CABLE HIGHLIGHTS:  ESPN’s NBA doubleheader led Wednesday cable, with Cleveland vs. Boston at 0.87, and Houston vs. Clippers at 0.70.  On VH1, BLACK INK CREW gained 0.04 to 0.68, and AMERICA’S NEXT TOP MODEL ticked up to 0.30.  On TLC, MY 600-LB LIFE jumped a tenth to 0.49, and was followed by the premiere of SKIN TIGHT at 0.46.  MTV’s CATFISH returned at 0.40, followed by ARE YOU THE ONE, up 0.02 to 0.39 (with a steady 0.14 AFTER-SHOW).  Fox News reached the Top 10 courtesy of THE O’REILLY FACTOR at 0.40, also by far the highest total viewer rating of the night because of its overwhelming 50+ rating.  A primetime CONAN special was at 0.40 for TBS.  On Discovery, BERING SEA GOLD dropped 0.07 to 0.39.  HGTV’s PROPERTY BROTHERS slipped 0.03 to 0.38, and HOUSE HUNTERS INTL was at 0.34.  On Lifetime, LITTLE WOMEN ATLANTA returned at 0.37, and BRINGING UP BALLERS premiered at 0.21.  FX’s LEGION fell 0.12 to 0.37, perhaps the victim of its own oddness.  On A&E, DUCK DYNASTY was at 0.36, and JEP & JESSICA was at 0.26/0.19, compared to last week’s 0.20/0.18.  History’s SIX ticked down to 0.35.  On Comedy Central, WORKAHOLICS rose 0.03 to 0.34, and JEFF & SOME ALIENS had a 0.08 lift to 0.22.  The season finale of USA’s SUITS was steady at 0.32. Syfy’s THE MAGICIANS dropped 0.04 to 0.32, and THE EXPANSE was up 0.02 to 0.22.  BET’s THE QUAD lost a tick to 0.30, and then the TIME documentary series debuted at 0.12.  On FXX, IT’S ALWAYS SUNNY IN PHILADELPHIA shed 0.04 to 0.30, and MAN SEEKING WOMAN was down 0.02 to 0.10.  Food Network’s BAKERS VS FAKERS was down a hundredth to 0.30, and CHOPPED JR was at 0.21.  TNT’s MAJOR CRIMES edged up 0.02 to 0.25.  Tru’s THE CARBONARO EFFECT ticked down to 0.16.  E!’s SO COSMO was steady at 0.08. POP’s SCHITT’S CREEK was at 0.06.
