The NFL network’s coverage of the NFL preseason led the Thursday cable ratings this week.

Broadcasts of the Browns vs Giants and Cowboys vs 49ers games scored the top 2 spots of the night with 0.6 and 0.5 ratings in adults 18-49, steady with what the preseason games grabbed on the network this time last year. A&E’s “Live PD: PD Cam” followed behind with a 0.5 as well.

On FX, “Snowfall” maintained its previous 0.4 yet again with 975,000 viewers, while USA’s “Queen of the South” ticked up one-tenth from its previous 0.3 to a 0.4 this time around. Elsewhere, the History Channel’s “Alone” was down a tenth to a 0.3, and following its premiere last week, Bravo’s “Shahs of Sunset” was even with another 0.3.

Outside of the top 25, USA’s “Shooter” continued its near season-long 0.2 streak.
