huge debut of Fear the Walking Dead (4.93), which enters this table at well over four times the next biggest show. There are definitely a lot of different ways of looking at this. If it were a The Walking Dead episode, it would be just the forty-seventh biggest episode of that series. But if it were a broadcast drama episode, it would be the ninth-biggest one of those in the last four-plus years! (Trailing only six Empires and two Super Bowl lead-outs.) The bottom line is that it's OK to be a tad underwhelmed by this 4.93 in the context of The Walking Dead's history, but TWD is such an incredible anomaly that it will still be unbelievably enormous in any other context.
