Last week’s comedic reference to a ratings seesaw proved fortuitous.

After dipping to a series low last week, CMT’s reality series “Party Down South” rebounded to deliver strong ratings for Thursday’s airing.

The episode, one of the strongest performers to date, posted a healthy 0.38 adults 18-49 rating with 733,000 viewers.

Close to series highs, both marks put the CMT reality series right back on track. Prior to last week’s series low, “Party Down South” posted a series high 0.41 adults 18-49 rating with 732,000 viewers.
