It was “Rick and Morty” that led the Sunday cable ratings this past weekend.

The Adult Swim animated series returned from a week off with a 1.0 rating among adults 18-49, which puts it up one-tenth from its last outing’s 0.9 and above any of the night’s other cable shows in the 18-49 demo. TLC’s “90 Day Fiancé” placed second in the night with a 0.7, matching its rating from the previous week.

Bravo’s “Real Housewives of Atlanta” capped off the night’s top 3 with a 0.6, similarly steady with its last episode. E!’s “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” (0.4), Showtime’s “Shameless” (0.3), and HBO’s “Watchmen” (0.3) all stayed even week-to-week as well. Meanwhile, the series finale of HBO’s “Silicon Valley” raked in a 0.2 rating and 454,000 viewers.
