“Game of Thrones” extended its winning streak to six weeks — one for each episode of Season 7 so far — in the cable rankings for Aug. 14-20.

The HBO show was down a little from its series highs on Aug. 13 but still had no real competition on cable for the week. It scored a 4.7 rating among adults 18-49, more than three times higher than second-place “Rick & Morty.” Its 10.24 million viewers was nearly three times as many as the second most-watched show, the first hour of “WWE Monday Night Raw” (3.42 million).
