VH1’s “Black Ink Crew: Chicago” nabbed the top spot of the night in the Wednesday cable ratings this week, ticking up from its previous 0.5 to a 0.6 rating in adults 18-49.

TLC’s “Dr. Pimple Popper” followed closely behind, but was down a tenth from the 0.6 it had scored a week ago to a 0.5 this time around. Bravo’s “The Real Housewives of New York City” also took a minor hit this week, falling from a 0.5 to a 0.4.

On the Paramount Network, “Yellowstone” continued its 0.4 streak, while USA’s “The Sinner” similarly maintained a 0.3. After spending several weeks outside of the top 25 as well, OWN’s “Queen Sugar” managed to climb back into the chart, scoring the same 0.2 as its most recent episodes.
