The NFL Network’s broadcast of the Panthers vs. Steelers “Thursday Night Football” game took the no. 1 spot in the cable ratings this week. It posted a 1.0 rating in adults 18-49 with 2.83 million, up two-tenths from the 0.8 that last week’s “TNF” broadcast had scored on the network.

MTV’s “Jersey Shore: Family Vacation” came second, and maintained a 0.8 for the second week in a row. TNT’s broadcasts of the Bucks vs. Warriors and Rockets vs. Thunder NBA games both landed in the top 6 of the night as well, with 0.6 and 0.4s.

Elsewhere, MTV’s “How Far is Tattoo Far” held steady yet again with back-to-back 0.3s. Bravo’s “Shahs of Sunset” was also even with another 0.3, while A&E’s “Live PD Presents: PD Cam” mostly matched its season premiere last week, with a pair of 0.3s.
