There was new blood at the top of Thursday’s cable ratings.
“Double Shot at Love with DJ Pauly D and Vinny” on MTV was the top performer of the night, scoring a pair of 0.5 ratings in adults 18-49 to occupy the top two slots. This was a significant improvement from other “Jersey Shore” spinoffs, like “Game of Clones,” although it remains to be seen whether or not “Double Shot” will be able to hold its momentum. The third slot was rounded out by the 2019 Masters Golf Tournament on ESPN with another 0.5.
As for the rest of the chart, “Impractical Jokers” on TRUTV upgraded from a 0.2 to a 0.3, while a BET memorial for murdered musician and philanthropist Nipsey Hussle scored a 0.3. “Swamp People” on History Channel moved up to fourth place despite remaining at 0.3, which was also the domain of “Beat Bobby Flay” on Food Network yet again.
“RuPaul’s Drag Race” stumbled on VH1, falling to 0.2 from 0.3, a fate it shared with “House Hunters” on HGTV.
