CABLE HIGHLIGHTS:  After massive promotion, the big Andrew Lincoln exit episode of THE WALKING DEAD gained 0.12 from last week to 2.07; TALKING DEAD had a much higher 0.40 bump to 1.00, probably because viewers wanted an explanation of what they’d just seen (and didn’t see); in late-night, HISTORY OF HORROR was up 0.02 to 0.14.  Hallmark’s movie ROAD TO CHRISTMAS was at 0.52.  Nickelodeon’s morning SPONGEBOB ticked up to 0.29.  Adult Swim’s late-night DREAM CORP LLC was at 0.28/0.23, compared to last week’s 0.29/0.28.  Starz’s OUTLANDER returned for its 4th season at 0.21, down a tenth from the 2017 premiere, and down 0.09 from last season’s finale.  BBCAmerica’s DOCTOR WHO fell a steep 0.12 to 0.20.  On HBO, LAST WEEK TONIGHT dropped 0.07 to 0.20, the season finale of THE DEUCE ticked down to 0.10, and CAMPING was down 0.04 to 0.07.  TNT’s THE LAST SHIP lost 0.03 to 0.20.  Lifetime’s YOU was steady at 0.14.  On Showtime, RAY DONOVAN ticked up to 0.13, THE CIRCUS gained 0.03 to 0.07, KIDDING ticked down to 0.03/152K, and OUR CARTOON PRESIDENT returned at 0.02/108K.

    Can I have: ‘Air Disasters’ (Smithsonian, 8pm) and ‘Mighty Ships’ (Smithsonian, 9pm)? And as a friendly reminder for the text, Showtime’s ‘Our Cartoon President’ returned this past Sunday. Thanks!
