TLC’s “90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days” maintained its place atop the Sunday cable ratings again, and ticked up one-tenth from its previous 0.6 to a 0.7 rating in adults 18-49. AMC’s “Fear the Walking Dead” followed closely behind with a 0.6, even with its last episode. Elsewhere, “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” fell one-tenth from a 0.5 to a 0.4.

Following its season 9 premiere from the week before, Showtime’s “Shameless” took a predictable hit this time around, dropping a tenth from a 0.5 to a 0.4. With its second episode, the Jim Carrey-led “Kidding” was steady with another 0.1, but was down in total viewers from 443,000 to 290,000.

On HBO, “Ballers” was even with another 0.3. “Insecure,” however, managed to tick back up one-tenth from its season low 0.2 to a 0.3, while “The Deuce” maintained the same 0.2 as its second season premiere, and only fell 31,000 viewers from 636,000 to 605,000.

The Discovery Channel’s “Alaskan Bush People” continued its recent 0.4 streak. VH1’s “Basketball Wives” held onto a 0.5 for the second week in a row.
