It was no big surprise that the NBA took home the top 2 slots on Wednesday night. ESPN’s broadcasts of the Toronto Raptors vs. Golden State Warriors and Oklahoma City Thunder vs. New Orleans Pelicans each took a respective 0.8 and 0.7 rating in the 18-49 demographic. The Raptors vs. Warriors game matched ratings with last week’s broadcast of the Spurs against the Lakers, which had also claimed the top slot.

Just below the NBA, “Black Ink Crew” on VH1 scored a 0.6 rating, which was an increase of one-tenth from last week.  This was a cut above its usual rating of 0.5. Comedy Central’s “South Park” also rose, returning to its former rating of 0.5 after having dipped a bit previously.

“Vikings” on History Channel scored a 0.4, which was a hold from where it dropped during its previous broadcast. Additionally, “The Real Housewives of Dallas” barely managed to remain in the top 25, dropping one-tenth of a point to 0.2.
