With the Golden State Warriors in the equation, it should be little surprise that it was the NBA at the top of the Wednesday cable ratings.

ESPN’s broadcast of the Warriors going to battle against the Los Angeles Lakers scored a powerful 0.9 rating in adults 18-49, easily surpassing anything else that aired on Wednesday. It also defeated last week’s top game, when the Warriors played the Houston Rockets for a 0.6. Speaking of the Rockets, they took the second spot on the chart this week in their match against the Los Angeles Clippers, scoring another 0.6. Then, breaking away from sports, “South Park” on Comedy Central rounded out the top 3 by holding at 0.5.

Further down, on FX, “American Horror Story: 1984” fell from third to fourth place even as it clung to another 0.5. TNT’s “All Elite Wrestling” remained at 0.4, as did Bravo’s “The Real Housewives of New Jersey,” but “Black Ink Crew” on VH1 managed to rise from 0.3 to 0.4. Meanwhile, on MTV, “The Challenge: War of the Worlds” crumbled from 0.4 down to 0.3.

BET had something of a resurgence this week, as both of its usual shows returned to the top 25. “The Oval” bounced back from 0.2 to 0.3, while “Sistas” rose above its 0.2 to reach 0.3. A dearth of CNN Special Coverage of the Presidential Impeachment Hearings peaked at 0.3, the same score HGTV’s “Property Brothers: Forever Home” maintained. Finally, near the bottom of the chart, “Guy’s Grocery Games” on Food Network experienced its own rebound from 0.2 to 0.3, even as “WWE NXT” continued at 0.3.
