Sunday’s edition of “Westworld” drew a slightly smaller audience than the previous week’s installment.

According to live+same-day data posted by Showbuzz, Sunday’s “Westworld” drew a 0.63 adults 18-49 rating and averaged 1.59 million overall viewers.

The numbers trail the 0.64 rating and 1.63 million viewer mark posted by last week’s episode.

This week’s adults 18-49 rating actually ranks as a new series low, although demographic data is of less importance to HBO (which relies on subscriptions) than it is for advertisement-supported networks.

Despite the slight decline, “Westworld” still ranked as Sunday’s #1 cable original in adults 18-49. Only “Fear The Walking Dead” (0.85) and an NHL playoff game (0.66) fared better.

Through four episodes, the second season of “Westworld” has not markedly built upon the first season in terms of live+same-day audience. It nonetheless remains a solid draw, particularly once data from DVR, on-demand, encores and streaming is included. “Westworld” has already been renewed for season three.

Sunday’s “Westworld” led into the season finale of “Silicon Valley,” which drew a 0.31 rating and 0.71 million viewers.

HBO’s Sunday also included the season finale of “Barry” (0.18, 0.55 million) and “Last Week Tonight” (0.33, 1.03 million).
