ESPN led the night in the Wednesday cable ratings this week, with its broadcasts of the Charlotte vs Houston and Oklahoma City vs Indiana NBA basketball games scoring 0.7 and 0.6 ratings in adults 18-49. Following its season premiere last week as well, VH1’s “Black Ink Crew” took a minor hit, falling from its previous 0.8 to a 0.6 this time around. The History Channel’s “Vikings” still landed fairly high in the ratings this week, despite falling one-tenth from a 0.6 to a 0.5, with 2.020 million viewers.

On TNT, the season 4 premiere of “The Librarians” scored a 0.3, which was down two-tenths from the 0.5 that it’s season 3 premiere had scored. However, the series’ move from Sunday night to Wednesday nights could account for the ratings drop.

SyFy’s “Happy!” also fell out of the Top 25 this week with its second official episode, which dipped two-tenths from a 0.4 to a 0.2. With its series premiere as well, “Knightfall” raked in a 0.3 on The History Channel, while the season finale of “Mr. Robot” saw the USA series holding steady with yet another 0.2.
