“Impractical Jokers” landed on top in the Thursday cable ratings this week, breaking the NFL Preseason’s recent winning streak in the ratings. The TruTV series did it after ticking up one-tenth from its previous 0.5 to a 0.6 rating in adults 18-49 this time around. The NFL Network’s coverage of the game between the Miami Dolphins and Philadelphia Eagles followed closely behind with a 0.4 and 1.378 million total viewers.

On MTV, “Nick Cannon Presents: Wild ‘N Out” landed in the Top 5 of the night also, holding steady with a 0.4 once again. Meanwhile, Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah” scored a 0.3 on the network, fairly in line with its previous numbers. Both TBS’ “The Guest Book” and USA’s “Queen of the South” managed to maintain their previous 0.4 ratings this week as well.
