HBO’s “Game of Thrones” stayed dominant in the Sunday cable ratings this week, scoring a 5.1 rating in adults 18-49 with 11.8 million viewers. That’s down just slightly from the 5.3 and 12.02 million viewers that the show’s previous episode scored with its first broadcast. The most recent episode’s initial 11.8 million viewer audience is still the series’ third-best ever.
Also on HBO, “Barry” similarly ticked down from its last episode’s series high 0.9 rating to a 0.8, but “Veep” (0.4) held steady.
Elsewhere, TNT’s broadcast of the Nuggets vs. Trailblazers NBA playoff game took the night’s no. 2 spot with a 1.5 rating and 4.06 million viewers. E!’s “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” continued its recent 0.4 streak.
Outside of the top 25, Showtime’s “Billions” held onto its previous 0.2 yet again. Meanwhile, “Killing Eve” rose to a combined 0.3 rating with its AMC and BBC America simulcast, but did dip from its previous episode’s combined 1.09 million viewer audience to 1.02 million viewers this time around.
