Basketball’s stranglehold on the Wednesday cable ratings came up short this week.
Instead, it was “The Challenge: War of the Worlds” that came out on top. The MTV series scored a 0.6 rating in adults 18-49, and although it tends to land at that same number week after week, this time it was enough to climb to the peak of the chart.
Close behind on ESPN was the Indiana Pacers vs. Oklahoma City Thunder game at 0.5. This was down one-tenth of a point from the highest rated game last week, in which the NCAA’s Arizona State Sun Devils played the St. John’s Red Storm. “Black Ink Crew” on VH1 managed to squeeze into third place with the same 0.5 it previously picked up.
Further along, “The Real Housewives of New York City” on VH1 remained at the 0.4 it fell to last Wednesday, while Food Network’s “Guy’s Grocery Games” continued to inhabit 0.3. “My 600-lb Life” on TLC failed to climb back to 0.4 and stayed trapped at 0.3, the same score “Moonshiners” on Discovery slipped to last week. Both HGTV’s “House Hunters” and “Property Brothers” also continued at 0.3.
