This week, it was “Basketball Wives” at the top of the Wednesday cable ratings, looking down at its competition.

The VH1 series managed to draw a 0.5 rating in adults 18-49, rising one-tenth of a point beyond the score it fell to last week. This was enough to put it past “The Challenge: War of the Worlds 2” on MTV, though just barely, as the show fought its way back from 0.4 to 0.5 as well. A History Channel special entitled “9/11: Inside Air Force One” rounded out the top 3 with a 0.4.

Elsewhere, “Black Ink Crew” found itself in fourth place after topping the chart last week, having fallen from 0.5 to 0.4. “Married at First Sight” on Lifetime pursued it closely at the same score, having recovered from its dip to 0.3 last week. On USA, “Snowfall” held out at its frequent 0.4, while Investigation Discovery’s “The Murder Tapes” remained at 0.3. Other consistent 0.3’s came from “Guy’s Grocery Games” on Food Network and “Property Brothers” on HGTV, even as “Black Ink Crew Compton” fell from 0.4 to rejoin them.

HGTV’s “House Hunters” stood at the forefront of the steadfast 0.2’s, where it found company in its sister series “House Hunters International” and OWN’s “Queen Sugar.” On WGN, “Dog’s Most Wanted” slipped in its second week from 0.3 to 0.2, with “Homicide Hunter: Lt. Joe Kenda” of Investigation Discovery suffering the same fate. “Expedition Unknown” returned to 0.2 after a few weeks at 0.3 on Discovery, where its trajectory was matched by Bravo’s “The Real Housewives of Dallas.”
