As much as ratings erosion is about as inevitable and inescapable as the Big Dirt Nap, fans of "The Walking Dead" have no reason to fear that it's in any danger of disappearing from AMC's schedule.

Debuting directly after the TWD Season 8 finale and facing the mega-hyped 20/20 sitdown with former Federal Bureau of Investigation boss James Comey on ABC, the Kim Dickens led Fear brought in 4.1 million viewers.
