“Fear the Walking Dead” returned to AMC with much lower ratings than it drew in Season 2. It was big enough, however, to tie for the lead among adults 18-49 on cable in the week of May 29.

The first of two “Fear” episodes Sunday earned a 1.2 rating in the 18-49 demo, tying Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Finals on NBC Sports Network for the top spot. The second episode (1.0) tied for third with “Street Outlaws” and Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Finals.

A NASCAR race on FS1 was No. 1 in total viewers for the week with 3.36 million.
