Without any major cable sports broadcasts to compete with, MTV’s “Jersey Shore: Family Vacation” climbed back to the top of the Thursday cable ratings this week with a 1.2 rating in adults 18-49. This was up two-tenths from its previous 1.0. A late-night edition of ESPN’s “SportsCenter” followed behind with a 0.5, while ESPN’s NBA pre-game special scored an additional 0.4.

Bravo’s “Southern Charm” managed to land within the top 3 of the night as well, by holding steady with yet another 0.5 and 1.42 million viewers. On MTV, “Ex on the Beach” rose one-tenth to a 0.5 this time around. Meanwhile, Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah” landed in the top 15 with another 0.3 – the same as its previous episode – and 763,000 total viewers.
