It was a fairly low night in the Wednesday cable ratings this week. ESPN led with its broadcast of the Golden State vs Portland NBA basketball game, which scored a 0.7 rating in adults 18-49 with 1.69 million viewers. The network’s broadcast of the earlier game between Boston and the LA Clippers followed closely behind with a 0.5. Part of the NBC Sports network’s continued coverage of the Winter Olympics rounded out the Top 3 of the night with a 0.5 as well.

In addition, OWN’s “If Loving You is Wrong” dropped one-tenth from its previous 0.4 to a 0.3. Meanwhile, FX’s “American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace” was pushed out of the Top 25 and fell one-tenth from a 0.3 to a 0.2 rating.

Also outside of the Top 25, SyFy’s “The Magicians” was able to maintain its previous 0.3 once again, while the Paramount Network’s “Waco” similarly held steady with another 0.3. Unlike in recent weeks, though, Freeform’s “Grown-ish” did take a minor hit, falling one-tenth from a 0.3 to a 0.2.
