Meanwhile, the “Little Women: Atlanta” reunion episode grabbed a 0.6 on Lifetime.

After taking a week off as well, OWN’s “Queen Sugar” returned with a 0.5, the same rating as its previous episode. ESPN’s coverage of the Houston vs Los Angeles Lakers NBA game grabbed the second spot of the night though with a 0.9, while the earlier game between Oklahoma City and Philadelphia brought in a 0.7 for the network.
