“Fear the Walking Dead” opened its fourth season Sunday a good ways in front of last year’s premiere — with an assist from its parent show.

“Fear” posted a 1.6 rating among adults 18-49 and 4.09 million viewers, up from 1.2 and 3.11 in 2017. It was helped considerably by the finale of “The Walking Dead,” which also rose substantially from a week earlier: 3.4 in the 18-49 demo and 7.92 million viewers, up from 2.8 and 6.67 million. (It’s down a bunch, however, from the 5.4 and 11.31 million for last season’s finale.)

Elsewhere Sunday, “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” (1.0) rose a tenth on Bravo. “Homeland” and “Silicon Valley” both matched the prior week’s 0.3 but fell out of the top 25. Three NBA playoff games on TNT put up strong numbers, led by the 1.9 and 4.41 million viewers for the opener of the Timberwolves-Rockets series.
