The reign of “Dr. Pimple Popper” continued at the top of the Thursday cable ratings.

TLC’s medical reality series once again found itself in the no. 1 slot, simply by holding to its 0.5 rating in adults 18-49. By remaining at this score, it persisted above the fray Discovery’s Shark Week presented to most of the rest of Thursday’s cable programming. The second slot, for instance, was seized by “Monster Mako: Perfect Predator” at 0.4, while the third was taken by “Great White Kill Zone: Guadalupe” at the same rating.

MTV’s “Jersey Shore Family Vacation” is ordinarily a strong competitor for “Dr. Pimple Popper,” but this week it fell from second to fourth place when it scored a 0.4 instead of a 0.5. On HGTV, “Flip or Flop” posted a 0.3, while USA’s “Queen of the South” bagged its usual 0.3, as well. “BBQ Brawl: Flay V. Symon” premiered on Food Network at 0.3, keeping just ahead of HGTV’s “House Hunters International” as it racked up yet another 0.2.

On TLC, “Untold Stories of the E.R.” continued at the 0.2 it fell to last week, as did “Alone” on History Channel. Other consistent 0.2’s included “Beat Bobby Flay” on Food Network, and WETV’s “Growing Up Hip Hop: Atlanta,” although History’s “Mountain Men” dropped to 0.2 from 0.3.
