The BET Awards took the top spot in the Sunday cable ratings this past weekend with a 1.0 rating in adults 18-49 and 2.43 million viewers, down from the 1.2 and 2.87 million viewers that it scored last year.
Elsewhere, TLC’s “90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After?” came third in the night with a 0.8, up from its previous 0.6, and E!’s “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” (0.6) similarly rose two-tenths. On AMC, “Fear the Walking Dead” held steady with yet another 0.5.
HBO’s “Big Little Lies” ticked down from its last episode’s 0.5 to a 0.4, but also managed to climb up in viewers to a season high 1.62 million. It was the drama’s second-largest audience to date, behind only the 1.86 million viewers that its first season finale scored back in April 2017.
Outside of the top 25, TNT’s “Claws” (0.2) fell another tenth week-to-week, and AMC’s “NOS4A2” inched back down from a 0.3 to a 0.2. HBO’s “Euphoria” posted a 0.2 with 574,000 viewers, fairly steady with its series premiere’s 0.2 and 577,000 viewers, while Showtime’s “City on a Hill” (0.1) stayed even in its second week as well.
