“Game of Thrones” made it three-for-three in dominating ratings performances in Season 7 with its July 30 episode.

The show led the cable rankings for the week of July 24-30 by wide margins in both adults 18-49 (4.3 rating) and viewers (9.25 million). Its numbers were more than double those of the second-place finisher in each category (“Rick & Morty’s” 1.5 in adults 18-49, and 3.67 million viewers for a NASCAR race on NBCSN).

Shark Week put up solid ratings for Discovery, with eight shows from the week ranking in the top 25 among adults 18-49. “Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood” premiered to a solid 1.2 on VH1.
