Rick and Carl made it out of the zombie horde in "No Way Out," but not in once piece.

Despite massive zombie hordes and alternate realities, "The Walking Dead's" midseason premiere and "The Flash's" conclusion to its Earth-2 adventure weren't able to maintain their respective audiences, though both shows continued to enjoy impressive numbers.

According to Entertainment Weekly, "No Way Out" -- "The Walking Dead's" Sunday night return -- dipped 12% from last year's midseason premiere. Additionally, viewership fell to 13.7 million from the midseason finale's 18.3 million. Still, the numbers are nothing to scoff at; the show nabbed a 6.8 rating among adults 18-49, which is the highest adult demo rating for a scripted series this year.

"Agent Carter" also fell a tick with a 0.7/2 rating, down a tenth from last week.

"The Walking Dead" airs Sundays at 9 pm EST on AMC. "The Flash" speeds to The CW on Tuesday at 8 pm EST. "Agent Carter" runs Tuesdays at 9 pm EST on ABC.
