“90 Day Fiancé” topped the Sunday cable ratings for the second week in a row.

The TLC reality series led Sunday’s cable chart with a 0.7 rating among adults 18-49, down one-tenth from its previous episode’s 0.8. Meanwhile, Bravo’s “Real Housewives of Atlanta” (0.6) claimed the night’s no. 2 spot yet again, despite also ticking down a tenth week-to-week. Rounding out the night’s top 3, ESPN’s “NFL Countdown” grabbed a 0.5 rating with 1.38 million viewers.

Lower in the chart, the season 10 premiere of HBO’s “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” which was the comedy series’ first episode in over 2 years, posted a 0.2 rating with 708,000 viewers. With those numbers, “Curb” returned a bit below the 0.3 rating and 881,000 viewer audience that its season 9 finale scored back in December 2017.  Elsewhere, Starz’s “Power” took a minor ratings hit, falling from a 0.4 to a 0.3, while Showtime’s “Shameless” stayed even with another 0.2.

Outside of the night’s top 25, HBO’s “The Outsider” held steady with another 0.2 rating and raked in 858,000 viewers – beating the 724,000 and 603,000 viewer audiences that its first 2 episodes scored the previous Sunday. Also on HBO, the series premiere of “Avenue 5” grabbed a 0.2 rating with 571,000 viewers.
