TLC’s “Dr. Pimple Popper” maintained its place at the top of the Wednesday cable ratings yet again this week, with the same 0.6 rating in adults 18-49 it had scored a week ago. VH1’s “Black Ink Crew: Chicago” followed closely behind with a 0.5, also even with its previous episode.

Following its season 2 premiere last week, USA’s “The Sinner” was steady with another 0.3, but down slightly in total viewers from 1.15 to 1.10 million this time around. It was a similar story with the Paramount Network’s “Yellowstone” as well, which raked in a 0.4 for the second week in a row.

Outside of the top 25, OWN’s “Queen Sugar” rounded out a fairly steady Wednesday night by maintaining its previous 0.2.
