“90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days” kicked off its third season this past weekend with a narrow win in the Sunday cable ratings.

The TLC reality series grabbed the night’s top spot with a 0.6 rating in adults 18-49, down from the 0.8 that the “90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After?” finale scored the week before, but steady with its season premiere from a year ago.

FX’s airing of “Spider-Man: Homecoming” came second in the night with a 0.5, while the series premiere of the Discovery Channel’s “Serengeti” placed third with a solid 0.5 and 2.35 million viewers. ESPN’s broadcast of the MLB Sunday night game between Red Sox and the Yankees followed closely behind with a 0.5 and 2.21 million viewers.

Elsewhere, the NBC Sports Network’s broadcast of the Go Bowling at The Glen NASCAR race grabbed a 0.4 with 2.72 million viewers, and TNT’s “Claws” continued its recent 0.3 streak. On HBO, “Last Week Tonight” raked in a 0.2, even with its most recent outing.

Outside of the top 25, the season one finale of HBO’s “Euphoria” held steady with the same 0.2 rating that it maintained all season, and drew in a 530,000 viewer audience. National Geographic’s “Gordon Ramsay: Uncharted,” however, dropped from its previous 0.2 to its first 0.1.
