Once again, “90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days” landed on top of the Sunday cable ratings.

The latest episode of the TLC series scored a 0.8 rating in adults 18-49, leading the night’s cable ratings despite being down a tenth from the 0.9 it had scored the week before. ESPN’s “NFL Countdown” held onto the night’s no. 2 spot with the same 0.6 as its previous Sunday broadcast.

Starz’s “Power” rounded out the night’s top 3 with its fourth straight 0.4. The season 5 finale of AMC’s “Fear the Walking Dead” followed closely behind with a 0.4 and 1.51 million viewers – steady with its penultimate episode from the previous week. Elsewhere, Bravo’s “Real Housewives of Potomac” continued its recent 0.4 streak as well.

On HBO, “Last Week Tonight” grabbed a 0.3 with 817,000 viewers, while “The Righteous Gemstones”  matched its last outing’s 0.2 rating. Outside of the night’s top 25, “Ballers” similarly held onto its previous 0.2. “Succession,” however, posted a 0.1 for the second week in a row.
