“American Horror Story: Apocalypse” stayed at the top of the Wednesday cable ratings this week, despite taking a predictable hit with its second episode.

The FX anthology series fell four-tenths from its previous 1.5 to a 1.1 rating in adults 18-49 with 2.21 million viewers, which was three-tenths less of a drop than “Cult” experienced between its first two episodes last year. The 2-part season premiere of “Black Ink Crew” came second and third in the night with a 0.7 and a 0.6, down from the 0.8 of its season 6 premiere. The season finale of “Black Ink Crew: Chicago,” meanwhile, ticked up one-tenth week-to-week from a 0.5 to a 0.6.

On OWN, the recently-renewed “Greenleaf” was steady with another 0.3. After taking a hit last week as well, USA’s “The Sinner” (0.3) was back up one-tenth with its season finale, while the midseason finale of “Suits” maintained a 0.3.

FXX’s “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” also scored a 0.3, up one-tenth from the 0.2 it had posted a week ago.
