The biggest event of the Wednesday cable ratings this week was the showdown between “Yellowstone” and “Basketball Wives” for the highest rating of the night.

It shouldn’t be an incredible surprise that the Paramount drama series came out on top, but with both shows at a 0.5 rating in adults 18-49, the margin of victory was slim. “Yellowstone” was consistent with its previous performance, but “Basketball Wives” has inched up gradually the last few weeks, this time rising from 0.4 to 0.5. Just below the heavier hitters, “Southern Charm” brought home the third slot for Bravo when it held onto its 0.4.

“Forged in Fire” was the leader of the pack beyond the top 3, returning from a week off to ascend from 0.3 to 0.4. On HGTV, “Property Brothers” grabbed the final 0.4 for the day, keeping ahead of TBS’ “Full Frontal with Samantha Bee” at 0.3 (up from 0.2) and Food Network’s “Guy’s Grocery Games” at the same rating.

“Married at First Sight” also held a 0.3 on Lifetime, even as MTV’s “Catfish: The TV Show” rose from 0.2 to 0.3 and FX’s “Snowfall” fell from 0.4 to 0.3 in its second week. Both “Strongest Man in History” and “Are You the One?” climbed their way from 0.2 to 0.3, as well.

On Comedy Central, “The Daily Show” pulled an unsurprising 0.2, finding common ground with the premiere of a new season of USA’s “Suits.” This was down one-tenth of a point from the previous season’s debut. Finally, a “Conan” special barely made it to the bottom few rungs of the chart with an additional 0.2 on TBS.
