The champion of the Thursday cable ratings this week was, once again, “Double Shot at Love With DJ Pauly D & Vinny.”
The MTV reality series was able to reclaim the top spot simply by maintaining the 0.4 rating in adults 18-49 it has held for five weeks now. This allowed it to outpace the season four premiere of “Queen of the South” on USA, which returned at 0.3, having lost one-tenth of a point from its last season finale. “Live PD” on A&E rounded out the topmost slots of the chart, bringing in another 0.3.
On History Channel, new seasons of “Mountain Men” and “Alone” also debuted, bringing in a 0.3 and a 0.2 for the network, respectively. “Project Runway” of VH1 was wedged firmly between them on the chart, having held onto its own 0.3 for the second consecutive week.
A&E also aired a new series, “Hero Ink,” which began its chart run at 0.2. It was joined there by “Christina on the Coast” on HGTV and “Little Women Atlanta” on Lifetime as they fell from 0.3, along with repeat 0.2 offenders “Beat Bobby Flay” of Food Network, “Conan” of TBS, and both “Murder Chose Me” and “Murder Loves Company” of Investigation Discovery.
