Comedy Central’s Roast of Bruce Willis scored the top spot of the night in the Sunday cable ratings with a 0.8 rating in adults 18-49 and 1.77 million viewers. This was up one-tenth from the 0.7 that the network’s Rob Lowe roast had scored back in 2016, neither of which came close to the 2.6 rating and 4.4 million viewers of the Justin Bieber roast in March 2015.

On Starz, “Power” was down another tenth to a 0.5, as was TNT’s “Claws,” which fell from its previous 0.5 to a 0.4 this time around. Bravo’s “The Real Housewives of Potomac” was also down to a 0.3, while the NBC Sports Network’s broadcast of the Nascar Gander Outdoors 400 race landed high with a 0.5 and 2.75 million viewers.

For the first time too, HBO’s “Sharp Objects” fell out of the top 25, slipping from its previous 0.3 to a 0.2. After hitting a season high last week, AMC’s “Preacher” fell back down one-tenth to a 0.2.
