The season premiere of HBO’s “Ballers” just barely made its way into the cable top 25 for the week of August 6.

The Dwayne Johnson-led series scored the week’s 25th spot with a 0.5 rating in adults 18-49, while midseason premiere of AMC’s “Fear the Walking Dead” landed in the top 10 with a 0.7. It was VH1’s “Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood” that reclaimed the top spot of the week, though, with its own 1.0.

Fox News’ “Hannity” led the week in total viewers yet again with its Tuesday night broadcast raking in 3.16 million. Meanwhile, MSNBC’s “Rachel Maddow Show” rounded out the top 3 with its Tuesday and Wednesday night episodes scoring the same number of total viewers (3.07 million).
