Once again, it was TLC’s “90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days” that scored the top spot in the Sunday cable ratings last week – despite falling two-tenths from its previous 0.8 to a 0.6 rating in adults 18-49. Starz’s “Power” came second in the night with a 0.6, the same as what it had scored the week before. AMC’s “Fear the Walking Dead” rounded out the top 3 of the night, though, by falling one-tenth week-to-week and hitting a series low 0.5.
Elsewhere, NBC Sports’ coverage of the Bojangles’ Southern 500 NASCAR race landed fairly high with a 0.4 and 2.66 million viewers. On HBO, “Ballers” took a minor hit, slipping a tenth from a 0.4 to a 0.3, while “Insecure” fell back outside of the top 25 with a season low 0.2 in the demo.
The Discovery Channel’s “Alaskan Bush People” (0.4) was down a tenth from its last episode as well, as was VH1’s “Basketball Wives” (0.4).
