“American Horror Story: 1984” was no longer the leader of the pack in this week’s Wednesday cable ratings.

Instead, the top broadcast of the night came from ESPN and the MLB, as the Tampa Bay Rays played the Oakland Athletics for a 1.0 rating in adults 18-49. The match also held a comfortable lead over its closest competition, the premiere of “All Elite Wrestling: Dynamite” on TNT, which itself picked up a 0.7. “American Horror Story” fell all the way back from first to third place, meanwhile, failing to match last week’s 0.7 for FX as it dropped to 0.6.

Further down, “Basketball Wives” on VH1 held the line at 0.5, despite moving from third to fifth place. This kept it ahead of the ascendant “The Challenge: War of the Worlds 2,” which managed to rise from 0.4 to 0.5 on MTV. VH1’s “Black Ink Crew” also continued at 0.5, while, over at Comedy Central, “South Park” took a sizable hit from 0.6 to 0.4, knocking it down from second to eighth place.

Foremost among 0.3’s was “WWE NXT” on USA as it clung to its previous score. “Black Ink Crew Compton” also posted another 0.3, where it found itself in the company of a rerun of “The Simpsons” on Freeform. Discovery’s “Expedition Unknown,” in the meantime, broke free from its usual volatility and remained at 0.3, the same score HGTV’s “Property Brothers” held out at. Below them, on the very last rung of the chart, TBS’s “Full Frontal with Samantha Bee” slipped another 0.2 under its belt.
