A live baseball broadcast topped the cable ratings Sunday night.
Fox Sports 1’s broadcast of the MLB ALCS game between the New York Yankees and the Houston Astros led the night with a 1.5 rating in adults 18-49 and 5.59 million viewers. It stole the no. 1 spot from AMC’s “The Walking Dead,” which placed second in the chart with a 1.3 and 3.47 million viewers, down from the 1.4 and 4 million viewer audience that its season premiere scored the week before.
The NFL Network’s broadcast of the Carolina vs. Tampa Bay game rounded out the night’s top 3 with a 1.1 and 3.08 million viewers. TLC’s “90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days,” meanwhile, came fourth with a 0.8, down one-tenth from its 0.9 last Sunday. Elsewhere, Starz’s “Power” ticked back down from a 0.5 to a 0.4, and E!’s “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” held steady with a 0.4 for the second week in a row.
On HBO, “Last Week Tonight” posted its second straight 0.2, while the series finale of “Ballers” maintained the same 0.2 that it did throughout its entire final season. Similarly, the season finales of “The Righteous Gemstones” and “Succession” scored the same 0.2 ratings as their penultimate episodes.
