The beginning of the NFL Preseason was enough to topple “Dr. Pimple Popper” from its perch atop the Thursday cable ratings.

The NFL Network’s broadcast of the New York Jets playing the New York Giants scored a 0.5 rating in adults 18-49, beating most of its competition with a fair amount of ease. TLC’s “Dr. Pimple Popper,” on the other hand, crumbled from 0.5 to 0.4, blowing its lead and dropping from first to third place. Both the fourth and fifth slot went to “Jersey Shore: Family Vacation,” which brought in a pair of 0.4’s for MTV.

Elsewhere, HGTV’s “Flip or Flop” upgraded from a 0.3 to a 0.4, moving beyond USA’s “Queen of the South,” which remained at 0.3. “Million Dollar Listing” leapt from 0.2 to 0.3, posting Bravo’s sole top 25 entry for the night. TLC’s “Untold Stories of the E.R.” also ticked up from 0.2 to 0.3, as did “Beat Bobby Flay” on Food Network. Both “House Hunters” and “House Hunters International” seized 0.2’s for HGTV, while “BBQ Brawl: Flay V. Symon” dipped from 0.3 to 0.2 in its second week.
