The “Sharknado” franchise has reached the point of diminishing ratings returns.

Sunday’s premiere of “Sharknado 5: Global Swarming” on Syfy drew a 0.6 rating among adults 18-49 and 1.89 million viewers. That’s down from 0.8 and 2.77 million viewers for “Sharknado 4” last year and the second-lowest premiere numbers of the series so far, ahead of only the first movie.

To be fair, a 0.6 and 1.89 million viewers is also way above Syfy’s usual primetime average, so the drop is not likely a death knell for the series.

Elsewhere Sunday, “Game of Thrones” had its most-watched episode ever at 10.17 million viewers, topping the 10.11 million for the Season 7 premiere. The episode’s 4.6 rating in the 18-49 demographic was the show’s second-best ever, a tenth behind the premiere.

“Rick & Morty” (1.3) stayed strong for Adult Swim. So did HBO’s “Ballers” (1.1) and “Insecure” (0.6), though both were down a bit from the previous week’s series highs. “Life of Kylie” premiered to a 0.5 on E!, off a bit from the typical numbers for “Keeping Up with the Kardashians.” “Power” held steady for Starz at 0.8.
