Since Beth, none of the major characters has died (not counting the Glen tease... which everyone knew wasn't true). Imagine how many people would be turned off if Carol or Daryl or Michonne were to be killed off? Once people invest energy in getting to know the characters, they don't want to invest more without a substantial payoff... which neither show has managed to make worth the cost of a main character so far.
the show is disappointing in how inconsistent it is in the quality of the writing and so forth
also the plot device where you build up a character and follow them around and generate lots of interest, then kill them dead forever - that may be cool once or twice, maybe three times - but when it becomes the standard mechanic of your show, its fucking horrible... because then nobody will give a shit about anything since its so disposable

well some places don't even air the show from what I've heard, and those places have many downloads.
Seems to me if they made it $1 per episode and accessible they would be $14.4 million richer.....
