AMC’s The Walking Dead companion series is still settling in the ratings.

Sunday night’s Fear the Walking Dead delivered 7.2 million viewers and 4.6 million adults 18–49. 

That’s down 12 percent from the second episode which aired two weeks (which, in turn, was down 19 percent from its premiere). 

Given that the Fear premiere set a record as the most-watched cable scripted series, even the two weeks of slips still gives the show a number last night that rivals would gleefully kill for. And there was some heavy competition last night, including NFL football. 

Still, some viewers have complained that the story has a sluggish pace (did we really watch the characters sit and play a game of Monopoly?). For more, check out EW’s recap
