For the second week in a row, ESPN’s NFL Preseason coverage led the night in the Thursday cable ratings. This time around, the network’s broadcast of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs Jacksonville Jaguars landed on top with a 0.9 rating in adults 18-49. This was notably higher than the 0.6 that last Thursday’s Houston vs Carolina preseason game scored. Once again, TruTV’s “Impractical Jokers” followed closely behind with a 0.5 as well.

Meanwhile, MTV’s “Nick Cannon Presents: Wild ‘N Out” managed to keep its 0.4 streak going, while TBS’ new hotel comedy, “The Guest Book,” took a minor hit falling from a 0.5 to a 0.4. In addition, USA’s “Queen of the South” held steady with a 0.4 and “Alone” rose from a 0.3 to a 0.4 on The History Channel.
