This week, the NFL continued its run at the top of the Thursday cable ratings.

The top game of the night came from the Baltimore Ravens playing the New York Jets for a 0.6 rating in adults 18-49. This was notably weaker than the Dallas Cowboys vs. Chicago Bears game at the top of last week, with its 0.8. It did, however, outpace the rest of its competition, including the sustained back half of the match at 0.5 in second place, and the 0.4 of the NBA game on TNT between the Philadelphia 76ers and the Boston Celtics.

Beyond the top 3, “Court Cam” aired back-to-back episodes on TNT, with the first holding at last week’s 0.4 and the second dropping to 0.3. On USA, “Temptation Island” recovered from 0.2 to 0.3, while “Floribama Shore” on MTV did the opposite, dropping from 0.4 to 0.3.

“Live PD Presents: PD Cam” at A&E continued once again with a 0.3, as did “Live PD: Wanted” on the same network. A bit further down, “Flip or Flop” fought its way back from 0.2 to bring HGTV a 0.3. The rest of the night’s programming primarily consisted of political or sports analysis.
