ESPN’s broadcast of this year’s NFL Pro Bowl gave it the win Sunday night, as the game raked in a 0.8 rating in adults 18-49 with 2.36 million viewers. This was down two-tenths from the 1.0 that last year’s Pro Bowl broadcast posted on the network. Bravo’s “Real Housewives of Atlanta” came second with a 0.8 as well, up a tenth from its previous 0.7.

On HBO, “True Detective” rose from its last episode’s 0.3 to a 0.4 with 1.45 million viewers, making it the show’s second highest-rated, and most-watched episode of the season so far. Showtime’s “Shameless” landed lower in the chart with a 0.3, even with its midseason premiere from the week before.

Elsewhere, the 2019 Screen Actors Guild Awards averaged a combined 0.6 rating on TNT and TBS, down from the combined 0.8 it had scored on the networks last year.

Outside of the top 25, the season 4 finale of “Outlander” held steady in the demo with yet another 0.2, and rose to a new season high in viewers with 1.45 million.
