The series finale of HBO’s “Sharp Objects” closed out its run by hitting an all-time high.
The Amy Adams-led drama scored a 0.5 rating in adults 18-49 with 1.76 million viewers, not only up a tenth from its last episode, but also making it the show’s most-watched installment. It was followed by “Ballers,” which maintained the same 0.4 it had scored the week before. “Insecure,” meanwhile, hit a season-high by ticking up one-tenth from a 0.3 to a 0.4.
Elsewhere, TLC’s “90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days” claimed the top spot of the night, holding steady with another 0.8. Both AMC’s “Fear the Walking Dead” (0.6) and E!’s “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” (0.5) were similarly even with their previous episodes.
Following its season premiere, the Discovery Channel’s “Alaskan Bush People” fell three-tenths from a 0.8 to a 0.5. Landing just outside of the top 25, the third season finale of AMC’s “Preacher” managed to maintain a 0.3, and scored its largest audience of the season with 1.02 million viewers.
