Bravo’s “Real Housewives of Atlanta” reclaimed the top spot in the Sunday cable ratings, and scored a 0.6 in adults 18-49 with 1.65 million viewers. This was down a tenth from its previous episode, while TLC’s “90 Day Fiance” came second with a 0.6 of its own, back down two-tenths from the 0.8 it had scored the week before.

Additionally, after taking its first hit the previous Sunday, Bravo’s “Dirty John” managed to stay steady with its second straight 0.3. Outside of the top 25, Starz’s “Outlander” broke its 4-week 0.2 streak, and fell a tenth to a 0.1.

On Showtime, “Ray Donovan” similarly dropped from a 0.2 to a 0.1, and “Escape at Dannemora” held onto a 0.1, but did slip slightly in total viewers from 664,000 to 586,000.
