Similar to last week, MTV’s “Jersey Shore Family Vacation” led the Thursday cable ratings this week with a 1.0 rating in adults 18-49, down just one-tenth from its previous 1.1. The NBC Sports Network’s live broadcast of the NHL conference finals game between Tampa Bay and Washington followed closely behind with a 0.7 and 2.05 million viewers.

Meanwhile, “Ex on the Beach” raked in a 0.5 for the second week in a row on MTV. Bravo’s “Southern Charm” maintained its own 0.5 yet again as well, while VH1’s “RuPaul’s Drag Race” took a minor hit this time around, falling one-tenth from a 0.4 to a 0.3. After ticking down slightly last week as well, the History Channel’s “Swamp People” held steady with another 0.3.

Freeform’s “Siren” managed to climb just barely back into the top 25 of the night with a 0.2, the same as what it has scored in previous weeks.
