Sunday’s cable winners stayed the same week-to-week.

TLC’s “90 Day Fiancé” remained the day’s highest-rated cable show, with its fifth straight 0.7 rating in the adults 18-49 demo. Bravo’s “Real Housewives of Atlanta” came in second place yet again, and similarly posted the same 0.6 as its last outing. “Married to Medicine” also held steady, as its pair of new episodes grabbed back-to-back 0.4s – even in the 18-49 demo with the show’s outing from the previous week.

Elsewhere, ESPN’s “NFL Countdown” placed fourth in the chart with a 0.5 rating, while the network’s broadcast of the Dallas Mavericks vs. Los Angeles Lakers NBA game followed closely behind with a 0.5 as well. On Showtime, “Shameless” experienced a minor uptick from its last outing, rising from a 0.2 rating with 838,000 viewers to a 0.3 with 856,000 viewers this time around.
