“American Horror Story: Apocalypse” maintained its place at the top of the Wednesday cable ratings for the third week in a row, and experienced only a slightly smaller ratings drop this time around.

The FX horror series scored a 0.9 rating in the adults 18-49 demo with its third episode – down two-tenths from the 1.1 it had scored a week ago. The season premiere of Comedy Central’s “South Park” came second in the night with a 0.7 and 1.09 million viewers, down three-tenths from the 1.0 of its premiere last year.

Elsewhere, VH1’s “Black Ink Crew” managed to stay on par with its season premiere from the week before with another 0.6. Outside of the top 25, FXX’s “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” fell back down from its previous 0.3 to a 0.2.
