The status quo held for Wednesday night’s cable ratings.

As usual, the top slot went to ESPN and the NBA, with a broadcast of the San Antonio Spurs vs. the Philadelphia 76ers scoring a 0.6 rating in adults 18-49. This was one-tenth of a point lower than last week’s top performer, in which the Toronto Raptors played the Boston Celtics.

The second slot was also filled by the NBA, with the Denver Nuggets playing the Utah Jazz to score a 0.5 for the night. That score matched up poorly with last week’s performance, as well; the previous Wednesday’s second rank belonged to the Pelicans playing the Warriors for a 0.7. Rounding out the top 3 was “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” on Bravo, even though it ticked down from 0.6 to 0.5.

Beyond the NBA, “Love & Hip Hop Miami” on VH1 clung to its 0.4, while “Black Ink Crew Chicago” on the same network fell even further to match “Hip Hop.” History’s “Vikings” has fully committed to 0.4, receiving the same score week after week. “Moonshiners” on Discovery fell one-tenth to 0.3, while “Property Brothers” stayed put at 0.3.
