“Watchmen” closed out its first (and possibly only?) season in solid fashion Sunday night.

The HBO series’ finale episode landed in the night’s top 25 cable shows with a 0.3 rating among adults 18-49 and a 935,000 viewer audience. The series not only matched its penultimate episode’s 0.3 rating, but also scored its largest linear audience of the season so far.

Elsewhere, Adult Swim’s “Rick and Morty” fell from a 1.0 to a 0.8, but remained Sunday’s highest-rated cable show. TLC’s “90 Day Fiancé” held onto second place in the chart as well, and managed to stay steady with yet another 0.7 rating. Bravo’s “Real Housewives of Atlanta” rounded out the night’s top 3 with a 0.6, also steady with its previous episode.

On E!, “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” ticked up from a 0.4 to a 0.5, while Showtime’s “Shameless” (0.2) slipped one-tenth week-to-week.
