Blame it on The Walking Dead Season 6 Episode 1, or simply on poor quality, but Blood and Oil is officially on Death Watch.
Opposite The Walking Dead for the first time this week, the ABC drama fell to 3.8 million total viewers on Sunday, along with a paltry .8 rating among 18-49-year olds. It has lost 40 percent of its audience from its premiere.
Elsewhere on ABC, Once Upon a Time Season 5 Episode 3 tied a series low with 5.2 million viewers and 1.6 rating, while Quantico Season 1 Episode 3 held relatively strong at 5.7 million and a 1.6 rating.
On NBC, Sunday Night Football dominated everything in its path, per usual.
On CBS, The Good Wife held steady among young adults, while Madam Secretary (10.9 million/1.5 rating) ticked up a tenth and CSI: Cyber (6 million/.9 rating) fell by 12 percent and a tenth.
