The Discovery Channel has maintained its dominance over the cable ratings this week, with its annual “Shark Week” broadcasts.

The network claimed the two top spots of the ratings Wednesday night, starting with the “Shark Tank Meets Shark Week” special, which scored a 0.7 rating in adults 18-49 with 1.60 million viewers, followed closely behind by “Sharkcam Stakeout” (0.6). VH1’s “Black Ink Crew Chicago,” meanwhile, rounded out the top 3 with a 0.6, up one-tenth from its previous 0.5.

On the Paramount Network, “Yellowstone” maintained a 0.3 for the second week in a row, and Bravo’s “Real Housewives of New York City,” similarly held steady with a 0.5. OWN’s “Queen Sugar” remained outside of the top 25 with another 0.2, as did the History Channel’s “SIX” (0.2).

Following the news of its cancellation last week as well, the series finale of USA’s “Colony” fell a tenth to a 0.1.
