    Walker thus far – 0.37 -> 0.34 -> 0.27.

    Next week should be interesting for the series. It either falls to a 0.2 with the prelim numbers with its current trajectory or it stablizes and sticks at a 0.3 rounded. I would guess either a 0.24 or a 0.25 for Episode 4.


    • 69 Road Runner

      That was a precipitous fall for the third episode. And I thought the installment last night was the best one yet.
