Meanwhile, TLC’s “90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days” (0.8) remained the highest-rated cable show of the night, and also ticked up a tenth week-to-week.
After taking a small hit the week before, E!’s “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” climbed back up from a 0.4 to a 0.5, while the Discovery Channel’s “Alaskan Bush People” maintained its previous 0.4 yet again. Elsewhere, Showtime’s “Shameless” was steady with another 0.4 and 1.05 million viewers. The Jim Carrey-led “Kidding” stayed outside of the top 25, and held onto its previous 0.1 as well.
On HBO, “Ballers” continued its recent 0.3 streak, while “Insecure” fell back down from a 0.3 to a 0.2, tying its season low. “Last Week Tonight” (0.3) returned even with its previous episode, and “The Deuce” hit a series low 0.1 with 585,000 viewers.
