The Wednesday cable ratings were a little quieter than usual this week, and were without any truly dominant ratings winners.

Bravo’s “Real Housewives of New Jersey” topped this week’s Wednesday chart with a 0.5 rating in adults 18-49, up one-tenth from the 0.4 that it scored a week ago. ESPN claimed the following two spots in the chart’s top 3 with its broadcasts of the Milwaukee vs. Golden State (0.4, 1.02 million viewers) and Denver vs. Dallas (0.4, 1.04 million) NBA games.

Elsewhere, VH1’s “Black Ink Crew: Chicago” stayed steady week-to-week by maintaining the same 0.3 rating as its last episode, as did the History Channel’s “Forged in Fire” (0.3).
