The season 5 premiere of “Fear the Walking Dead” returned AMC to the top of the Sunday cable ratings.

The zombie series led the night’s cable chart with a 0.6 rating in adults 18-49 and 1.97 million viewers, down one-tenth from both its midseason premiere last year and its season 4 finale. The series premiere of “NOS4A2” followed it with a 0.3 and 1.11 million viewers.

TLC’s “90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After?” (0.5) came second in the night, matching its rating from the week before, while E!’s “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” ticked back up from a 0.3 to a 0.4. On ESPN, the MLB Sunday Night game between the Boston Red Sox and the New York Yankees posted a 0.4 with 1.97 million viewers, up from the previous week’s Atlanta vs. St. Louis game (0.3, 1.32 million).

Elsewhere, Bravo’s “Real Housewives of Potomac” and HBO’s “Last Week Tonight” landed a little lower in the chart, but scored matching 0.3s. Outside of the top 25, Showtime’s “Billions” rebounded from its previous 0.1 back up to a 0.2.
