The top 3 entries of the Thursday cable ratings were an unusual group this week.
Dominant among all broadcasts Thursday night was “Double Shot at Love With DJ Pauly D & Vinny” on MTV. The reality series managed to outperform everything else despite clinging to a mere 0.4 rating in adults 18-49, the same place it has remained for four weeks in a row. Behind “Double Shot” was “RuPaul’s Drag Race” on VH1, which overcame a 0.2 last week to rise to 0.3. “NBA: The Jump” rounded out the premier slots of the chart with a 0.3, having risen from 0.1.
Further along, a host of episodes of HGTV’s “House Hunters” peaked at 0.3, up from 0.2, while “Christina on the Coast” on the same network built on the 0.2 it premiered at to reach 0.3. “Impractical Jokers” on TRUTV remained at 0.3, where it was joined by Lifetime’s “Little Women Atlanta,” which climbed there from 0.2.
“Beat Bobby Flay” from Food Network could not duplicate this feat, remaining trapped at 0.2, while “Project Runway” slumped from 0.3 back to its standard 0.2.
