“Yellowstone” corralled the competition to take the top slot of the Wednesday cable ratings.
The Paramount Network series, which was just given an early renewal yesterday, returned for its second season with a series high 0.5 rating in adults 18-49, and with 2,41 million viewers, scored its second-largest audience to date (behind only its series premiere’s 2.83 million viewers).
Bravo’s “Southern Charm” took the second slot, dipping from last week’s 0.5 down to 0.4. This was the same score held by the third place entry, “Live PD” at A&E, which was also down from 0.5.
Elsewhere, the season premiere of “Basketball Wives” at VH1 suffered a withering blow at 0.4, far beneath its 2018 premiere at 0.9. “Married at First Sight” brought in a 0.3 for Lifetime, the same score that “Forged in Fire” of Discovery Channel, “Guy’s Grocery Games” of Food Network, and “Property Brothers: Forever Home” of HGTV persisted at. “Catfish: The TV Show” joined them there for the second week in a row, landing alongside VH1’s “Tami Ever After” and Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show.”
On Investigation Discovery, “Lone Star Justice” collapsed from 0.3 to 0.2, as did “The Killer Beside Me.” “Full Frontal with Samantha Bee” brought in another 0.2 for TBS’ sole outing on the chart, a fate it shared with Freeform’s “Grown-ish.” Meanwhile, “My 600-lb Life” lost one-tenth of point and slipped to 0.2, while “Queen Sugar” on OWN matched its previous 0.2 but nearly slipped from the chart.
