For the second week in a row, it was a sports broadcast that led the Wednesday cable ratings, as ESPN’s broadcast of the Wizards vs Lakers NBA basketball game scored the top rating of the night with a 1.0 in adults 18-49. Comedy Central’s “South Park” followed closely behind with a 0.7, which was two-tenths higher than what it had scored last week. ESPN’s late-night edition of “SportsCenter” secured another spot in the Top 25 as well with a 0.6.

Continuing into its third season, USA’s “Mr. Robot” fell completely out of the Top 25 this week and hit a series low after barely scoring a 0.2 with 542,000 viewers.

Meanwhile, OWN’s “Queen Sugar” managed to tick up one-tenth from its previous 0.3 to a 0.4. On Comedy Central, “Broad City” held steady with another 0.3, while Bravo’s “Real Housewives of New Jersey” dipped back down to a 0.4.
