ESPN’s telecast of the Pro Bowl was far and away Sunday’s top show on cable, and was No. 2 overall behind “Grease Live.” The all-star game drew a 2.8 in adults 18-49 and just under 8 million viewers.

“The Real Housewives of Atlanta” (1.3) was down a tenth from the previous week but still came in second for the day. The NHL All-Star game on NBC Sports Network posted a 0.6, and Showtime’s “Billions” entered the Top 100 (barely) for the first time with a 0.4. It has grown its same-day audience for two weeks running.
