The victory was narrow, but ultimately “Dr. Pimple Popper” sat atop the Thursday cable ratings.

TLC’s infamous medical reality series scored a 0.5 rating in adults 18-49, outpacing everything else on the chart but failing to hold to the strength of the 0.7 it premiered at. Directly on its tail was MTV’s “Jersey Shore Family Vacation” at 0.5, also down from its premiere but only by one-tenth of a point. The second hour of “Family Vacation” rounded out the top 3 with a 0.4.

Elsewhere, “The Real Housewives of New York City” lost a bit of steam, bringing in a 0.3 for Bravo instead of the 0.4 it grabbed last week. USA’s “Queen of the South” held at 0.3, while a special episode of “Christina on the Coast” ticked up from 0.2 to 0.3. “Alone” on History also kept to a 0.3, along with TLC’s “Untold Stories of the E.R.”

Among the foremost 0.2’s was “Little Women Atlanta,” consistent week-to-week beside “Mountain Men” on History and “House Hunters” on HGTV. Additionally, Food Network was dealt a hand of 0.2’s by “Chopped” and “Beat Bobby Flay,” though the latter was down from a previous 0.3.
