Without any major political upheaval this week, the Wednesday cable ratings returned to a more normal state of affairs.

The top entry on the chart was an ESPN broadcast of the Denver Nuggets vs. LA Lakers game, bringing in a 0.8 rating in adults 18-49. This marked an improvement of one-tenth of a point from last week’s top game, in which the New Orleans Pelicans played the Lakers.

In the second slot, “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” on Bravo came in with a 0.6, picking up from the 0.5 it had scored several weeks in a row. Just behind “Housewives” was another NBA outing; the Sixers were narrowly defeated by the Chicago Bulls, picking up a 0.6. This was the same score as the Trailblazers vs. Celtics match from last week, although that game made it to the second slot.

Beyond the top of the chart, the eleventh season of “The Real Housewives of New York City” premiered on Bravo at 0.6. MTV’s “The Challenge” was pushed from the top 3 despite holding onto its fifth consecutive 0.5, while “Black Ink Crew Chicago” on VH1 clung to the 0.4 it fell to last week. “Moonshiners” on Discovery rose above its usual 0.3 to nab a 0.4, even as TLC’s “My 600-lb Life” continued at the 0.3 it previously sank to.
