As usual, the MLB found itself at the top of the Thursday cable ratings.

FOX Sports got the privilege of airing the Houston Astros playing the New York Yankees, a game which scored a 1.5 rating in adults 18-49. This was almost twice the score of the NFL game between the Denver Broncos and the Kansas City Chiefs at 0.8 in second place, and was also a good deal stronger than the Astros vs. Rays game at 0.9 last week. A sustainment of the Broncos vs. Chiefs match took third place, bringing in an additional 0.7 for the NFL Network.

Once more in fourth place, MTV’s “Jersey Shore: Family Vacation” rose nonetheless from 0.6 to 0.7, building on its gains from last week. On HGTV, “Flip or Flop” did the same, remaining at the 0.3 it climbed to previously, the same score posted by “Live PD” on A&E. USA’s “Chrisley Knows Best” was another consistent 0.3, but on TruTV, “Impractical Jokers” managed to battle its way from 0.2 to 0.3. “Ex on the Beach,” however, was less lucky, and found itself once again trapped at 0.2 on MTV.
