“Southern Charm” was unable to hold its throne atop the Wednesday cable ratings.
Instead, “Live PD” on A&E was able to unseat it, rising to the peak of the chart by scoring a 0.5 rating in adults 18-49. This was not a resounding defeat for “Southern Charm,” however; the Bravo reality series remained close on the tail of “Live PD” by racking up yet another consecutive 0.5. This was also the score that allowed fellow Bravo series “The Real Housewives of New York City” to take third place as it built on the 0.4 it scored last week.
Lurking below the top of the chart was HGTV’s “Property Brothers: Forever Home” at 0.3, aligning with where it fell previously. “Forged in Fire” on Discovery Channel also found itself at 0.3 once again. In its second week, “Lone Star Justice” at Investigation Discovery retained a 0.3, while “The Killer Beside Me” notched up in its second week, moving from 0.2 to 0.3.
Joining them at 0.3 were “My 600-lb Life” on TLC and “Guy’s Grocery Games” on Food Network, along with “Catfish: The TV Show” as it returned to the chart for the first time since January (when it scored a 0.2). Meanwhile, “Full Frontal with Samantha Bee” returned to TBS for a 0.2, where “House Hunters” fell after a 0.3 last week and “Grown-ish” on Freeform continued treading water. OWN debuted a new season of “Queen Sugar” at 0.2 as well, although this was lower than the 0.3 its last season concluded at.
