TLC’s “90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days” remained the no. 1 show in the Sunday cable ratings this past weekend, despite ticking back down from the 0.9 it scored the week before to a 0.8 rating among adults 18-49. Meanwhile, the Weather Channel’s Hurricane Dorian coverage grabbed the following 11 spots in the night’s chart with nine 0.4 ratings and two 0.3s. The Weather Channel scored an additional 4 spots in the chart as well, with matching 0.3s.

The holiday weekend and the fact that it was facing heavier competition than normal resulted in a notable drop for Starz’s “Power,” which fell from its season premiere’s 0.6 to a 0.3. Elsewhere, AMC’s “Fear the Walking Dead” similarly ticked down from a 0.4 to a 0.3. ESPN’s broadcast of the MLB Sunday Night game between the Mets and the Phillies just barely landed inside the night’s top 25 with a 0.3 and 1.19 million viewers.

Bravo’s “Real Housewives of Potomac” managed to stay steady with its second straight 0.3. Outside of the top 25, however, the Discovery Channel’s “Serengeti” slipped from a 0.3 to a 0.2.

On HBO, “Ballers” matched its season premiere’s 0.2, while “The Righteous Gemstones” scored a 0.2 for the third week in a row.
