ESPN’s broadcast of the Duke vs Indiana college basketball game scored the top spot in the Wednesday cable ratings this week with a 0.6 rating in adults 18-49 and 1.695 million viewers. The fifth season premiere of History Channel’s “Vikings” followed closely behind, and raked in a 0.6 for itself. While this scored the drama series the second-highest spot of the night, though, this was one-tenth down from the 0.7 that its mid-season premiere scored last year. In addition, VH1’s “Black Ink Crew: Chicago” did manage to maintain its previous 0.5.

After taking last week off as well, Comedy Central’s “South Park” rounded out the Top 3 of the night, but did dip one-tenth from its previous 0.6 to a 0.5 this time around, while “Broad City” held steady with another 0.3, also on Comedy Central. Outside of the Top 25, USA’s “Mr. Robot” just barely maintained a 0.2 for the second week in a row.
