It came down to a tie for the demo win in the cable live +3 ratings for the week of August 19.

VH1’s “Love & Hip Hop Hollywood” and the Paramount Network’s “Yellowstone” topped the week with matching 1.2 L+3 ratings among adults 18-49. “Love & Hip Hop” was up 0.5 points (+71%) from its initial L+SD rating, while “Yellowstone” was up 0.7 points (+140%). Bravo’s “Below Deck Mediterranean” and TLC’s “90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days” similarly tied for third place in the demo with a pair of 1.1s.
