It was a rerun-heavy night in the Wednesday cable ratings this week, with college basketball and a History Channel original series being among the few to break out near the top programs of the night.

ESPN’s coverage of the college basketball game between Kentucky and Louisville scored the top spot in the cable ratings this week with a 0.8 rating in adults 18-49. With several reruns separating the two games as well, the network’s coverage of the BYU vs Wyoming game also performed well, scoring a 0.7 in the night.

Meanwhile, The History Channel’s “Vikings” managed to maintain a 0.6 rating for the second week in a row, after taking a small hit a few weeks back.
