The NFL Network’s coverage of the Miami vs. Cincinnati football game scored the top spot in the Thursday cable ratings last week, experiencing a major increase from the previous week’s 1.5 to a 3.0 rating in adults 18-49. The game was carried solely on cable this week as opposed to a simulcast with CBS. The network’s post-game and pre-game specials both grabbed 1.2s.

Meanwhile, “Project Runway” managed to tick up from a 0.4 to a 0.5 on Lifetime, as ESPN once again held steady with its college football coverage scoring a 0.5 for the network, one tenth lower than its previous 0.6.
