The cable ratings of the Thursday after Thanksgiving reflected a return to form.
For the top slot of the chart, the Dallas Cowboys played the Chicago Bears on the NFL Network for a 0.8 rating in adults 18-49. This was a good deal stronger than last week’s top game, in which Ole Miss faced Mississippi State college on ESPN for a 0.4. Second place on the chart went to the sustained back half of the Cowboys vs. Bears match, while third place went to the premiere of “Court Cam” on A&E as it debuted at 0.4.
Further along, the night’s final 0.4 came from “Floribama Shore” on MTV, marking an increase of one-tenth of a point since its last episode. “Live PD Presents: PD Cam” at A&E was steadfast at 0.3, meanwhile, as was “Live PD: Wanted.” On MTV, “Ex on the Beach” was at 0.3, while “Temptation Island” of USA fizzled out a bit and slipped from 0.3 to 0.2. “Flip or Flop” at HGTV, on the other hand, remained steady at 0.2.
