Once again, it was the Discovery Channel’s annual “Shark Week” broadcasts that claimed the top spots in the cable ratings last night. The “Tiger Shark Invasion” and “Sharkwrecked” specials led Thursday’s top 25 with a pair of 0.6 ratings in adults 18-49. Meanwhile, the second reunion episode for this season of Bravo’s “Southern Charm” followed closely behind with a 0.6 as well, the same as its previous episode.

Following its season 2 premiere last week, FX’s “Snowfall” actually ticked up one-tenth from a 0.5 to a 0.6 with 888,000 viewers. On USA, “Queen of the South” was steady with a 0.4, while the History Channel’s “Alone” ticked up one-tenth (0.4).

Outside of the top 25, Freeform’s “Marvel’s Cloak and Dagger” stayed even with another 0.2, as did USA’s “Shooter” (0.2).
