The finale of “Westworld” was in line with its season average, but the show’s linear ratings were down vs. Season 1.

The HBO show drew a 0.6 rating among adults 18-49 and 1.56 million viewers, even with the previous week. Year to year, however, “Westworld” ends up down about 23 percent in adults 18-49 in same-day ratings (vs. 0.8 in 2017) and 14 percent in viewers (1.57 million vs. 1.82 million).

Of course, the overnight numbers represent only a fraction of “Westworld’s” total audience, with replays, DVR, on demand and streaming making up the majority. But the baseline is lower than it was in 2017.

The BET Awards led Sunday’s cable ratings with a 1.2 in adults 18-49 and 2.87 million viewers, down from 1.5 and 3.83 million last year. “Claws” slipped a tenth of a point in adults 18-49 to 0.4.

FX’s “Pose” cracked the top 25 for the first time with a 0.3.
