NETWORK UPDATE:  No changes from this morning, as MOTIVE and SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE retained their increases from last week.

WEDNESDAY CABLE:  DUCK DYNASTY (A&E) was the highest-rated cable show of the night, but it was down a further 0.3 to 1.5 after last week’s tumble from the previous season’s premiere.  It was followed by 0.8 for BIG SMO, down 0.2 from last week’s premiere.  As detailed in our WORLD CUP SKEDBALL post, the Croatia vs. Cameroon and Chile vs. Spain matches were both at 1.3, with the morning Netherlands vs. Australia match at 0.9.  CATFISH (MTV) was at 1.0, up 0.2 from last week, and it was followed by 0.7 for an AFTERSHOW.  On USA, SUITS and GRACELAND were at 0.8/0.5.  That was up for SUITS (although just by a couple of hundredths that allowed it to round up) and down 0.1 for GRACELAND.  DUAL SURVIVAL (Discovery) held at 0.6.
