Like it has the past several weeks, “Thursday Night Football” easily led the cable ratings this week.

The NFL Network’s broadcast of the Green Bay vs. Seattle game won the night with a 1.0 rating in adults 18-49 and 2.84 million viewers, even with how the network’s “TNF” broadcast had scored a week ago. MTV’s “Jersey Shore: Family Vacation” (0.7) came second, down a tenth from its previous 0.8. The network’s special “A Very Jersey Friendsgiving” landed fairly high as well, with a 0.5 and 786,000 viewers.

Elsewhere, TNT’s broadcast of the Warriors vs. Rockets NBA game grabbed a 0.5 and landed in the top 5 of the night, while the later Spurs vs. Clippers game (0.4) scored a little lower. Bravo’s “Shahs of Sunset” held steady with another 0.3, as did A&E’s “Live PD Presents: PD Cam” (0.3).
