A live NBA game topped this week’s Wednesday cable ratings.

ESPN’s broadcast of the Portland Trail Blazers vs. Houston Rockets NBA game led Wednesday’s cable chart with a 0.4 rating in the adults 18-49 demo, and a 1.13 million viewer audience. MSNBC’s “Rachel Maddow Show” followed closely behind with a 0.4 of its own, while Bravo’s “Real Housewives of New Jersey” rounded out the night’s top 3 with a 0.4 as well – down one-tenth from its 0.5 a week ago.

The Discovery Channel’s “Alaskan Bush People” went the opposite way of “Real Housewives,” and managed to tick up from a 0.3 to a 0.4 rating this week. On VH1, “Black Ink Crew: Chicago” held steady with yet another 0.3, and the History Channel’s “Forged in Fire” (0.3) also stayed even week-to-week.
