This week, “American Horror Story: 1984” made its return to the top of the Wednesday cable ratings.

The FX horror drama took the chart’s foremost slot by scoring a 0.5 rating in adults 18-49, moving up from third place despite actually having dropped from 0.6. In second place, Comedy Central’s “South Park” returned after a week off to post its own 0.5, an improvement over its 0.4 from two weeks ago. Finally, the NBA found itself in third place, as the Milwaukee Bucks played the Boston Celtics for a 0.4. This did not compare favorably with the 0.8 from the preceding Wednesday, when the Celtics battled the Philadelphia 76ers.

Elsewhere, “The Challenge: War of the Worlds” on MTV stumbled from 0.4 to 0.3, making it the highest-ranked broadcast at that score. TNT’s “All Elite Wrestling” fared worse, collapsing from 0.5 all the way to 0.3, where it landed beside a consistent performance from “Black Ink Crew” on VH1. “Expedition Unknown” returned on Discovery to hold at 0.3, and “The Oval” on BET did the same in its second week.

On the History Channel, “Forged in Fire” returned from a 0.2 back up to 0.3, leaving behind “Guy’s Grocery Games” on Food Network, which remained trapped at 0.2 yet again. Other recurring 0.2’s came from “Sistas” on BET, “House Hunters” on HGTV, and “Shattered” on Investigation Discovery. Towards the very bottom of the chart, Bravo’s “The Real Housewives of Dallas” surrendered the ground it gained last week and retreated from 0.3 to 0.2.
