The Charts: Not Much Change Week to Week as The Walking Dead Continues to Reign

By | February 26, 2015

walking-dead-season-5-artThe charts remained relatively stable compared to last week as The Walking Dead continued to reign on the cable Top 25 based on total viewers and on the General Sentiment charts tracking social network activity for the cable shows.  TWD also improved by one rung on the Nielsen Twitter Ratings Top 10.  Gotham improved slightly on the broadcast network Top 25 based on ratings in the 18-49 demographic while Person of Interest remained steady on Top 25 based on total viewers.   The General Sentiment chart tracking the broadcast net shows went through its typical shuffle, but all the usual suspects remained in the Top 25 with Agent Carter leading them off again.  I expect to see that show and Sleepy Hollow rise some on that chart next week which will be tracking the activity for their season finales, but other than that, expect more of the same when the next set of rankings is tallied.

Here is the full look at chart activity for genre shows for the week of February 16th thru 22nd:
