Without any special sports broadcasts on to dominate, the week’s cable ratings were led by a pair of unscripted broadcasts.

The first part of its “Tell All” special made TLC’s “90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After?” the week’s highest-rated cable show, with a 0.9 rating in the adults 18-49 demo. USA’s weekly “WWE Monday Night Raw” broadcast captured the following three spots in the 18-49 chart, after scoring a pair of 0.8s and a 0.7 across its 3-hour run time.

Meanwhile, Fox News had just as large of a presence in the total viewers chart as it did the previous week, scoring a total of 17 of the week’s 25 most-watched broadcasts once again. The cable news network grabbed the chart’s top 11 spots as well, with the Wednesday night episode of “Tucker Carlson Tonight” (4.02 million viewers) landing at no. 1.
