“American Horror Story: Apocalypse” and Halloween may feel made for each other, but the holiday resulted in the FX series taking a ratings hit Wednesday night.

“Apocalypse” maintained its hold on the no. 1 spot of the night, but was down two-tenths from its previous 0.9 to a 0.7 rating in adults 18-49. ESPN’s broadcast of the Indiana vs. New York NBA game came second place with a 0.6 and 1.37 million viewers. VH1’s “Black Ink Crew” rounded out the night’s top 3, and scored a 0.5 for the second week in a row.

Elsewhere, Comedy Central’s “South Park” returned from a week off with a 0.5, up a tenth from its previous episode, and Travel Channel’s special 4-hour broadcast of “Ghost Adventures Live” scored 0.4s and 0.3s.

Outside of the top 25, OWN’s “Greenleaf” was steady with another 0.2, as was FXX’s “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” (0.2).
