reports "The Walking Dead" closed out its sixth season as the most popular series on television among adults 18-49, when counting "Live+3" numbers (those factor in three days' worth of DVR playback and VOD). That's the fourth year in a row the drama has claimed that crown.
Those "Live+3" estimates lifted Sunday's finale to 18.4 million total viewers, up from 14.2 million who watched the 90-minute episode live, and 11.5 million in the coveted 18-49 demo (9.1 national rating). AMC expects the episode to garner an additional 1 million digital views.
As we reported on Tuesday, Sunday's cliffhanger was down about 10 percent from the Season 5 finale in same-day viewings.
