It was a fairly steady night in the Wednesday cable ratings this week.

ESPN’s broadcast of the Portland vs. LA Lakers NBA game led with a 1.0 rating in adults 18-49 and 2.07 million viewers. The season finale of FX’s “American Horror Story: Apocalypse” came second with a 0.8, even with that it had scored last Wednesday. Comedy Central’s “South Park” held steady with yet another 0.5.

On VH1, “Black Ink Crew” took a minor hit, falling from its previous 0.6 to a 0.5 this time around. Bravo’s “Real Housewives of New Jersey” similarly slipped from a 0.5 to a 0.4, while OWN’s “Greenleaf” managed to maintain a 0.3 for the second week in a row.
