The series finale of “The Leftovers” went out on a high note in the ratings. Sunday’s conclusion of the HBO show delivered its biggest total audience (1.05 million) since the Season 1 finale and tied a season high among adults 18-49 at 0.4.
The news was not so good for the season premiere of “Fear the Walking Dead.” The first of two episodes at 9 p.m. tied a series low in adults 18-49 at 1.2, and the second hit new lows in both the 18-49 demographic (1.0) and viewers (2.7 million).
Elsewhere, “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” (0.6) was on par with its usual numbers, while “Last Week Tonight” (0.5) was up a little over its last outing. “Food Network Star” premiered to a 0.4.
“Twin Peaks” remained well outside the top 25 for Showtime but was up a little bit in viewers week to week. It drew 254,000 people vs. 195,000 the week before. The premiere of “I’m Dying Up Here” struggled, attracting only 167,000 people for its initial airing and 357,000 over four airings, including a sneak preview on Saturday.
