“Game of Thrones” may be over, but that doesn’t mean HBO had to give up the top spot in the Sunday cable ratings this past weekend.
The network’s broadcast of the special “Game of Thrones: The Last Watch” documentary was the night’s no. 1 broadcast with a 0.5 rating in adults 18-49 and 1.63 million viewers. Meanwhile, TLC’s “90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After?” and “90 Day Fiance: What Now?” came second and third in the night with a pair of 0.5s as well.
Elsewhere, E!’s “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” returned from a week off, ticking down from its previous episode’s 0.4 to a 0.3. ESPN’s broadcast of the MLB Sunday Night game between Atlanta and St. Louis also scored a 0.3, with 1.32 million viewers.
Outside of the top 25, the season 2 finale of “Killing Eve” raked in a combined 0.2 rating and 904,000 viewer audience, thanks to its simulcast on BBC America and AMC, down from its penultimate episode’s combined 0.3 rating and 1.08 million viewers. Showtime’s “Billions” similarly ticked down from a 0.2 to its first 0.1 of the season.
