Without any major sports broadcasts on to dominate the competition, a number of weekly shows rose back to the top of the cable ratings for the week of Jan. 6.

TLC’s “90 Day Fiancé” topped the week’s adults 18-49 chart with a 0.8 rating, tying with “Hannity,” “WWE Monday Night Raw,” “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” and the Lakers vs. Mavericks broadcast on ESPN for the highest 18-49 demo rating of the week.

Meanwhile, cable news dominated the week in total viewers, as Fox News generated 23 of the week’s 25 most-watched cable shows. The Tuesday night edition of “Hannity” landed highest, with a 5.74 million viewer audience.
