Following its premiere last week, MTV’s “Jersey Shore: Family Vacation” maintained its place atop the Thursday cable ratings, scoring the same 0.8 rating in adults 18-49 as it had a week ago. ESPN’s broadcast of the NCAA game between Northwestern and Purdue followed closely behind with a 0.7 and 1.74 million viewers.
On USA, “Queen of the South” was even yet again with another 0.4, while FX’s “Snowfall” held steady with a 0.4 of its own, despite taking another small hit in total viewers from 822,000 to 815,000. TruTV’s “Impractical Jokers” similarly maintained its previous 0.4 as well.
Outside of the top 25, USA’s “Shooter” continued its near season-long 0.2 streak, and ticked up slightly in total viewers from 700,000 to 729,000.
