With the NFL Preseason on NBC, the lead slot of the Thursday cable ratings went to “Jersey Shore: Family Vacation.”

The MTV reality series scored a 0.5 rating in adults 18-49, holding onto its score from last week as it moved from the second to first slot. Directly behind it was “Flip or Flop” on HGTV, having risen to 0.4 after a recent fall to 0.3. “Queen of the South” brought USA the final spot in the top 3 for the night, simply by clinging to its consistent 0.3.

Elsewhere, “House Hunters” continued at the 0.3 it rose to last week, keeping ahead of History’s “Alone,” which did the same. On Food Network, Bobby Flay made his first of several appearances on the chart with “Beat Bobby Flay” at 0.3, up from 0.2. “The Lies That Bind” brought Investigation Discovery a 0.3 as well, finding company in a repeat performance from “Impractical Jokers” on TRUTV at the same score. HGTV’s “House Hunters International” also upgraded from a 0.2 to 0.3.

“Deadly Women” on Investigation Discovery became the ranking 0.2 for the night, coming out ahead of “The Flay List” on Food Network. A set of recurring 0.2’s, meanwhile, came from “Million Dollar Listing” on Bravo, “BBQ Brawl: Flay vs. Symon” on Food Network, “Growing Up Hip Hop: Atlanta” on WETV, and “Going for Sold” on HGTV. “Mountain Men,” on the other hand, collapsed from 0.3 to 0.2, as did “Ex on the Beach” on MTV.
