The MLB Playoffs led the cable ratings for the second night in a row this week. Unlike Tuesday night, though, it was TBS’ broadcast of the wild-card game between the Rockies and Diamondbacks that landed on top last night with a 1.3 rating in adults 18-49. Meanwhile, the season 8 premiere of Bravo’s “Real Housewives of New Jersey” followed closely behind with a 0.5. Additionally, TBS’ “Inside the MLB” special rounded out the top 3 with a 0.5.

Following its return Tuesday, OWN’s “Queen Sugar” aired another new episode last night as well but scored two-tenths lower than Tuesday’s installment with a 0.3 this time around. On Comedy Central, “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah” barely landed within the Top 25 with a 0.3. MTV’s “Teen Mom II: Being Vee” special also managed to rake in a 0.3 for itself.
