“90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days” scored another dominant victory over its competition in the Sunday cable ratings this past weekend.

The TLC series held onto the night’s no. 1 spot with a 0.8 rating in adults 18-49, double what any of the night’s other cable shows scored in the demo and up again from its previous episode’s 0.7. ESPN’s broadcast of the MLB Sunday Night game between Chicago and Pittsburgh landed second in the night with a 0.4 and 1.76 million viewers.

Bravo’s “Real Housewives of Potomac” rounded out the night’s top 3 with a 0.4 as well, up one-tenth from its 0.3 a week ago. Elsewhere, AMC’s “Fear the Walking Dead” maintained its midseason premiere’s 0.4 rating, but slipped a little in total viewers from 1.4 million to 1.37 million. On HBO, “Last Week Tonight” held similarly steady with another 0.3.

After taking a hit last week, the Discovery Channel’s “Serengeti” recovered a little in the ratings, ticking up from its previous 0.3 to a 0.4 with 1.73 million viewers. Meanwhile, outside of the top 25, National Geographic’s “Gordon Ramsay: Uncharted” fell back down from a 0.2 to a 0.1.
