As with Tuesday, the lack of Shark Week or any Democratic Debates meant that order was restored to the Wednesday cable ratings.

This created an opening for the return of Paramount’s “Yellowstone” to the no. 1 spot as it scored a 0.5 rating in adults 18-49. Positions aside, however, this was one-tenth of a point lower than the drama’s score last week. By slipping a bit, “Yellowstone” once more found itself facing stiff competition from “Basketball Wives” on VH1, which rose from several weeks at 0.4 to reach 0.5. Beneath them was Bravo’s “Southern Charm” with a consistent 0.4 to round out the top 3.

Elsewhere, “Forged in Fire” on History remained at the 0.3 it fell to last week, but even so it was able to claw its way from the seventeenth slot to the fourth. The recently-renewed “Snowfall” on FX also posted a consecutive 0.3, setting a pattern followed by “Married at First Sight” on Lifetime, “Guy’s Grocery Games” on Food Network, “Full Frontal with Samantha Bee” on TBS, and “Catfish: The TV Show” on MTV. Additionally, “The Wonderland Murders” on Investigation Discovery joined them there after recovering from 0.2 to 0.3.

On Discovery, “Expedition Unknown” and its 0.2 fell one-tenth of a point below its Shark Week special, while HGTV’s “House Hunters” and “House Hunters International” grabbed a pair of 0.2’s. History’s “The Strongest Man in History” also matched its previous 0.2, although “Property Brothers” stumbled from 0.3 to 0.2. At the very bottom of the chart, “Suits” posted another 0.2 for USA and “Queen Sugar” did the same for OWN.
