This week, the MLB continued its chokehold on the top of Thursday’s cable ratings.

The top game of the night was on FOX Sports, as the Tampa Bay Rays played the Houston Astros for a 0.9 rating in adults 18-49. This was just a hair lower than last week’s top game, when the Washington Nationals battled the Los Angeles Dodgers for a 1.0. Also at 0.9 was a New York Giants vs. New England Patriots NFL game on the NFL Network, which occupied both the second and third slots of the chart.

Down in fourth place, “Jersey Shore: Family Vacation” had something of a resurgence on MTV, rising from 0.5 to 0.6. On Adult Swim, “Genndy Tartakovsky’s Primal” remained at the 0.3 it has scored each night this week, while USA’s “Chrisley Knows Best” ascended from 0.2 to 0.3. “Ex on the Beach” of MTV lost the ground it gained last week and fell back to 0.2, the same score “Taken at Birth” posted on TLC. Finally, “Flip or Flop” brought HGTV a 0.3 instead of its usual 0.2, even as TruTV’s “Impractical Jokers” kept steady at 0.2.
