(NEW YORK) -- The Walking Dead's season-eight premiere, the show's 100th episode, didn't exactly slay compared to its other first-of-season installments.
Sunday night's show attracted the lowest premiere ratings -- 11.4 million total viewers -- since the series' third season. Last season's premiere drew 17.03 million viewers, according to Nielsen numbers posted by Variety.
However, unlike the first episode of season eight, season seven began by answering a major cliffhanger -- which fan-favorite characters did Negan kill in the closing moments of season six? This year's premiere had no such cliffhanger attached.
The peak audience remains the season-five premiere, which drew…

Those events, she told The Financial Times, ultimately led to a total settlement of £250,000 -- more than $330,000 -- for herself and a colleague and the signing of non-disclosure agreements that prevented her from ever discussing the situation.
