The NFL Network continued to win over the rest of the network’s in the Thursday cable ratings this week. The coverage did take another hit, however, falling from last week’s 1.4 to 1.2 rating in adults 18-49, as the Los Angeles vs. Seattle game raked in 2.96 million viewers. Meanwhile, the network’s pre and post-game specials managed to hold steady, maintaining 0.7 and 0.5 ratings, respectively, for the second week in a row.

On Lifetime, “Project Runway” continued to stay in range for its current season, scoring a 0.4 once again, while TNT’s broadcast of the New York vs Golden State NBA Basketball game landing near the top of the night also with a 0.6.

The cable debut of “Nashville” — a sneak peek of the Season 5 premiere that aired at staggered times on CMT and four other Viacom channels — didn’t do that much. The show drew a cumulative 0.5 and 1.74 million viewers, with CMT getting a 0.1 and 422,000 viewers. (Nick at Nite’s telecast drew the biggest portion of the total at 0.2 and 644,000.)
