“The Challenge: War of the Worlds” once again conquered the Wednesday cable ratings.

The MTV series scored a 0.5 rating in adults 18-49, pushing past its competition despite losing one-tenth of a point since last week. In close pursuit, however, was VH1’s “Black Ink Crew” with yet another 0.5. Finally, filling the void left by the NBA, Bravo’s “The Real Housewives of New York City” notched the same 0.4 it landed at previously.

Along the rest of the chart, “Full Frontal with Samantha Bee” on TBS scored a typical 0.3, but that was enough to place it in the top 5. HGTV’s “House Hunters International” fared similarly, continuing at its usual 0.3 but ranking just above “Full Frontal.” It is rare that either series lands at such a lofty position.

On TLC, “My 600-lb Life” remained trapped at 0.3, along with “Moonshiners” on Discovery, “The Daily Show” on Comedy Central, and “House Hunters” on HGTV. Additionally, FX’s “What We Do in the Shadows” made its top 25 debut in its second week, climbing from 0.2 to 0.3.
