This week, it was the NHL that led the Wednesday cable ratings.
NBC Sports Network broadcasted the final match for the Stanley Cup between the St. Louis Blues and the Boston Bruins. The game scored a 1.1 rating in adults 18-49, putting it head and shoulders above any competition. In second place, “Southern Charm” on Bravo grabbed a 0.5, matching the score it premiered at yet again. “The Real Housewives of New York City” on Bravo rounded out the top of the chart with the same 0.4 it fell to previously.
On HGTV, the series premiere of “Property Brothers: Forever Home” swooped in to nab a 0.4, beating the 0.3 its flagship series scored last week. On MTV, “The Challenge: War of the Worlds” aired a reunion at 0.3, half the score of its most recent episode, while History Channel’s “Forged in Fire” slipped from 0.4 to land at 0.3.
0.3 was similarly the recurring residence of “Guy’s Grocery Games” on Food Network, “My 600-lb Life” on TLC, and “House Hunters” on HGTV. Investigation Discovery’s “Homicide City” also reascended to 0.3 after a brief stint at 0.2, while “The Butcher” on History didn’t suffer any loss from the 0.3 it premiered at. “The Daily Show,” on the other hand, fell from sixteenth to twenty-second place despite holding onto a 0.2 score.
