The Discovery Channel’s “Alaskan Bush People” rose to the top in the Wednesday cable ratings this week, ticking up one-tenth from its previous 0.7 to a 0.8 in adults 18-49. ESPN’s College Basketball coverage followed behind with two 0.7 and 0.5 ratings throughout the night. After taking the top spot in the week before, “Black Ink Crew” dipped one-tenth down to a 0.6.

With its third episode, “Legion” continued to hold strong on FX, maintaining a 0.5 for the second week in a row. It was just slightly down in total viewers, though, scoring 1.043 million viewers this time around, as opposed to last week’s 1.1 million.

Both “Six” (0.4) and “The Magicians” (0.4) held steady on The History Channel and SyFy, respectively.
