The Wednesday cable ratings were predictably dominated by ESPN and the NBA this week.

The biggest game of the night saw the Golden State Warriors playing the Houston Rockets for a 0.9 rating in adults 18-49. This was an improvement of one-tenth of a point from when the Nuggets played the Lakers last week. It was also well ahead of the second slot, occupied by ESPN’s postgame show “After the Buzzer,” which netted a 0.7 itself to build on its previous 0.5. Finally, “The Challenge: War of the Worlds” brought MTV back into the top 3 simply by holding onto its past 0.5.

Lower on the chart, “The Real Housewives of New York City” lost 0.2 since it premiered last week, falling to 0.5. “Black Ink Crew” on VH1 raked in a 0.4, while TLC’s “My 600-lb Life” recovered to 0.4 after two weeks at 0.3. “Moonshiners” on Discovery Channel continued to run at 0.4, where History’s “Forged in Fire” landed yet again. “Guy’s Grocery Games” on Food Network also notched an unsurprising 0.3.
