Once again, it was “Black Ink Crew: Chicago” that grabbed the top spot of the night in the Wednesday cable ratings this week.

The VH1 series scored a 0.5 rating in adults 18-49, the same as what it had scored a week ago, with 1.10 million viewers. Bravo’s “Real Housewives of New York City” similarly maintained its previous 0.5. Following its Tuesday premiere as well, OWN’s “Greenleaf” made its Wednesday night return with a 0.3 and 1.39 million viewers, down a tenth from the 0.4 it had scored the night before.

On USA, “The Sinner” continued its season-long 0.3 streak, while “Suits” took a hit this time around, falling one-tenth from a 0.3 to a 0.2.
