This week, it wasn’t the NBA at the top of the Thursday cable ratings, but the NFL.
The NFL Network’s broadcast of the San Francisco 49ers playing the Arizona Cardinals scored a 0.7 rating in adults 18-49, topping the rest of the night with a fair amount of ease. That being said, it was noticeably lower than the NBA match between the Los Angeles Clippers and the Golden State Warriors last week at 0.9. In second place, the NFL Network picked up an additional 0.5 from the Cardinals vs. 49ers pre-kick, and in third place, “Jersey Shore: Family Vacation” sank all the way from 0.6 to 0.4.
Outside the top 3, “Ghost Adventures” brought in a 0.4 for the Travel Channel. This put it just a hair ahead of the Denver Nuggets vs. New Orleans Pelicans game at 0.3, along with a dearth of additional sports coverage. On Bravo, “Million Dollar Listing” moved from twenty-seventh place to fifteenth despite holding at 0.2, while “Temptation Island” on USA continued at 0.2, as well.
The night’s other two recurring 0.2’s came from both “House Hunters” and “House Hunters International” on HGTV, but “Home Sweet Homicide” on Investigation Discovery fought its way up from 0.1 to 0.2.
