This week, the NBA returned to take the top of the Wednesday cable ratings by force.

On ESPN, the San Antonio Spurs played the Golden State Warriors to receive a 0.6 in adults 18-49. Despite such a modest rating, that was more than enough to take the top slot on the chart. Trailing behind it was another NBA game, in which the Washington Wizards went down to defeat at the hands of the Milwaukee Bucks for a 0.5. In third place was “The Challenge” on MTV, which debuted a new season to take home a 0.5 rating.

On Bravo, “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” was pushed out of the top 3, with its third consecutive 0.5 score being enough for it to take the fourth slot. “Black Ink Crew Chicago” on VH1 received the same score, clinging to the improvement from its previous broadcast. Discovery Channel’s “Moonshiners” did the exact opposite, falling back to 0.3 after it had climbed to 0.4 last week, while both “House Hunters” and “House Hunters International” maintained their regular audiences for their usual pair of 0.3’s.
