“90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days” continued its winning streak in the Sunday cable ratings.

The TLC reality series topped the night with a 0.8 rating in adults 18-49, matching its episode from a week ago. ESPN grabbed the night’s following two spots, with its “NFL Countdown” special scoring a 0.7 and its broadcast of the U.S. Open Men’s Final scoring a 0.5. The season premiere of E!’s “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” followed closely behind with a 0.5 and 1.07 million viewers.

Elsewhere, Starz’s “Power” recovered a little from the ratings hit it took last week, ticking back up from its previous 0.3 to a 0.4. AMC’s “Fear the Walking Dead” (0.4) also rose one-tenth week-to-week, as did Bravo’s “Real Housewives of Potomac” (0.4). ESPN’s broadcast of the MLB Sunday Night game between the Yankees and Boston Red Sox landed a little lower in the chart with a 0.3 and 1.30 million viewers, on par with the Mets vs. Phillies game from the week before.

Meanwhile, outside of the night’s top 25, HBO’s “Ballers” and “The Righteous Gemstones” both scored the same 0.2 ratings as their last outings. On the Discovery Channel, “Serengeti” held steady with its second straight 0.2.
