The season finale of “Homeland” on Showtime pulled in the show’s largest audience of the season Sunday. The episode drew a 0.6 rating among adults 18-49, placing it among the Top 5 originals for the day, and 1.9 million viewers (also a season high).

“The Real Housewives of Atlanta” (1.1) claimed the top spot among adults 18-49 now that “The Walking Dead” has finished its season. Right behind was ID’s “Casey Anthony: An American Murder Mystery,” which posted a 1.0 and 2.9 million viewers.

AMC’s “Into the Badlands” took a big hit without a “Walking Dead” lead-in. The show tumbled eight tenths of a point week to week, going from 1.4 to 0.6. That’s a drop of 57 percent.
