MTV’s “Jersey Shore: Family Vacation” retook the no. 1 spot in the Thursday cable ratings this week with a 0.8 in adults 18-49, up one-tenth from its previous 0.7. The NFL Network’s broadcast of the Raiders vs. 49ers “Thursday Night Football” game followed closely behind with a 0.8 of its own. TNT’s back-to-back broadcasts of the Bucks vs. Celtics and Pelicans vs. Trail Blazers NBA games landed a little lower with matching 0.5s.

On A&E, “Live PD” raked in a 0.4, while the 2-part season 2 premiere of “Live PD Presents: PD Cam” posted a 0.4 and a 0.3.

Elsewhere, “How Far is Tattoo Far” was mostly steady with another pair of 0.3s on MTV, down just slightly from the 0.4 and 0.3 its episodes had scored last week. Bravo’s “Shahs of Sunset” maintained a 0.3 yet again.
