Following its season premiere last week, VH1’s “RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars” took a minor hit in the Thursday cable ratings this week, falling one-tenth from its previous 0.5 to a 0.4 rating in adults 18-49 with 777,000 viewers. Meanwhile, TNT led the night once again, starting with its broadcast of the Thunder vs Nuggets NBA basketball game, which raked in a 0.6 on the network. The network’s broadcast of the other, earlier NBA game between the Rockets and the Spurs followed closely behind as well with a 0.5.

Despite finding a spot for itself the last two weeks, however, the latest installment of the Paramount Network’s “Lip Sync Battle” saw the reality competition series falling out of the Top 25 of the night with a 0.2 rating, one-tenth less than its previous 0.3. In addition, MTV’s “Nick Cannon’s Wild ‘N Out’ managed to hold steady with a 0.3 for the second week in a row.
