Cable Ratings: Fear The Walking Dead Tops Westworld

at .

Fear The Walking Dead is still a hit for AMC. 

The zombie drama secured 3.1 million viewers and a 1.1 rating among adults 18-49. It was down a bit from last week's The Walking Dead fueled premiere. 

However, it emerged as the highest-rated scripted series of the night, and that's a good thing.

Meanwhile, Westworld returned to the air after a lengthy hiatus, and the HBO epic turned in ratings that were on par with its freshman season. 

It had 2.1 million viewers and a 0.9 rating. It looks like those thinking a Game of Thrones-like surge in the ratings was on the cards were mistaken.

Over on Showtime, Homeland (1.4 million/0.3 rating) and Billions (0.9 million/0.2 rating) were in line with their most recent episodes. 

BBC America's thrilling Killing Eve is struggling to attract a substantial audience. Killing Eve Season 1 Episode 3 attracted 0.4 million viewers and a 0.1 rating.

At least fans can rest assured that more episodes will be produced as the network has already ordered Season 2 as a result of the critical acclaim the series has achieved.

Finally, The Royals (0.4 million/0.2 rating) and The Arrangement (0.4 million/0.2 rating) are both struggling. Could E! say goodbye to one or both of these series?
