The MTV Movie & TV Awards suffered ratings declines on Sunday. The awards (the first with “& TV” in the title) drew a 0.6 rating and 1.18 million viewers, down from 0.8 and 1.45 million for the movie awards last year.

The rest of Sunday was a mixed bag. A pair of NBA playoff games on TNT finished 1-2 in both adults 18-49 (1.9 and 1.8) and viewers. “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” (1.3) was up two tenths of a point week to week. “Naked and Afraid” (0.8) improved by a tenth.

“Keeping Up with the Kardashians” fell a tenth to 0.6, while “Silicon Valley” was steady at 0.4. Episode 2 of “American Gods” on Starz dipped a tenth to 0.3, finishing a little outside the Top 25. The season finale of “Billions” on Showtime also drew a 0.3.
