“Thursday Night Football” maintained its place atop the cable ratings yet again this week.
The NFL Network’s broadcast of the New York Jets vs. Cleveland Browns game grabbed the no. 1 spot of the night with a 3.0 rating in adults 18-49 with 8.63 million viewers – up significantly from last week’s “TNF” broadcast (2.6, 7.02 million). The NFL Network’s pre and post-game coverage specials rounded out the top 3 of the night as well, with 1.6 and 1.1s.
Elsewhere, MTV’s “Jersey Shore: Family Vacation” held steady with another 0.8. The season 2 finale of the recently-renewed “Snowfall,” however, slipped one-tenth from its previous 0.4 to a 0.3 – down from its overall 0.4 season average as well. Meanwhile, Bravo’s “Shahs of Sunset” scored a 0.3, even with what it had scored a week ago.
