Once again, the NBA held the top of the Wednesday cable ratings.

In first place was ESPN’s broadcast of the Golden State Warriors squaring off against the Portland Trail Blazers, which culminated in a 0.6 rating in adults 18-49. This was dead even with the top game from last week, in which the San Antonio Spurs played the Warriors. In second place, the Houston Rockets battled the Minnesota Timberwolves for a 0.5, which was also a match for the second place game (Wizards vs. Bucks) from last week. Finally, the third slot was rounded out by “The Challenge” on MTV, holding on to the 0.5 it premiered at last week.

Further down the chart, “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” on Bravo and “Black Ink Crew Chicago” on VH1 both stumbled from 0.5 to 0.4 this week. “Full Frontal with Samantha Bee” brought home a 0.4 for TBS, while Discovery Channel’s “Moonshiners” remained trapped at 0.3. “Property Brothers” on HGTV returned to the chart in twenty-third place despite falling from 0.3 to 0.2, but “My 600-lb Life” swelled from 0.3 to 0.4.
