Discovery’s “Naked and Afraid XL” was Sunday’s top-rated original cable show among adults 18-49, in the midst of a soft Memorial Day weekend.

The show drew a 0.6 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 1.69 million viewers, in line with recent weeks. A Liga MX game on Univision Deportes finished second for the day at 0.5.

“Keeping Up with the Kardashians” fell to 0.4 from its usual 0.6-0.7. “Silicon Valley,” “The Leftovers” and “American Gods” all came in at 0.3.

Parts 3 and 4 of “Twin Peaks” brought in 195,000 viewers for its initial on-air showing. Showtime made the episodes available to stream immediately after the premiere a week earlier, which likely accounts for some of the dropoff from the debut’s 506,000 viewers.
