“Rick and Morty” returned on top of the Sunday cable ratings this past weekend.
The season 4 premiere of the Adult Swim series, which was also its first original episode in just over 2 years, led the night’s cable chart with a 1.3 rating in adults 18-49 and 2.33 million viewers. AMC’s “The Walking Dead” came second by ticking up one-tenth from its last episode’s 1.0 rating to a 1.1 this time around, halting its week-to-week declines for the first time this season.
TLC’s “90 Day Fiancé” rounded out the night’s top 3 with the same 0.7 as its season premiere. Bravo’s “Real Housewives of Atlanta” followed closely behind with a 0.7 as well, up one-tenth from its premiere’s 0.6. Meanwhile, HBO’s “Watchmen” posted its second straight 0.2, and its 707,000 viewer audience was up a bit from its previous episode’s 648,000 viewers.
Elsewhere, the season 10 premiere of Showtime’s “Shameless” grabbed a 0.2 rating, down from both its season 9 premiere rating (0.5) and its overall 2018-19 season average (0.4).
