Once again, it was ESPN’s NBA regular season coverage that landed on top in the Wednesday cable ratings this week. The network’s broadcast of the Clippers vs Golden State game led with a 0.7 rating in adults 18-49 and 1.715 million viewers. ESPN’s broadcast of the later game between Oklahoma City and Minnesota followed closely behind with a 0.7 as well.

In addition, The History Channel’s “Vikings” managed to maintain its previous 0.5 for the second week in a row, while “Knightfall” also held steady with another 0.2. Following its series premiere last week, Freeform’s “Grown-ish” took a minor hit, falling one-tenth from a 0.4 to a 0.3 this time around.

Meanwhile, “The Magicians” returned with its third season premiere on SyFy, which raked in a 0.3. This was two-tenths down from the 0.5 that its second season premiere had scored last year, but is the same as its season 2 finale. On VH1, “Black Ink Crew” held steady with a 0.7, while “The Librarians” remained outside of the Top 25, but still was able to keep its recent 0.3 streak going.
