TLC and the Discovery Channel had a dominant presence over the Sunday cable ratings, with the latter kicking off its annual run of Shark Week specials.
TLC’s “90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After?” stayed on top of the night’s ratings, with the second part of its “Tell All” special scoring a 0.8 rating in adults 18-49, down one-tenth from its previous episode’s 0.9. The Discovery Channel’s “Shark Trip: Eat Prey Chum” came second with a 0.8 as well, while “Expedition Unknown: Megalodon” (0.7) rounded out the night’s top 3.
Elsewhere, ESPN’s broadcast of the MLB Sunday night game between New York and Boston raked in a 0.5 with 2.4 million viewers, beating the 0.3 and 1.33 million viewers that the previous week’s Washington vs. Atlanta game scored. On TNT, “Claws” stayed even with the same 0.3 rating as its last few episodes.
Outside of the night’s top 25, HBO’s “Euphoria” scored its seventh straight 0.2, and National Geographic’s “Gordon Ramsay: Uncharted” matched its series premiere’s 0.2. The season finale of AMC’s “NOS4A2” (0.2) also held steady week-to-week.
