This week, the NBA returned to the top of the Wednesday cable ratings.

The uppermost slot of the chart went to ESPN with its broadcast of the Golden State Warriors facing off against the Houston Rockets, which was rated a 0.6 in adults 18-49. Also at 0.6 was the second place entry, another ESPN NBA game between the Milwaukee Bucks and the Los Angeles Clippers. Both of these managed to outperform FX’s “American Horror Story: 1984,” which remained at 0.5 but was forced to cede the first slot and slide down to third.

Beyond the top 3, “South Park” brought in another 0.5 for Comedy Central, even as it fell from second to fourth place. On Bravo, “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” returned at 0.4, down from its 0.5 season premiere last year, and “The Challenge: War of the Worlds” on MTV recovered from 0.3 to 0.4. The final 0.4 of the night went to “All Elite Wrestling” on TNT, where it improved after dropping to 0.3 the week before.

The foremost 0.3 of the night came from “Black Ink Crew” on VH1, marking a predictably consistent performance from the show. “WWE NXT” on USA recovered from 0.2 to 0.3, as did “Property Brothers: Forever Home” on HGTV and “The Real Housewives of Dallas” on Bravo.

History’s “Forged in Fire” had its own rise from 0.2 to 0.3, where it landed just ahead of “Full Frontal with Samantha Bee” of TBS. At the very bottom of the chart, a round of consistent 0.2’s came from “House Hunters International” on HGTV, “Shattered” on Investigation Discovery, and both “The Daily Show” and “Crank Yankers” on Comedy Central.
