Once again, it was ESPN’s weekly NBA basketball coverage that led the night in the Wednesday cable ratings this week, scoring 0.9 and 0.6 ratings in adults 18-49 throughout the night. Meanwhile, VH1’s “Black Ink Crew” followed closely behind, raking in a 0.6 for itself, just one-tenth lower than its previous 0.7. TBS’ “Full Frontal with Samantha Bee” also took a minor hit, dipping from a 0.5 to a 0.4.

The season 8 premiere of “Archer” grabbed a 0.4 on FXX as well, in line with the 0.4 its season 7 finale scored last June. Both MTV’s “Catfish: The TV Show” and OWN’s “Greenleaf” dipped this week also, falling from 0.4s to a 0.3s this time around.

Outside of the Top 25, “Underground” held steady with a 0.2 yet again, and “The Magicians” fell from a 0.3 to a 0.2 on SyFy.
