Bravo’s “Real Housewives of Atlanta” held onto the no. 1 spot in the Sunday cable ratings, and managed to tick up a tenth from its previous 0.7 to a 0.8 in adults 18-49. TLC’s “90 Day Fiance” (0.6) came second, and “Real Housewives of Orange County” landed fourth with a 0.6, down a tenth from its last episode’s 0.7.

Also on Bravo, “Dirty John” maintained a 0.4 for the third week in a row. After taking a small hit the week before as well, E!’s “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” held steady with another 0.4. Outside of the top 25, the season 11 finale of “Doctor Who” scored the same 0.2 as its penultimate episode, but hit a new season low in viewers, with 706,000 on BBC America.

Starz’s “Outlander” went the other way, and not only matched its previous 0.2, but rose in viewers from 958,000 to 1.04 million. Meanwhile, “Counterpart” premiered its second season with a series low 0.04 in the demo, down from both its premiere (0.08) last year and its season finale (0.1) back in April.
